As one of the developments taking us closer to the future event space, which will be built in Otakaari 2A, the Hybrid Stage Pilot has started on Harald Herlin Learning Center’s K-floor. 

With the Hybrid Stage, it is possible to organize events tailored for simultaneous on-site and online participation. Furthermore, it enables reaching a larger audience by opening local events to a global crowd. The purpose of this space is to build a digital events concept that makes use of professional audiovisual technology solutions in an efficient manner but with high quality. 

This state-of-the-art hybrid event setup has a wall of video monitors as a background, stage lighting and in terms of audio, the distributed speakers allow perfect control of sound levels throughout the space. A variety of angles for covering the event is achieved by four high-quality robotic cameras.

For who?

The Hybrid stage pilot primarily serves the Aalto University community and its extended network of partners.

A hybrid is a simultaneous on-site and online event experience.

The hybrid stage allows you to expand your audience and open up the opportunity to a global audience. The site can accommodate 50 people. (The K-floor is an open library space and cannot be closed for the event)
