Just a question : Is it possible to replace webcam system by infrared system in thé future?
Thanks

Yes, it definitely is possible :) The reason this wasn't done in the current version of Aerodrums is because the USB camera we depend on has a filter that blocks IR light and there were no reasonable alternatives available.

So..... any news on this one? I just wrote you an email a few minutes ago. Then I saw your reply, so I keep my hopes up. ;-)

I too would welcome a system other than webcam so happy to hear it could be a possibility. I find the cabling from camera to computers a little untidy and also easy to unbalance the camera from the tabletop.

Hello also be interested in using infrared, anyone have any solution?
It would help a lot and it would be more comfortable without that reflector obfuscating our vision, although we can wear sunglasses ...
Would it be possible to replace the reflector LEDs with infrared LEDs?
Richard, are you guys working on something to improve this?
Hug to everyone!

We are working on a solution (and have been for a long time now) that will address both Viveur's and Michael's issues.

Good to hear your looking into this. I was an early user of Aerodrums and was very impressed with the system, but couldn't get on with the brightness of the ring light.

If you managed to get an infrared-based system working I'd buy Aerodrums in an instant :)
