transmission imageLOLA (Low Latency Audio Visual Streaming System) is a low latency, high quality audio/video transmission system designed to reduce the transmission latency of both audio and video found in other technologies. The latency can be effectively reduced to as little as 35 milliseconds, allowing for real time performance, music instruction, and rehearsal streamed online in real time. UNCG is one of only 10 institutions in the United States currently testing and using this technology.

ONE – Concerto for Violin and Multimedia

This performance is the result of a collaboration between School of Music, Theatre and Dance – UNCG, New World Symphony, Internet 2, and the Royal College of Music.

Co-commissioned by Internet 2 and The New World Symphony, ONE is an experimental short film that draws connections between architectural patterns, musical figures and natural disorder in a search for harmony.

The film first portrays modern cityscapes and utilizes rhythmic symmetries to build an unbalanced vision of space and to raise chaos. It then dives into matter and follows the stream of constant change of biological worlds to finally widen into a new composition of space, light and color.

The Performance took place at the New World Center in Miami, Florida on March 22nd, 2016. The solo violinist, Fabian Lopez performed via the audio visual streaming system LOLA from the University of North Carolina Greensboro more than 800 miles away.
