ChamSys Unveils Contest for Programmers “Stuck at Home”

There’s a massive new 200-fixture rig that was going to premiere at the now-cancelled Prolight + Sound 2020 show. There are also a lot of talented lighting programmers and designers finding themselves “stuck at home,” who would love a chance to show their creative chops. Put them both together and you have an exciting remedy for the “Coronavirus Blues,” called the ChamSys Online Programmers Competition.

Sponsored by ChamSys, the contest, which runs between now and April 10th, provides lighting pros with more than a creative outlet during slow times, it also offers a chance to win a new MagicQ MQ70 console, something that is sure to open bright, new possibilities when the curtain rises once again on live concerts and festivals. The first 25 entries in the contest will also receive a MagicDMX Test Kit, while the three top runners up will earn a premium swag bag.

Entering the contest is simple. To participate, entrants merely have to download the Vis/Base show file of the CHAUVET Professional PL+S 2020 rig, select a 1-3-minute song of their choice, and then program the lights using MagicQ with MagicVis visualisation.

Once they do that, entrants have to record their entries via screen capture, and submit them, along with the show file to by 11:59 pm Eastern Time (US) on April 10th. The entrant’s name, location and mailing address must be included in all submissions.

The judges evaluating each submission are Max Koehler and Ryan Warffuel of Antic Studios, Phil Watson and James Harrison of ChamSys, and Michael Graham of CHAUVET Professional.For complete contest rules visit
