This is a demonstration of the Philips Hue lamp (meethue.com) controlled by DMX from a Strand GSX lighting desk.

The box doing the actual conversion is a Raspberry Pi which sits between the DMX from the Strand and the Philips Hue base station converting the DMX values into calls to the API used by Hue.

At present there are two personalities; 3 Channel Mode (Hue, Saturation, Dimmer) for full colour control and 2 Channel Mode (Colour Temperature, Dimmer) for just the various shades of white (adjustable CT)

The quality of output from these little lamps is fantastic - they don't use the standard primary Red, Green, Blue so some of the vivid colours you can achieve from a traditional RGB LED are a bit muted (or plain wrong) but the advantage of this is that you get MUCH better warm whites, cool whites, and pastel shades.
