The limitations of contact-based hardware (e.g. electrocardiography, pulse oximetry) for cardiac activity measurement pose an obstacle in many ultra-high-field MRI examinations. In this work, we present a freely available hardware and software system for acquisition and processing of video signals from human skin that we developed with the aim to make this contact-free method available to other researchers.
