Web video audience and interaction brings UPBEAT Festival to life

Researchers at the University of Nottingham have supported the development of a new web platform to host immersive events. It features a video audience where people can appear to watch performances and interact with the live acts.  This project is part of Horizon Digital Economy research into the future of festivals and how technology can enhance the live experience.

The new web platform, StreamPark has been created for national organisations, recognised theatres, and communities to come together at interactive digital parks, and will host UPBEAT Festival of Culture, Learning and Wellbeing on 22nd July.
