Sync Solution. Muséik is the exclusive synchronizing technology for A Child's Garden of Dreams. Muséik allows the digital media to follow live tempo in real time. Please see other Knowledge Base articles to learn more about the technology. If you have not used Muséik in the past, please allow 6-8 weeks minimum for technical planning. You will not need all of this time, but it is much better to stay ahead of schedule than to be forced to rush things the week of your concert.

Video. The presenting organization is responsible for arranging projectors and display surfaces. Please consult with your local AV rental service to determine proper sizes for screens and projectors. The Show Files will only play on Mac computers; the show cannot be run with Windows machines.

Audio. There are no audio files included with this product.

Credits Roll. This product ships with an extra Show File that contains the credit roll. Your license to screen the film includes a requirement to display the credits roll at least one time as part of your presentation. We recommend running the credits during intermission or after your performance of the work; we discourage running the credits right before your performance begins.
