In the pandemic era, musicians are looking
for ways to perform live while being remote.
The internet has latency and anything
over 40 milliseconds causes difficulties.
Internet 2, a network that connects universities
and organizations, can transmit huge quantities of data. In
2014 the Chiara String Quartet, at the University of Nebraska
Lincoln, performed Mendelsohns Octet with the Avalon Quarter,
450 miles away at Northern Illinois University. The latency
was 19 milliseconds.
As long as youre inside a 750-800
mile range, you get the sort of delay that happens inside a
room, inside a performance hall said Howard Herring, president
and CEO of the New World Symphony, the Miami-based training
academy that uses Internet2 for remote coaching sessions and
link-ups with composers.
