Deadmau5 (Joel Zimmerman) is one of the world’s most influential DJs. When Deadmau5 announced his new 2019-2020 world tour, the electronic music producer unveiled plans for a modernized “Cube v3” stage concept. The iconic cube includes a DJ booth enclosed in LED walls and outfit with four PTZOptics 20X-SDI cameras used to distribute live video throughout the venue.

Zimmerman uses custom Python codes to control the open-source PTZOptics cameras which are synced up with his DJ software and an application called TouchDesigner. TouchDesigner is able to send commands directly to PTZOptics cameras in multiple different ways if you understand basic programming. For this project, Deadmau5 used Python to quickly send HTTP commands to the cameras in order to send movement commands.
