As with MagicQ and MagicVis, ChamSys is maintaining their philosophy of free software usage – users can run MagicQ on their PC or Mac outputting 64 universes of lighting and 8 layers of HD completely free.

Sales Director Tony Cameron commented “MagicHD is a very important step for ChamSys. We now offer an unbeatable package of lighting control, media play, visualisation and networking – all fully integrated together.  No-one else gets close to this offer.”
