The 2007 CineGrid International Workshop was held December 3-5, 2007 at Calit2, UC San Diego. Participants from academia, Hollywood and the consumer electronics industry covered many aspects of digital cinema technology, including the capture, presentation, and distribution methods for 4K digital cinema (which offers four times the resolution of the most widely used high-definition TV standard).Archived webcasts of select panels and talks are now available for on-demand viewing.
