About the hardware

MVTP-TICO-4K is designed to be a low latency FPGA tool for collaboration in performing arts. The hardware is designed to be a real-time, standalone device (no PC is required). The video streamed is 4K p60 with 16x 24-bit/58 kHz embedded audio. The added latency is under 1 ms. With devices like the MVTP-TICO-4K we can connect artists over networks, allowing them to new ways of musical experiences, collaboration and cultural exchange.


Video-based research and education is developing quickly at UiO these days, with the need for better, faster and easier-to-use systems. In the coming year we will test a number of different video streaming solutions with the aim of supporting activities in varied projects, including RITMO, fourMs, eVIR, and the new international master's programme Music, Communication and Technology.
