We are a student group at Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire.
We’ve been trying to build our DI box for a while now but as we are getting close to the end of the semester, the pressure is getting higher.
Our main problem is getting the IR light to diffuse evenly (coming from our huge 140 LEDs IR-Illuminator).
I’ve looked in the forums and it seems others are also having the same kind of problems:
so I am going to just ask the people I know have succeeded, how they have approached this.
Our setup is basically:
-Microsoft webcam with 3 layers of exposed-developed films
-we use Lee Filter, 225 Natural Density Frost for our projection surface
-SHORT RANGE IR illuminator 140 LED
-we tried putting aluminum foil around our box to help diffuse the light
Now Onto the Questions, first to WhiteNoiz:
based on this thread
and the video
Could you post some pictures of the interior of your new box (or just talk a bit more about it)?
Also I remember you also used the same huge IR-Illuminator as we have (In fact I think I bought it because of your setup).
What is the diffuser that you are using in that picture?
Now a question to Fairlane:
From your photo gallery it seems you are also using the same IR-Illuminator:
How did you solve the problem? some insight would really be appreciated it.
