KEXP & ResearchChannel at Super Computing 07


This week, KEXP is participating in the Super Computing 07 conference in Reno.

We are working with our sister organization, ResearchChannel (RC), a television channel administered by the University of Washington, is a consortium of several universities and research institutions, all who contribute programs for broadcast and streaming online. RC is a nonprofit media and technology organization that connects a global audience of millions to research — and for this event will be connecting to a live Reno, Nevada, and even a global audience.

ResearchChannel will broadcast live performances by local bands Math and Physics Club, The Purrs, The Cops and Siberian from the studios of Seattle radio station KEXP-FM to our SC07 booth in Reno. They’ll use iHDTV™, capable of streaming uncompressed 1080i high-definition video, integrated into OptIPortal display technology for an amazing 16-megapixel output across a matrix of eight 46-inch 1080p LCD monitors. Advanced high-capacity transport facilities at the Pacific Wave international peering exchange and Pacific Northwest Gigapop connect our collaborators and provide the highest-speed networking to maximize performance.

SC07 participants will have the opportunity to interact with the bands as well as compelling speakers from the science and research community who will host live presentations from Seattle and other locations that will also be broadcast to the audience in Reno. KEXP’s Tom Mara will be in Reno to converse with the bands across the network and before a live audience.

    I welcome the attempt at this, but there was a lot of glitching even on the SD feed. The HD feed was unwatchable. Eventually I gave up and reverted to the audio-only feed. And I’m pretty sure I have the bandwidth to support this.

    Looking forward to glitch-free HD video over the network…
