Arts and Education

New digital techniques such as high definition videoconferencing are opening up completely new ways for researchers to learn together. Students can interact across the globe,  without leaving their home university.  Sharing digital information such as images of manuscripts, artifacts or paintings also enables more people to experience the arts without having to travel vast differences.
High capacity networks, such as GÉANT, linked together across the world, are central to arts and education as video and audio streams are too large to be efficiently and cost-effectively transmitted across the commercial internet.
