One of the difficulties of staging shows in our theatre are where to place the band and the musical director. We decided to put the band and MD at the back of the stage in front of our cyclorama. Whilst this sounded very good we found that the cast were missing cues from the MD as they couldn’t see him. I was tasked with finding a solution to this problem. After looking at various solutions involving hiring camera systems or using video cameras I decided that I would go for a low-cost Raspberry Pi based solution.
For a relatively cheap build I was really pleased with the final project. The Raspberry Pi camera worked perfectly for the rehearsals and shows. I was asked many times by people how I was able to get the video to the front of the stage and to the control room. This gave me many good opportunities to talk to people about the Raspberry Pi too!
