DMX Interfaces (ChamSys)

MagicDMX is a low cost, single universe USB DMX interface created by ChamSys which contains an on board processor to process the DMX packets. 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 isolation should consider the MagicQ Twin DMX Interface, the SnakeSys B4 or any of the MagicQ Wing products.

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 or the « demo mode banner ». Users requring these features will need a ChamSys interface such as Twin DMX Interface, Mini Wing, PC Wing Compact or SnakeSys interface.

 

MagicDMX

Basic

The MagicDMX Basic interface is aimed at users wishing to evaluate and learn MagicQ, technicians wishing to test fixtures, as well as students wishing to learn lighting in schools and colleges. MagicDMX Basic supports output of a full DMX universe via a 3 pin female XLR connector.

MagicDMX Basic is time limited to 5 hours continuous usage. After this time it is necessary to replug the device and to restart the MagicQ software.

MagicDMX

Full

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.

LED by garageCube

Mon nouveau Jouet !!

À propos du projet

A plug-and-play LED Kit designed for stage design, visual art, and live performance. User-friendly and adaptable for structure assembling using aluminum profile. Simple and ergonomic.

 

LED by garageCube can be plugged together in any order and are auto addressable. A single cable carries both power and data, reducing connections to a minimum. Our LEDs are a perfect complement to madMapper, but are also compatible with third party applications and lighting desk consoles.

 

 

With madMapper, the most advanced video and LED mapping tool, you can easily set up from simple to large scale installations. You can use all kinds of content, such as video files, live feed, and generative images, to control your LED by garageCube.

 

Use your favorite MIDI controller for perfect live control. You can use all kinds of content including video files, live camera feeds, and generative images to control your LED by garageCube.

 

 

LED by garageCube will be available in RGB or pure white, and in two different sizes: 50 cm and 1 meter. Light diffusers and transparent covers are included in the Kit.

 

The 50 cm bar fits in your hand luggage. No need to check them in when flying. Sixteen 50 cm bars are lighter than 4 kg!

 

 

Thanks to their aluminum design, LED by garageCube is lightweight and solid. Attach them to your brackets with simple M4 fixing screws.

 

The bracket system was designed for the LEDs to allow assembly in multiple positions and orientations. Two mounting brackets per LED strut are included in each kit.

 

 

Our system is also compatible with standard fastening elements available on the market either directly on the profile adapted for hex head screws or on our bracket mounting system.

 

The system has also been developed to realize complex structures combining 3D printing or other tailored fabrication techniques, making any of your DIY creations possible.

 

 

For manufacturing, we benefit from the experience of our Chinese partner, with whom we have been working for many years on the production of custom-made LEDs. Electronic parts are tested through several quality controls to ensure optimal quality.

 

  

 

 

 

 

Boris has been active in the audio visual field for over 10 years. With his Swiss company garageCube, he created the software modul8 dedicated to live video mixing. Then, in collaboration with 1024 architecture, they created madMapper a software solution dedicated to video and LEDs mapping. After designing some installations and making custom-made LEDs specific to his projects, he met Alexandre and the need arose to create a more versatile product, more adapted and accessible to the community of artists and audiovisual designers in which they evolve. After more than a year of research and testing on small and large scale installations, they decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to make the product achievable and accessible to all.

HeavyM is an intuitive projection mapping software, it is currently running in beta version. It allows the creation and projection of visual animations with great facility, in order to be projected on real surfaces with a projector. You can also use your own video contents, the software will adjust them automatically to your settings.

Before the beginnings of HeavyM, our dream was to do projection mapping, sadly we did not have the skills in infographics and motion design. Nevertheless, we were experienced in programming, that is how we came with the concept of a software that would generate animations adaptable on any volume configuration for us.

After developing a first Beta version, with which we had lots of fun, we decided to share it with you, for free. A large amount of you had downloaded this first version, and we did not expect such enthusiasm. Today, your energy is pushing us towards concentrating on HeavyM’s development, in order to create a tool corresponding to your needs. This campaign is crucial for HeavyM’s growth, now we need your support so we can go even further and develop the most awaited features. Let us all join today so we can create the greatest public community revolving around projection mapping.
