Example 2

Standard app – switched practical

A ceiling lamp is turned on by the actress´ actuation with the original switch on the wall.
The LightingSensor detects the change in brightness of the original ceiling lamp and so triggers film lighting connected at the LFXHub directly or via DMX with the function “dimmer”.

Example 3

Duplicate an effect of a flickering tube

The LightingSensor picks up the effect of a flickering ” broken” tube by optical detection. The tube is in frame.
All connected tungsten or LED lamps hooked up at the LFXHub will copy this flicker effect send from the LightingSensor.

Video sample

What happens in this scene:

Actress Isabelle Huppert turns on and off a lighter in a barn at night – while walking around. The effect is synced with a china ball, following her hold by an electrician.

How it worked in this application

Electricians used a DV-camera (nightshot mode) with attached LightingSensor for manual bearing to the actress´ lighter.
This (de-) activated the “candle” preset of the LFXHub – actress controlled lighting.

Please do not worry about the black screen in the scene at the beginning. Image comes back to life at 23rd second.
