(Image right) rotation ≈ ± π/2 , tilt ≈ 0 , distance ≈ optimal (creates an ingoing and outgoing spiral at the same time). The crystalball is placed in the ADI in order to archive stabilisation, the crystal makes a permanent part of the DIS, the hope is that the crystal will allow possible quantum-effects to occour more likely. It seems as the crystal is not needed since this experiment is not conducted in vacum so the light will be slightly bent due to air currents in my test setup.

Configuration of the ADI-DIS-Complex setup that generated the pictures and movies on this page.
The setup that generates the patterns is basically a webcam that records its own picture, by adjusting the distance between the laptop LCD screen and the webcam a stabilised flow can be generated, in the small demonstration movie that i have put on my site i have rotated the webcam PI/2 rads and placed the webcam on a suitable distance so it is uncertain of the image is enlarged or decreased thus generating a stable signal.
The preview window of the webcam is filling the whole LCD screen. By moving my mousepinter around on the screen i can inject data. Injection can also be done by moving objects inside the ray of photons between my LCD screenand the webcam. The images and movies on my site is actually the recording of my webcam!
The movies on this page have been created and directly recorded by using AMCAP.exe a windows program that is installed with most webcamdrivers into the windows operatingsystem. The movies are actually AMCAP.exe recording its own image by letting a webcam record the image produced by amcap. If AMCAP.exe cant process a frame then that frame is dropped and resulting in a delayed pause of the spiral expansion… No animation data is lost due to the fact that the iterative rule of the spiral is controlled by the recording framrate of amcap.exe. The spirals expansion is quantised so basically no spiral movement is "lost" due to frameskips :) but the frameskips generate small jerky pauses in the movie as a sideffect. I expect the intensity of the spiral to increase slightly due to these delays since it will make the camera to record higer intensity levels for each pixel due to longer exposuretimes during the delay caused by frameskips in the recording process by AMCAP.exe .
If you want to remove the jerkyness then i suggest that you record your own movie and then remove the time syncronisation data since the delays and jerkyness is artificial and produced by the time syncronisation data that is encoded with the movie… if duplicate frames are found in the movie i suggest tossing away all duplicates in order to create a movie with fast flow and no jerkyness :) (i have no idea how to remove the timesyncronisation data and duplicates from the movie trivially, i suggest that you write your own move processing applications for these kind of tasks, remember that most movie applications existing today rely on the time sync data in order to replay normal recordings of humans in motion). Try play the movies with fixed framerate if possible.
(Images right) rotation ≈ 0 , tilt ≈ π/8 , distance : too far away (makes the signal smaller and smaller, if the camera is placed too close then the amplification will increase too fast creating an outgoing pattern). These two pictures have also a too high DIS input in form of a lava-lamp.
