Music by Vivaldi and Mozart. Aula Magna of Conservatorio di Musica G.Tartini - 29/09/2012.
Edinburgh - London
Edinburgh Napier University and the Royal College of Music (RCM) have linked up to demonstrate the power of the Janet network in supporting
collaborative performances across remote locations.
The advanced network, whose latest edition, Janet6, was officially launched by Jisc at an event at the London Film Museum, has been designed to address future demands for high capacity connectivity. At the launch event, guests were treated to a unique musical performance which saw musicians from both the Royal College of Music, based in London, and Edinburgh Napier University playing simultaneously, in real-time, via audio video streaming using LOLA (LOw LAtency Audio Visual Streaming System) technology.

LOLA music performance at TNC2013
A LOLA ((LOw LAtency audio/visual system) performance at the TERENA Networking Conference (TNC) 2013. LOLA enables musicians and performing artists to interact in a natural way even if they are located thousands of kilometers from each other.
Based in Edinburgh Napier University of Music (UK), Stevan Waterman - composer, teacher and trumpet soloist -- performed with Uli Weber (guitar), Sander Baan (sax), Bouke Hofma (drums) and Jelmer de Haan (bass guitar), on stage in Auditorium 2 at the MECC in Maastricht, the TNC2013 venue.
Uli and Bouke are from ArtEZ School of Music Conservatorium (Arnhem, NL) and Sander and Jelmer from Prince Claus Conservatorium (Groningen, NL).

LOLA Project - 2014
This project was used to test a real-time, low latency, audio/video conferencing system.
This system was used to allow a music teacher to conduct a "live" remote guitar lesson with his student many miles away.
It also successfully allowed musicians at 2 different locations to play the same song together in real-time.
The North Georgia Network provided the extreme broadband speeds needed to transfer uncompressed video & audio between the 2 locations.
"Down the Columbia" by Jason Shannon
Finally musicians in different locations can perform together real-time! This is an original song called "Down the Columbia" premiered on the LOLA low-latency audio/video conferencing system. The performers were at two locations and separated by approximately 50 miles. The latency between the performers in this video is less than 10 milliseconds, equal to the speed of sound at 10 feet apart. This 10ms delay is imperceptible to the ear and provides a completely natural musical experience for the performers.

Connecting performers across the globe (JANET)
LOLA (Low Latency), developed by GARR and Conservatorio G.Tartini in Italy, is a unique audio-visual streaming technology, which enables musicians to play together in real-time, from different locations, using high-speed networks.
Janet provides a robust, low latency and low jitter connection between two points which is vital for LOLA to work. By virtually removing any delay when data is sent over the network, performances can take place, seamlessly, in real-time.
LOLA - a low latency audio video platform allowing for real time connections to take place between performing artists at distances of up to 1000 kilometers or more.

LOLA is a licensed software and it is available for free for all academic and education non profit uses. In all other cases, it has a shareware
license to support the project. Please contact us (Conservatorio Tartini as the IPR owner and GARR as its Agent and Representative) via email at
lola‑email@example.com to receive the appropriate license and for any further detail or information
you may need.
When we will receive via email the scan of your filled in and signed license (just the last page is enough) we will generate your license code and your login credentials, so you can access the restricted area of this site and download the installation kit and other items. You will also be added to firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, which is the discussion area for all registered LOLA users.
You should also be aware that in order to use LOLA you need a very specific hardware (we will also give you all the needed info) and a good and stable network connection: at least 1Gigabit clean path between locations, and this is something that currently no commercial provider can deliver: only academic and reseach networks can deliver this network service, and this network service is a fundamental componet of LOLA itself. Using m-jpeg compression, LOLA is also usable at lower speeds (but we suggest at least 100Megabit) and also in this case you need a commercial ISP which can deliver a clean and symmetric connection to make LOLA work properly.
