Digital Video Transport System used to link live music and dancers across a distance of over 9,300 km to create a seamless collaboration of cultures
Musicians in Stockholm and dancers in Kuala Lumpur used high-speed research networks to create a virtual stage and deliver a perfectly synchronised four minute live performance to audiences at the recent GÉANT Launch Event and ASEM (ASIA-Europe Meeting) workshop Gala Dinner.
The 2.5 Gbps link between the pan-European GÉANT and recently expanded Asia-Pacific TEIN3 research networks enabled artists separated by over 9,300 km to perform seamlessly together.
