Ambient Lighting for Korean Karaoke based on Screen Colors and Singer Interaction


Objectives: In this paper, an interactive ambient lighting system for Korean Karaoke using the Neo-Pixel strip is proposed to reflect the singer’s action. This increases the immersion in the Korean Karaoke. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The singer’s action is reflected in the lighting and the screen which give accents in the room and also controls the ambient lighting in front of the screen. We acquired the singer’s action by the Kinect device, which is then processed by the processing software. The output controls the ambient light in the Korean Karaoke. Additional lighting controls can be also incorporated into the system, for example, a lighting control which controls the lighting according to the screen colors of the music video played in the front screen. Findings: Conventional Korean Karaoke has only simple lighting which does not match the mood in the Korean Karaoke. The contribution of this work is that it introduces the usage of interactive ambient lighting, and thus is a first attempt to introduce interactivity in the Korean Karaoke. This provides the singer with more immersion, and will result in a greater satisfaction, which again will elevate the sales of musical instruments for Korean Karaoke. Application/Improvements: The proposed technique can be directly applied to construct an interactive musical instrument for Korean Karaoke which gives the singer an increasing immersion.
