What is CdnStudio?

CdnStudio is an online ‘room’ that uses internet technology to bring collaborators from across Canada together. This digital tool takes separate video streams and blends them together in real time, allowing users to see and hear each other in the same digital ‘space’.

Our goal is for CdnStudio to use every-day technologies so to use it all you need is a laptop, webcam, headphones, blank wall, and a high speed internet connection. We are using non-proprietary technologies so that all artists can access CdnStudio. With CdnStudio, SpiderWebShow is revolutionizing the way performance is created in Canada, and you can be a part of it.

The first demonstration of this technology was presented on a closed network at the LMDA Confrence at Portland State University in July 2016. For the past 2 months we have been developing the next iteration of CdnStudio while in Residence with Queen’s University’s Stage and Screen Department. Our residency and office is situated at The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts where we plan to continue to develop CdnStudio.

CdnStudio is being developed thanks to the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) Community Investment Program.

The Birth of a Digital Rehearsal Process for Live Performance: A Slack Convo

I have been dreaming about this project for the better part of two years. The balance of the time was spent trying to find terms of reference to explain my dream to my colleagues. At several points along the path I abandoned hope. My desires far outstripped my technical acumen and it was only through a kind of patience, that has been a major part of SpiderWebShow’s success, that I was able to hold on.
