Beamz Virtual DJ Lets You DJ With Frickin’ Laser Beams
Lighting your DJ event is difficult for one reason alone, the amount of gear that needs to be setup. Currently, there is no all-in-one solution that gives us what we need in a lighting package. Lighting, much like lighting for movies or television studios, is an art form that has to be explored and tampered with to achieve the desired effect. On studio sets, they make use of the traditional 3 point lighting to set the mood for a scene, but DJ lighting goes far beyond that. Static lighting can only get you so far; what you need is lighting that is controllable, and less of them if that is possible.
A computer program to control strategically placed lights sounds like a good option. Instead of spending top dollar and motorized lighting fixtures that need to be watched after, a few good lights with the right kind of controller can achieve the same effect. Coupled with modern lights such as LEDs or lasers, a show can be completely programmed and controlled in the same way Serato Scratch Live controls digital media and songs. An offshoot of virtual DJ is working on a way to get it in line with the typical DVS system.
