"INTRODUCING LOLA" Workshop 2012

An inside and hands-on look to a distance musical performance and education A/V streaming system.
Trieste, April 2-4, 2012, in collaboration with GARR and Friuli Venezia Giulia Regional Government

Go to the NEW LOLA Project Web Site!


The workshop dedicated to music e-learning and performances using the LOLA system, has been hold from the 2 to the 4 of April 2012 in Trieste at the Tartini Music Conservatory, where LOLA has been developed. The workshop aimed to give an in-depth view of the system itself, its possibilities and challenges, with hands on sessions where interested participants tried the system themselves, and all other participants felt and saw it in action live!

This gave the participants a real feeling on how the system works, reproducing at the workshop their local "at home" latency conditions in the Tartini laboratory (e.g. reproducing what happens if you use LOLA between your site, and another collaborating institution somewhere else).

The workshop has been intended to gather a community of LOLA current and potential users, in order to start establishing a permanent production use of the system among interested isntitutions; this can also lead to common projects, and foster possible funding from various bodies.
