Connecting a Mobile Device

Duke DeJong:[00:00:13]

Hey everyone Duke from CCI Solutions here with my friend Thomas Fonseca from Chauvet Professional and ChamSys.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:00:21]

We're here talking about the QuickQ console, lighting console. The QuickQ 10, 20, and 30 - size based on your lighting rig. One of the coolest features about this thing is not just that it's a great console but you've got this whole mobile aspect to it. And so whether it's an Apple device or an Android device, you can control it from anywhere - your Wi-Fi or the Wi-Fi that's built into this console can reach.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:00:47]

Exactly exactly. And it's really easy to use.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:00:50]

So it's easy to set up. So anyone - it doesn't have, doesn't take an IT person.

Duke DeJong:[00:00:57]


Thomas Fonseca:[00:00:57]

To go ahead and create a network and all this kind of stuff to connect the device to it.

Duke DeJong:[00:00:60]

And you see exactly what's on the screen.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:02]

Exactly. So you see the same thing so you have everything so you can use it as a secondary touchscreen as well as a device that you can now walk away go up to your own rig pull it up on your phone while you're up on a ladder trying to focus something turn something on.

Duke DeJong:[00:01:16]


Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:19]

So you can use it as a remote device...

Duke DeJong:[00:01:20]


Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:21] well as a secondary screen on board.

Duke DeJong:[00:01:22]

Or maybe your lighting guy got sick and didn't show up for a service and so you know your maybe your piano player hits a lighting cue or something in the middle of service. So lots of cool applications for this. Really important note, works for both iOS and Android devices.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:37]

Yes. So you can find it. It's a free download of the app on both the Play Store as well as the Apple App Store.

Duke DeJong:[00:01:45]

Awesome. So let's dig in and let's actually setup you've got a Samsung device here but the console setup is exactly the same either way.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:51]

Either way.

Duke DeJong:[00:01:52]

And then you download the app.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:01:53]


Duke DeJong:[00:01:54]

Dude, let's dive in. All right. So as we've talked about iOS devices Android devices, whether they're tablets or phones, all those things work. First thing we got to do is download the app, right. So you've got the app on the screen there. It's a lovely cue. That's pretty pretty obvious right. So you've got it loaded so let's get into this thing. Let's see what this looks like.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:02:13]

Yeah. So on the Play Store as well as the App Store, just go ahead and search for ChamSys and then you should see ChamSys QuickQ remote Right on there. And you can download, a free download, for either devices - style or devices. We're gonna connect, and because we were connected before it's going to auto connect. It's kind of great so you don't have to keep doing it again and again.

Duke DeJong:[00:02:37]

That's awesome. It remembers the last console that you were connected to.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:02:40]

Exactly. Just for this purpose we're gonna go ahead and disconnect so we can find it ourselves. So to be able to find a QR code you actually go into "Settings" - "Network" and then "Wi-Fi".

Thomas Fonseca:[00:02:55]

So again, this console these consoles have built in Wi-Fi and with a QR code it makes it really easy to connect.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:03:05]

You're going to see here and find any sort of glare - it's going to find the network and they're going to auto connect right there for you.

Duke DeJong:[00:03:16]

So now that could be easier. So there's that. What if we're connecting that to our own network, our own Wi-Fi system at that point then, what we've got to do is set the IP address on the console to be in the same range. And then the app should find it?

Thomas Fonseca:[00:03:32]

Yes. So on the app you saw here you had three different ways. When I disconnect you can connect to the last console that you've had. You have the QR code as well as a manual IP address as well so you can connect it that way.

Duke DeJong:[00:03:50]

So in that case we're we're setting it we're putting in the IP address of the console itself.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:03:55]


Duke DeJong:[00:03:55]

And assuming everything's in the same IP range. If you don't know what we're talking about. Go ahead use the Wi-Fi.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:04:02]

Use the Wi-Fi.

Duke DeJong:[00:04:04]

Or talk to your network guy. But once you set an IP address for your console essentially you're just typing that IP address into the app.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:04:11]

Exactly, and the really nice thing about it you do have a couple of settings here. You have the name of the the Wi-Fi network then you can actually find if you search for your network with your phone or anything else. It is password protected, so you can change it names you want to, you can change the password if you want to. And under advanced you have different channels. So if there's a lot of traffic within that network you can change the channels to, to free your device and you can see the IP address right there. And the same one that was connected.

Duke DeJong:[00:04:52]

All right so there you have it. Portability, about portable access and control for this console super, super simple.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:04:58]

Easy to use.

Duke DeJong:[00:04:59]

Whether you've got an iPad, Android - I mean I'm an Apple guy so I don't even know what they call these. But in ...

Thomas Fonseca:[00:05:06]

All the other Android stuff.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:05:08]

...And Android video device or your iPhone or your Samsung Galaxy or whatever whatever it is as long as it's iOS or Android.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:05:17]


Duke DeJong:[00:05:17]

I think it's super, super simple. Even if you don't have a network this thing will do a built in or you can connect it to your network and use your own Wi-Fi either way.

Thomas Fonseca:[00:05:24]


Duke DeJong:[00:05:24]

Super simple. Awesome. So the QuickQ 10 QuickQ 20,QuickQ 30 all available on our website as well as more training videos. Just go to
