Sensory devices and communications protocols like OSC, MIDI, DMX, etc.
You can look at remote kvm control software. TeamViewer is one that is used widely and works well.
Remote kvm (keyboard, video, mouse) is also built in to some operating systems. Often called ‘screen sharing’.
I have used the built in option in Mac OS to run remote Isadora patches. I have also used the teamviewer software to work with clients remotely. It is also called Remote Desktop.
The only issue really is latency and dropping network connectivity. At this time with an exponential increase in network usage due to home isolation/working from home all over the world, latency and network quality is an issue. You will also want to ensure that your network ports are secure from potential hacking, which is also increasing atm.
There are a number of different software that offer these Remote Desktop options.

Triggering Isadora/QLab/ETC lighting consoles with MSC (MIDI Show Control)https://community.troikatronix.com/topic/5543/midi-show-control-scene-navigation-cueing-systemBecause I don't have one, can someone who does have a Reddit account post the two links above on the reddit thread for me?
We are ready to enter the public beta phase of our OpenNI Tracker plugin, which allows Isadora to capture a depth map image, and to do body/skeleton tracking, using a Kinect v1, Orbbec Astra, or Intel Realsense D435.
Visit the OpenNI Tracker plugin page to download the plugins for your platform. (Note: because there are separate downloads for Macintosh and Windows, you cannot use the download arrow at the right! Instead use the links provided in the description.)
Like all Isadora actors, this plugin has rollover help to introduce you to the various parameters. But to give you a solid introduction to this exciting new plugin, we have prepared an Isadora file that takes you through the basics so that you can start using bodies to perform interactive control right away. Please visit the OpenNI Tracker Tutorial page to download the tutorial file and its accompanying media.
We also have a written tutorial ready. We'll get that published in the next 24 hours.
We're announcing this as a public beta because there are still a few lingering reports of crashes that we have not yet been able to reproduce consistently. If you have crashes, please report them using our ticket system instead of posting that information here.
Please feel free to offer your experience, reactions and feedback here.
Best Wishes,Mark + The TroikaTronix Team
