HelloWorld is the deployment phase of PropulseArt.
HelloWorld aims to establish long-term projects and partnerships by expanding upon an international network of users. This network will, in turn, fuel the project's evolution through its users' creativity, specific communications needs and emergent business opportunities they may wish to develop.
Partners involved in HelloWorld! are therefore invited to work alongside the SAT's development team to develop and optimize the program's capabilities. Our team is available to guide you through the software installation and network configuration and will be able to provide technical support tailored to your specific needs.
Project ObjectiveThe main objective is to connect a minimum of six cities around the world with the Scenic software developed in the PropulseArt project.
Who can participate ?
- Every one interested in the project are more than welcome
- Art and culture organization, venues and events
- Artists in art and technology
- Research lab oriented on audio and video development
- Research lab oriented network development
- Free software projects
- City and related organization
- Community center
- Academic institutions
Why should we participate ?
- This project gives you the possibility to perform new kinds of events and realize projects between two or more locations using a telepresence system.
- This is a good opportunity to develop partnerships with other cities and countries.
- To establish visibility and recognition for your technological leadership and artistic vision.
- To be part of an international network of leading organizations in cultural and technological fields.
- By participating, you contribute to a free software project and its development

Here an overview of the basic steps that we initiate with every HelloWorld participant:
- Step 1. : Partnership: establishing contact with partners and initial planning stages.
- Step 2. : Network Evaluation: making some initial network tests using partners' existing hardware.
- Step 3. : Network improvement: fixing any network trouble detected during the network evaluation.
- Step 4. : Acquiring and installing required hardware technologies and software
- Step 5. : Testing the setup setup (hardware and software)
- Step 6. : Testing the application
- Step 7. : Interactive presentation on how to prepare an event (from production and technical points of view)
