Over the years, these videos have been shown at numerous conferences and invited lectures. In response to requests for these videos, they have been shared online: documentation of the scientific experiments that led to the discovery that tolerance to network latency can be extended by enforcing a common clock, in this case, by delaying players' feedback from their own instruments to lineup with the signal arriving from their partner.
Setup A: Delays: vimeo.com/187646226
This video shows the increasing difficulty in synchronizing over increasing delays.
Setup A: Perspectives: vimeo.com/187647682
This video shows the difference in experience of delay from different perspectives.
Setup A: Commentaries: vimeo.com/189241592
This video shows the players commenting on the experience of playing with delay.
Setup B: vimeo.com/189272144
This video shows the solution we came up with---delaying each players' feedback from their own instrument.
