What is CineGrid?

CineGrid members explore the feasibility and trade-offs of different networking approaches suitable for emerging applications of rich-media intensive forms of art, entertainment, distance learning, scientific visualization, remote collaboration and international cultural exchange. To support members’ research, CineGrid organizes network test beds prepared to host a variety of experimental digital media projects. Designed for very high bandwidth requirements, these network environments provide appropriate security safeguards between a limited numbers of “trusted” users around the globe. CineGrid periodically organizes inter-disciplinary workshops and demonstrations to share results and identify new avenues of research. Education and training of next-generation digital media professionals is an explicit goal. CineGrid activities are designed to help members foster new user communities that are eager to share their cultural, technical and human creativity with colleagues across the globe, linked by CineGrid
