Date & Time:
Wed Apr 27th 2011, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Wheeler Auditorium, UC Berkeley and Experimental Theater, UC San Diego, 7 pm, free!

Telematic music is live performance between musicians in different geographical locations using high speed/high bandwidth internet connections. This special Net Works concert features virtuoso ensemble playing by prominent artists in jazz and improvised/experimental music — pianist Myra Melford in Berkeley with bassist Mark Dresser and trombonist Michael Dessen in San Diego — in an exciting evening of co-located performance conceived for the medium.

Real time musical interaction over the internet is a growing phenomenon, and this experienced group has been pushing the boundaries of the art to explore the performance of intricate, tightly integrated music from distant locations. Their collaboration is enabled by CNMAT’s advanced research in live, net-based audio and video transmission.

This concert is supported by the UC Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) in collaboration with the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT), Cal Performances and CineGrid member, Meyer Sound.

CineGrid Receives 2011 CENIC Innovations in Networking Award

The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives (CENIC), which operates CalREN, the California Research and Education Network, honored CineGrid, the international research consortium for networked media arts, with a CENIC 2011 Innovations in Networking Award at its annual conference in Irvine, Calif.

March 8, 2011 — La Mirada, CA — CineGrid was recognized for the innovative use and expansion of high-performance networking by the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) which CineGrid_Award-5bestowed its  Innovations in Networking Awards in the Experimental/Developmental Applications category.

CENIC’s Innovations in Networking Awards are presented annually to highlight exemplary innovations that leverage ultra high-bandwidth networking, particularly where those innovations have the potential to revolutionize the ways in which instruction and research are conducted.     

The awards ceremony took place at the 2011 CENIC Annual Conference, Expanding Our Horizons <http://cenic2011.cenic.org/> , on Tuesday March 8 at the UC Irvine Student Center. Presentations given by the all the CENIC award winners on their projects followed, with Laurin Herr  describing CineGrid’s award-winning project.

The international collaborative digital and rich media organization CineGrid <http://www.cinegrid.org/> has been recognized by CENIC in the past for empowering the production, use, preservation, and exchange of very high-quality digital media over photonic networks. This year, CineGrid is being recognized for practical demonstrations of remote collaboration workflows for cinema post-production presented to an audience of nearly 100 executives at the Frank G. Wells Theatre on the Disney Studio lot in Burbank, CA.The CineGrid@Disney Demonstration on October 13, 2010 was the result of a nine-month effort involving more than 50 participants from seven CineGrid member organizations: Disney Studios, NTT Network Innovation Laboratory, Skywalker Sound, Digital Domain, UCSD/Calit2, UIC/EVL, and Pacific Interface. The challenge was to bring together several different creative workflows, linking multiple remote locations, into a single room using very high-quality media running over high-speed networks for interactive, real-time synchronized “live” remote collaboration.

Specific use cases demonstrated included: a 4K/60p telepresence virtual conference room; critical viewing of digitally restored archival film elements at 4K and 2K resolutions, streaming from a remote server; Digital Intermediate (DI) color grading; critical viewing of 3D HD stereoscopic visual effects; collaborative audio editing and mixing; and use of   SAGE OptIPortable multi-panel display wall for collaborative review of multimedia marketing materials.

The CineGrid@Disney demonstration relied on the active cooperation of five of CineGrid's network members – CENIC/CalREN, JGN2, GEMnet, PNWGP, and StarLight – who provided 1GigE and 10GigE connectivity to the geographically separated participants; in addition, the City of Burbank provided critical last-mile connectivity at 10Gb/s from Disney to CalREN, the CineGrid hub in the Los Angeles region.

CineGrid Takes Digital Cinema Into Next Dimension

January 20, 2011

By Tiffany Fox

cinegrid larry
Larry Smarr, director of Calit2, remarked that high-definition, real-time collaboration is possible at Calit2 because "we have made the necessary human and technical resource investments to drive applications of the optical network revolution."

For the members of CineGrid, who assembled recently at the University of California, San Diego, for their fifth annual conference, experimenting with “extreme” digital media has increasingly become a finely tuned balance of “3D in support of collaboration, and collaboration in support of 3D.”

“Interest in 3D is being driven by scientific visualization, by consumer electronics and by digital cinema,” remarked Laurin Herr, president of the consulting company Pacific Interface, Inc., and one of the founders of CineGrid, the non-profit international membership organization.

“This year, we put together a rather extensive program looking at all these issues, right down to the first principles about how 3D stereo is perceived by human beings. There was also some really impressive work being done this year in our second main thrust, remote collaboration for cinema post-production, both 2D and 3D.”
