RENAM – BASNET EaPConnect cooperation brings ‘LoLa’ online music collaboration closer

The music education and performing arts community in Moldova will be able to rehearse, audition, learn and perform online thanks to technical cooperation between the Belarusian and Moldovan national research and education networks – BASNET and RENAM. Meeting on 4-8 October 2021, representatives of BASNET and RENAM took significant steps towards Moldovan use of LoLa data transmission technology, which has been provided through the EU-funded EaPConnect project.

LoLa (low latency audio visual streaming) technology, provided to the Academy of Music, Theatre and Fine Arts in Chisinau, enables real-time musical exchanges between artists who are physically located in remote sites, connected by advanced network services. However, the equipment needed connection, additional tuning and testing. These were the principal tasks identified for the attention of Alexandr Volkovich of BASNET during the October visit to Chisinau.
