Internet2 Recognizes Efforts of NIU School of Music
During the fall member meeting of Internet2, the NIU School of Music was a vital partner in demonstrating a new technology known as LOLA. This LOw LAtency software product allowed for two musicians, 1000 miles apart, to perform together live and in high definition.
Paul Bauer, Director of the NIU School of Music, Dan Nichols, School of Music technology expert, and Cheng-Hou Lee, professor of 'cello and member of NIU's Avalon String Quartet, were all instrumental in making this work. Cheng-Hou performed in DeKalb in the School of Music's recital hall, while violinist Marjorie Bagley performed at the conference in Raleigh, North Carolina.
