Remote performance

Just had to blog this – it is an excellent demonstration of how new technology can be used in novel ways. Here we see Cisco’s Telepresence being used to facilitate a performance where the orchestra is in the room and the singers are in a remote location. Bear in mind that the singers need to hear the orchestra and see the conductor in real time for this to work!!! With previous Video Conferencing there is always a lag in the video and voice being transmitted from point A to Point B which would make this sort of live performance impossible!
