[edit] Resources

A faster and simpler alternative is FreeJ (still in development but almost feature-complete). Following a presentation at HSF2009 I've checked out the code and it's really nice. At the base it's a C++ canvas library with SDL and OpenGL outputs (and some others) but the interesting thing is that it includes the SpiderMonkey JS interpreter. This means that one can load the library and then control everything using quickly-written JavaScript rather than C++. In addition, it provides a console interface which can be fed with JS directly, thereby providing live control, even from across the globe, of a given performance.

[edit] Proposals

[edit] From Michel (20. November 2009)

Use Intelligent Lights (aka moving heads/lights). They can be easily connected with an ethernet-DMX-adapter (like: ELC dmxLAN node1s). The software is free to use.

Many interesting effects would be possible.

Another idea: Instead of using a IR-camera to identify persons, why not using a face detection algorithm? Every camera has face detection/recognition, may be there is software existing for this.

My last idea for today: use a beamer (or more) to beam any effects on the persons. But that could be rather complicated.
