Technical description
A seven day Open Lab at the studios of Dansmakers Amsterdam with flexible audiovisual set-ups inlcluding live-streaming, holographic projections and a multiple projector and camera set-up. Our core operation was d3 Technologies media server. BeamLab provided technical and creative support. 

How did BeamLab support?
During BeamLab PTL we facilitated in technical advice with a team of technical specialists, a creative director and flexible equipment set-ups. Two main research topics stood out during these sessions; What are the visual possibilities of holographic projections in a performance? How do you integrate live streaming with a (small-scale/puppetry) performance?Set-ups were built up by our team in collaboration with the participants. The set-ups were adjustable to the concept and needs of each participant. BeamLab shared the progress of the PTL workshop daily via our YouTube live-stream.
