    Default DMX moving head lights

    Hi all,

    I just received some lights from a supplier on ebay. One is a spot and one is a flood. Both are DMX controlled and RGB. The spot has multiple Gobos that can be controlled via DMX. Here is a video of the lights with a little bit of fog to accentuate the lighting. Let me know what you guys think. I was thinking of using the spots on my roof and floods facing the street.

    I want some of those!! That would make for some awesome effects! I would like to try and tinker with an arduino and some stepper motors to try and achieve a similar range of motion as the gobos. I found this on Ebay and it looks pretty close to the larger spotlight you have: http://www.ebay.com/itm/18-X-3W-LED-...item4d1d548be7

    The flood in my video is pretty much a movable version of this light. It is about 2x as bright as the 10w floods I have.

    could be rented it sometimes works out cheaper especially with the lamp time costs on the non led ones. you can get the inflatable domes to weather protect them too but i was more concerned about his structural engineer had approved the ridge modifications as they are not exactly lightweight to handle.

    I have a feeling those were up there for the video, then came down. Those units are too expensive to leave exposed like that

    FWIW, they were up on at least one other night as well, because he had them running the night ABC-TV was there for his participation in "The Great Christmas Light Fight."

    I've read a lot of posts and blogs about his show and everybody mentions the moving heads.

    From what I've seen those heads are in clear dome enclosures so they possibly are up longer.
