The Visual Music Carnival is a celebration of music, visual arts and extreme sports with a direct cause. It is a fundraising event aimed to provide support to the projects of the Telecommunication Service Network for the Deaf (TSND) Incorporated. Part of the goal is to support the TSND’s public VRS station installation project in communities with a high volume of hearing impaired residents. This will be held annually in venues such as stadiums or fields upon which the stages and other structures are erected.

Video Relay Service is an internet powered service that helps deaf people call anywhere and anytime hassle free. A VRS booth comes with a V-Pad.
A V-pad is a touch screen videophone with a camera; it will be bolted in to a wall just like public pay phones. Where in there will be a sign language interpreter on standby during service hours.
To simplify, it’s a videophone with a built in interpreter that will make the calls for the deaf caller.
