Compact and powerful lighting console

The MagicQ Compact Connect is a highly portable USB powered lighting console that is great for us in wide range of applications

The MagicQ Compact Connect is a lightweight USB control surface that connects to your PC or mac to control lighting, media and LEDs.

The console is small enough to be transported in hand luggage and is packed with powerful features. It has 2 direct DMX512 outputs and can broadcast up to 64 universes of ArtNet and sCAN directly from the onboard network port without needing for additional licenses or dongles. The design of the compact provides illuminated access to fixture parameters via 8 rotary encoders and live show control through 10 playback faders featuring Flash, Go and Select buttons as well as dedicated Grand Master and Crossfader for overall level control.

The compact connect is great for use for Lighting Designers or for installation into theatres, schools, clubs, studios and venues. This affordable solution offers quick tactile playback control in combination with the power of MagicQ software running on Windows, Linux or OSX.

The MagicQ Compact connect is part of the Chamsys connect range. The smaller Mini Connect is also available.
