Darknet Video Streaming Technology
For our production of Darknet at Southwark Playhouse, we created a new app for Android devices that allowed smartphones and tablets in the actors' hands to display pictures and videos and to film and stream footage from one device to another. The whole system was controlled by the Stage Manager and cued by industry-standard software QLab.
We will be releasing the software under an open source license in the near future along with further details on how the technology was made and how it was used
