Most cameras have a mode where you can manually control all the settings.. I would set the camera to manual mode, do some tests during a rehearsal. Adjust the exposure so that nothing is over or underexposed when the stage is normally lit, and manually set the focus such that anyone on the stage is in focus at all times. Ideally for audio, you would use ...

As AJ Henderson mentioned, you program the Kinect with a PC using various software packages, either ones that support Kinect natively, or by using the Kinect SDK. One that we use often is Derivative TouchDesigner. There is a free educational version you can download and use for non-commercial work. Projector wise, I'd recommend something of at least 10,000 ...

Augment as needed or desirable with ambient. Use ...

Low-budget scenario: Place camcorder on tripod. Disable auto-focus, disable auto-exposure, disable everything... Sometimes you can do it only on "PRO" cameras.

Make sure, you got good focused image: create ...

The easiest way to work with a Kinect for custom work is to use it with a PC, so choose the appropriate projector for the room and lighting and then get the hardware to hook the PC up to it. Specific projector recommendations is likely too specific to the current time and is going to ...

Besides Max/MSP or Pure Data, which have already been mentioned, you can look into software like Processing, which can also be used to generate visuals, I believe. Pure Data supports OSC and MIDI I believe, which makes it easy to hook up the software to input devices which you can use in your DJ sets. So you can potentially control the visuals at the same ...

The Max/MSP modular environment has a package called Jitter which is used for modifying videos in realtime. I've not had the chance to play with it myself, but I've seen it used in video art installations. Max supports several kinds of control such as MIDI and OSC, so I imagine all of these could be used to control video. You'll have to make your own ...
