Cyberport and CineGrid Present Hong Kong's First 4K Live Streaming

Cyberport is excited to bring you the world’s most innovative motion picture communications technology – the first CineGrid 4K live streaming demonstration ever shown in Hong Kong. CineGrid co-founders are invited to give the demonstration and explain how their members can cooperate to stream very high quality digital media content “on demand” to Cyberport from different parts of the world.

Experts from NTT Network Innovation Laboratories, who are CineGrid founding members, will also demonstrate how even the live output from next generation 4K/60P digital cameras - with four times the resolution and twice the frame rate of standard HDTV - can be transmitted live over Gigabit networks in real time, at very high quality using JPEG 2000, the same compression technology used for digital cinema distribution to theatres.

CANARIE Provides High-Speed Research Network

CANARIEDoctors and researchers working to understand how cancer develops and grows have access to a new tool in their arsenal: by using the power of the CANARIE Network, they can now share their findings and access large, sophisticated data sets from other cancer research institutes around the world through the International Cancer Genome Consortium. The ability to quickly transmit these one terabyte data sets - equivalent to the contents of books made from 50,000 trees - enables Canadian cancer researchers to accelerate their research about a disease that will afflict 40% of women and 45% of men during their lifetimes.

White House Initiative to Spur Student Innovations in Broadband
