The setup of your solution affects compatibility. Currently, our mobile app allows pairing of a single device with one mobile. The Smart Remote Controller can control up to three Tail Air devices. If you utilize the OBSBOT Webcam software for computers, its capability increases. With Tail Air devices connected to NDI, there's theoretically no limit to the number of devices, provided your network status can support this setup. For a wired connection, the number of ports and capabilities of your switcher are key factors for Tail Air's multicam setup.
The relevant info is as followed:
The battery in Tail Air is not replaceable. If you need extra endurance, consider our 360° play-more combo. Alternatively, you can use a power bank to extend the device's endurance.
To capture a video signal, connect your two devices to the same switcher using either a micro HDMI or USB port. If you need to control the devices, our smart remote can manage up to three at once. For a Power over Ethernet (PoE) connection, use a VISCA-compatible control panel to handle your Tail Air devices. If you're controlling and receiving video signals from more than two Tail Air devices, consider using NDI supported hardware or software.
