Chamsys, a sister company to Chauvet Professional unveiled their new Quick Q series control desks. Unlike the previous Chamsys consoles, these consoles are designed for easy use, easy setup and high affordability. The Quick Q comes in three sizes: Quick Q 10, Quick Q 20, and Quick Q 30.
The Quick Q10 single universe console comes with a 9.7” touchscreen, 5pin XLR and a network port for DMX communication, 20 fixture faders, two encoders for Hue/Saturation control, 2 USB ports, 1/8” jack for an audio interface, a single Grandmaster, two master faders and a cue stack fader. Other features include a full-color wheel, communication over sACN, ArtNet, and Pathport. The console does allow one external touchscreen monitor and includes visualizer software for easy visualization of programming. This console also allows the ability to connect any smartphone or tablet over WiFi for handheld operation.
The Quick Q20 is similar to the 10, however with the addition of a second universe, 4 attribute encoders, and 10 multiple function playbacks, it is designed more for the use of moving light programming.
Finally, the Quick Q30 tops off the line with a 4 universe, 3 5Pin XLR ports, 40 fixture faders, a fader for intensity control, and full MIDI and MIDI timecode support.
All three of these consoles have a scheduled availability of December 2018.
