Fish light


Already have green strip.





Need 9 cells amazon, 5 bucks for 2 cells


Need 2 controllers,  1 to use, one to experiment with.

Icstation 12V 30A 3S Lithium Battery Protection PCB BMS Board for 18650





FBCJustin Streaming todo.

Summary of step 1 desired feature set:

1. stream live to internet

1a Existing live stream to You Tube is sufficient for now.  We must solve the erratic upload problem now, before we move on.  Retry this with internet box tied down and power lead secured.


This is exactly what I did! Figured it out before you posted it though.

NETWORK 1 SETUP (with internet connection)
Router 1 – default settings, DHCP ON
LAN 1 – Static IP (I think you can use auto obtain IP), Default Gateway –, w/ DNS

Router 2 – DHCP OFF
LAN 2 – Static IP ; Default Gateway – Blank ; DNS – Blank
— * It will show as Unidentified Network on your adapter settings window.

I have internet on network 1 while I can file share on network 2 (no internet access) for work. 2 different networks, 1 pc



Why do we have to occasionally hard reset the internet box?

Heavy power switch. Where did the “power Conditioner” go?

Laptop boot on power, sleep on power down

2 allow real-time camera switching

2a –  Implement camera feed switch.

2b – laptop to control switching interface

2c – Router from home to mount in 19 in. Rackd.  –    2.d current inputs : 1 Sony camera remotely steered, 1 Sony camera fixed at sound booth.

3 use one remote camera and one fixed camera for now.

3a.  –  one remotely controlled camera

3b- Pan/tilt mechanism / controller done, needs tuning.

34c- zoom, focus etcetera.

3d-Evaluate lanc  dongle.  Buy. Camera XA35.

3e  Camera drive.  Lanc drive. add joystick or wheel to LANC zoom

4 Use mixed audio stream from existing sound board.

4A  Why is the fan in the switch so loud?

4b. Key to switch / software /

4c – do we have audio coming in from Sound Booth Channel 8?

   4d Get app to work on nexus tablet.

4e. Sound Board private network

5 Send use able stream of camera feed for ProPresenter to display on projectors.  Use ProPresenter as a input “Camera” source to switch.


Is ther a way to with the exsisting video on the Lightening outputs



Random Notes


Initial video switcher setup





Initial video converter (red  box ) set up


Control duc source , change to HDMI IN

Output 1080i, 59.94.

Control SDI  OUT SOURCE. scale if other than I.

How do I come to terms with LANC?

Uthe Sparkfun motor control board wires up:

Dir A- 12
Speed A – 3

DirB – 13

SpeedB – 11

Here is a wii Nii nunchuck based project

Here ist the demo software for the board:


this is the easy driver from spark fun



this one uses digital smooth





Looks like a decent 3 axis joystick for 40$


Hall Effect sensors HAL115C



Installed on the back of a DC motor









Faceplate on the black steering box is 12×7 5-8






Box dimensions


Using a PS2 controller to steer the camers

here is a link to servo drives


dimensions for controller with 4 joysticks

50 mm hole = 1.968 in

63mm  = 2.48 in

stroke at the knurl is 1.6







Dual camera controller

This is text from the new editor interface

How do I come to terms with LANC?

One wire dual direction LAN.  Takes 4 identical commands for the rec. to see it as a valid command.

Example code:


tons of detail:

FocusNear = 0x4728, // Used for IDLE state
FocusRecFar = 0x2394, // Used for RECORD state
FocusRecNear = 0x2294, // Used for RECORD state

these are the few we want to try


AF Iris auto
77 White balance reset (not if white balance is selected via menu)
55 Iris more open

Iris more open
53 Exposure auto/man. toggle (models of the early 90’s)
Iris more close
49 White balance toggle (only cameras until approx. 1996)
