High-speed and stable transmission of data was vital for the performance experience, and this would have been difficult to achieve using ordinary network circuits. Research and education networks like AARNet are purpose built for delivering the high bandwidth and headroom required for transmitting huge volumes of data, such as produced by volumetric video technology, and research more broadly.
The SuperSpeed research and education network connectivity between TOKYO NODE and the International Convention Centre Sydney was provided by AARNet, Australia’s Academic and Research Network, ARENA-PAC, Arterial Research and Educational Network in the Asia Pacific operated by the WIDE Project, and GOREX, The Guam Open Research and Education eXchange.
This performance was made possible through collaboration between Keio University Graduate School of Media Design (KMD), Canon Inc., Bascule Inc., and Mori Building Co., Ltd., WIDE Project with the Cyber Civilization Research Center (CCRC) at Keio University, which coordinates the research and education network.
