In this Verktøykassen we will be looking into video synchronization; when two or more videos are playing synchronously on separate screens or projectors. Course leader Stian Remvik will present various methods with different software and hardware, and look closer at the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods.

Here are a few examples of video synchronization, both of which are projects where Stian has been working together with the artists:

About Verktøykassen

Verktøykassen (the toolbox) is BEK’s new meeting place to learn about and try out technical tools, be it both hardware and software. There is a low threshold for participation and a high hands-on factor. Each time, a new “theme of the day” is launched, and the participants can come with inputs or questions that are raised jointly. The toolbox will take place regularly throughout the spring, and is led by game developer and programmer Stian Remvik.
