FYP Final Report

4 07 2013

Results were released last week and I received the second highest grade possible for my FYP. Quite happy with it given all the hours I invested in it. The report can be found here for anyone who is interested. Thank you to everyone who helped me through this process especially my sister.





FYP Demonstration Video

This is a demonstration/walkthrough of my Final Year Project in the University of Limerick. The application takes in OSC messages from an iPad running TouchOSC and then converts them into DMX control messages to be sent to a lighting system. This application was built using Max/MSP 6.0

New Equipment and First Tests

24 09 2012

Picked up a LanBox LCX and a ShowTec 4 channel dimmer from the department the other day and I built a few cables that I needed in order to get some lights working with the dimmer today. Lots to do really but I said I’d get a start at it and see what kind of control I would be able to get on my first try. I am now able to control up to four channels of dimming wirelessly from my laptop! It’s only small but once I am able to get some fixtures rented it is all I have. Did I mention I only have two small desk lamps to control at the moment? I suppose now is a good time to ask if anyone has any DMX controlled lights that they could lend me for a bit to please contact me!

 

Here’s some pictures:

Creating a DMX Lighting Controller for Live Events Using Max/MSP/Jitter

17 09 2012

I have finished my proposal for my FYP in Music, Media, and Performance Technology and turned it in! This marks the beginning of the my last year in the University of Limerick. This is going to be a long but fun year!

I get to experiment with moving lights and building a system within my computer for me to control them. This means I’ll be able to plug into any DMX controlled lighting system in any venue and will be able to control it through my computer and an iPad app. Really looking forward to working on this throughout the year!Image
