MagicDMX is a low cost, single universe USB DMX interface created by ChamSys which contains an on board processor to process the DMX packets. Because all timing is done by the interface rather than relying on the host operating system, this ensures that the DMX timing is correct and consistent. MagicDMX connects to MagicQ running under Windows, Mac or Linux. It doesn\’t use any special drivers for the device, so you can just plug and play. MagicDMX defaults to outputing on Universe 1 from the MagicQ software but can be used on any universe.
MagicDMX has electrical protection for normal usage. Users requiring full optical isolation should consider the MagicQ Twin DMX Interface, the SnakeSys 4 Universe Ethernet Interface or any of the MagicQ Wing products which all have full optical isolation.
The MagicDMX interfaces do not unlock the restricted features of MagicQ software such as remote control via iOS/Android, audio input and full screen execute window. Users requring these features will need a ChamSys interface such as Twin DMX Interface, Mini Wing, PC Wing Compact or SnakeSys interface.
Note, MagicDMX interfaces to do remove the \’demo mode\’ banner from MagicQ. The MagicDMX Full will output a single universe of DMX without any time restriction.
The MagicDMX Full interface is aimed at Professional users wishing to have uninterrupted DMX lighting control for shows and installations. The MagicDMX Full provides a great lighting troubleshooting system.
It can be configured to either output or input a single universe of DMX, but unlike the MagicDMX Basic interface, MagicDMX Full is not time limited and can be used continuously.
MagicDMX Full outputs DMX via a 5 pin female XLR connector. If you want to use the MagicDMX interface in DMX input mode a gender reverser is required.
MagicQ software offers powerful lighting control with loads of features that lighting designers have come to rely on, such as full lighting visualisation, pixel mapping, and HD media playback on up to 8 different layers, all integrated smoothly to streamline workflows, save time, and shorten learning curves on even the most complex lighting systems.
