In Linz in the Brucknerhaus visitors enter a room with a 3-D projection and are confronted by the audiovisual ambience of the network. Sensor pads on the floor allow contact with the virtual visitors in the network. What the audience at home has on their monitors is being projected in 3-D on a 15 by 20 feet screen. Acoustically the visitor can contact Service Area a.i. with speakers and microphones.
