You’ve seen this LED Ring before. It was connected to my PhotoBooth Controller. Now it is connected straight to a PC. I wrote an application that allows integration of the LED Ring into common photoboth applications like Breeze, Darkroom Booth or dslrBooth.
The LED Ring is controlled and powered through USB.
To control the LED ring from a booth application, a controller applications is available. It is implemented as a set of .net applications running on Windows. The setup image can be found in the download section below.
The latest release includes a Windows Service that provides a REST webservice interface. It allows to control the LED ring through parameterized URLs. The application may be used with dslrBooth (version 5.22.1401.1 or later), Breeze or Darkroom Booth. It comes with a sample configuration for both dslrBooth and Breeze. For testing, LedRingController.exe is provided as a command line application. CmdLauncher.exe is a helper to call the REST webservice from the command line.
The LED Ring controller commands include a circling rainbow, static colors, blinking colors, circling of a few LEDs and a count-down style light effect. An automatic self timed countdown has been added to provide a nice countdown for Breeze and similar apps. Commands may be tuned through parameters like animation speed, color, segment size or direction of rotation.
Mapping between booth software commands and commands sent to the LED ring is defined in an XML configuration file.
