pipeline status coverage report GPLv3 license Scenic version


Scenic is a graphical user interface made with React. Together with Scenic Core and Switcher, it forms the backbone of the Scenic suite, a telepresence software stack that allows for real-time transmission of audiovisual and arbitrary data over any IP network. Telepresence systems can be used in various artistic contexts, so that two different creative spaces can communicate with each other in real-time and present a combined performance.

Scenic is designed to be used in conjunction with Scenic Core, a Node.JS server that communicates with Scenic using Socket.IO.

Scenic is currently maintained by the Société des Arts Technologiques (SAT), a non-profit artistic entity based in Montreal, Canada.


First, launch Scenic Core with the scenic command.

Second, open Scenic in your browser (Chromium is recommended).

For optimal support of touchscreens, consider launching Chromium with --touch-events.
