Here is an interesting project. I have been asked to help spec some gear for a remote TV studio. The company doing the install has hundreds of these remote studios across the country, everything can be controlled from master control in either of their two home studios. It is actually really cool, they can turn on and focus the cameras, mix audio, and switch the studio lighting on and off. However, this new studio, the client want to do something a little more modern and have a cyc backdrop they can light. So, they want to use some LED strips to allow for some color creativity on the cyc. That is the easy part. The hard part is: how do we control it remotely. I Know we have had a few discussions on PC based lighting control, which I think is the way to go and use a VNC program to get in from master control. We are also interested to know if there are any hardware controllers that allow remote access that don't cost $10K or more. So, the goal is to set up a simple system that will allow either a user at the studio or in master control mix a pretty color (or colors) and then be happy. So if you have suggestions on easy to use software, or hardware that fits the bill, let me know.
