Noisebridge has been equipped with DMX controlled light fixtures since NB10.
Lighting is set as a proscenium-style plot, facing the front of the Hackitorium.
Our setup is built using OpenLightingArchitecture and ArpNet.

What is still needed

- Draw an updated diagram for this wiki!
- Print out documentation for users in the space who wanting to disco!
- Add manufacturer documentation for each of our specific lights
- Modifying and extending our system via PD, Max/MSP, Python, LightKey MacOS app, etc.
- Additional documentation is needed for the wiki page + use of this awesome lighting!
- A physical DMX/Midi controller would be great for running scenes and lighting changes. Help set something up!
- 6 par can clamps for easier mounting.
- Integrate the lighting plot with our existing RGB Signage in the main Hackitorium.
- Integrate the lighting plot with our Flaschen-taschen protocol.
