ChamSys announces winners of Online Programming Competition
With many designers and programmers looking for new challenges during the lockdown, the ChamSys Online Programming Competition offered a creative outlet: the chance to program the power packed 200-plus fixture rig that CHAUVET Professional had earmarked for the company’s stand at the 2020 ProLight + Sound exhibit before the show was ultimately cancelled.
Drawing over 200 entrants from around the world, the contest asked participants to create a three-minute or shorter show with the PL+S rig, using ChamSys MagicVis software. After a careful evaluation, the judges named Amir Cohen of Tel Aviv, Israel the winner for his inspired show. Amir dove into MagicVis and even wove in different camera vantage point angles to stunning effect in his programmed show. Second place winner was Niklas Fuchs of Vienna, Austria, and the third place finisher was David Misakyan of Moscow, Russia. Cohen received a MagicQ MQ70 console for this winning effort. Fuchs and Misakyan were awarded premium swag bags, and 25 other entrants were given MagicDMX Test Kits. All earned the satisfaction of taking a show rig that never got to be, and turning it into a virtual engine of unforgettable looks.
