USCD Calit2 "Project Greenlight" wins CENIC award for Experimental/Developental Applications

Experimental/Developmental Applications: Project GreenLight

According to The Climate Group's Smart 2020 report released in June of last year, the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry's carbon footprint is equal to that of the airline industry. However, wise application of ICT across all sectors could create a reduction in our overall carbon footprint by as much as five times the ICT industry's own footprint. Such news sounds a call to action for everyone, but for researchers at Calit2, it's also a unique call to innovation. They have initiatedProject GreenLight to discover creative ways to ensure that the next generation of data centers supports a sustainable lifestyle and that the research sectors that use them are aware of the issues surrounding carbon-thrifty computing.

USC SCA "Alternate Endings" wins CENIC award for Educational Applications

Educational Applications: Alternate Endings

On September 15, 2008 as part of a showcase of high-bandwidth demonstrations using CalREN's experimental and high-performance networking tiers, an audience in the highly networked Atkinson Hall on the UC San Diego campus was treated to the remote premiere of Alternate Endings, a high-definition comedy-mystery movie that allows its audience to choose the direction of the plot through one of 16 separate paths. The movie itself, streamed from the Trojan Vision television studios in the Robert Zemeckis Center for Digital Arts, was merged at the various decision points with remote hosts located at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, and sent via CENIC's CalREN to the audience waiting 120 miles away in Atkinson Hall.
