Lighting and Camera Setup

Light Sources:

  • Phillips Hue Colour Lamp (top right)
  • Phillips Hue Colour Lamp (Middle)
  • Phillips Hue Colour Lamp (Bottom)
  • Phillips Hue Lightstrip
  • “DJ David Craddock” white illuminated sign
  • “Live on Air” blue sign
  • Laser (green or red laser wash)
  • Revolving disco balls

Dark Music Lighting Settings

For Phillips Hue sources I use Hue Sync on my broadcast PC which syncs the lights in time with the music. I will use different palletes depending on the event. For darkwave/dark music style events I will use this pallette:

I will have the ‘Live on Air’ sign on, but not the disco balls or the laser.

Generic Disco/Party Settings

For lighter/retro music settings such as my bi-weekly ‘DJ’s Choice’ I will use the following settings:

I will have the ‘Live on Air’ sign on, and the disco balls and laser.

Cameras

All cameras are mounted on tripods and require a USB port. Most have USB extension cables.

  • Spedal Wide Angle camera – this will be used as the DJ CAM as the wide angle will cover the entire room
  • Logitech C920 A – this will be used as the Decks Cam Right
  • Logitech C920 B – this will be used as the Decks Cam Left
