Nick Ho powers MCW19 Shanghai Show with ChamSys MagicQ MQ60
At MWC19 Shanghai, to put on lightshows for some of the brightest minds in tech, and surrounded by cutting edge contrivances like self driving cars, 5G mirrors and 8K 360 virtual reality experiences, Nick Ho and his team navigated through time constraint issues to interface on short notice with some advanced laser software. Helping him accomplish this feat were the flexibility of the ChamSys MagicQ MQ60 console. “We used a feature in the ChamSys, called the ‘ArtNet Retransmit’,” he said. “This allowed us to use the MQ60 to transmit the incoming LTC to Pangolin via ArtNet.” As a result, Ho and his colleagues, Justin Poh the MQ60 programmer, and Wang Jin, who programmed Pangolin Beyond, were able to create a stunning 8-universe show that married the best of lighting and lasers to captivated the tech savvy crowd at MCW19 Shanghai. In addition to the laser displays, the opening day stinger was enlivened by a color scape created with RGBA fixtures. “Our opening show featured seven different RGBW colors and some LED Ribbons. The MQ60 can easily create a fixture profile within minutes in order to program the launching device that was built especially for this conference,” concluded Nick.
