Music Performance & Instruction over High-Speed IP Networks

Time 10/14/08 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

High-speed IP networks like Internet2 in the USA and GEANT2 in Europe are creating opportunities for new kinds of real-time applications that connect artists and audiences across the world.

A new generation of audio-visual technology is required to deliver the exceptionally high quality required to enjoy performances over IP networks.

There are three major challenges around transmission of high-quality live music performances over IP networks: true acoustic representation, efficient and loss-less compression / decompression that preserves the performance quality, and recovery from IP packet loss in the network.

This session will analyze each of these three elements and provide an overview of the mechanisms developed by Polycom to deliver exceptional audio and video quality, and special modifications for the Live Music Mode in Polycom equipment.

The session will also discuss how the Manhattan School of Music uses this technology for transmission of their live music performances over the high-speed Internet2 network.
