Who organizes NPAPW?

Held in Europe and the United States annually since 2009, NPAPWs are a collaborative project of GÉANT, Internet2, New World Symphony, GARR and other European National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and various cultural institutions around the world. 

Call for participation

For NPAPW, we encourage submissions that transcend experimental application domains such as telematic improvisation, innovative pedagogical approaches, promote cross-cultural engagement, and technological innovations that support experimental media over high-performance networks.

There is a formal submission process preceding each workshop.

What technologies will be a part of the NPAPW demonstrations?

This is constantly evolving, but here is a (mostly) comprehensive list:

  • LoLa – an ultra-low-latency Windows platform that allows synchronous performance in above CD-quality audio and HD video.
  • Ultragrid – a cross platform software application that uses consumer devices for streaming up to 8K resolution video and multichannel, high resolution audio.
  • Polycom/H.323 – A commercially produced software and hardware communications standard particularly effective for educational programs.
  • MVTP – A hardware streaming solution offering up to 4K at 60FPS with TICO compression.
  • JackTrip – A multichannel audio streaming solution for Macintosh and Linux.
  • Nimbra – Hardware encoding solutions offering extremely low-latency 4K streaming over IP networks.
