Interactive Remote Demonstrations (IRDs)
IRDs arrived at the American Association of Woodturners Seminar in 2016 based on technology described by Alan Zenreich. IRDs were particularly important for the US woodturning clubs because of the significant distance involved.
It is very possible this will become the 'norm' even when we transition out of the Covid-19 lockdown. An increasing number of the pro demonstrators are now undertaking 'paid-for' IRDs at $5 or $10 per head as well as club funded IRDs.
It will be interesting to see what effect the ability to have the IRDs delivered into individual members homes will have on the woodturning clubs.
