PSNC online PSNC online en 8K HEVC live streaming from Poznan to Linz over Internet at Ars Electronica Festival 2019 New technologies of 8K streaming was presented during the Ars Electronica Festival 2019 in Linz, as a demonstration of a remote artists' live performance between Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center (Poznañ, Poland) and Deep Space 8K at Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria). It was possible by using of solutions developed within the Immersify project to support artistic activities. Mon, 16 Sep 2019 00:00 GMT PSNC at the Ars Electronica Festival 2019 in Linz After nearly 20 years, the Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center returns to the arena of the largest digital art festival in Europe - the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. Wed, 04 Sep 2019 00:00 GMT 8K interactive live streaming at TNC19 Video streaming in 8K resolution is still a big challenge. On the one hand, uncompressed data transmission requires 40-80 Gb/s of bandwidth. On the other hand, the use of codecs is often associated with poor quality or long delays. In the scope of the Immersify project PSNC decided to show that 8K streaming can be successfully performed in a lower bandwidth of 200Mbit/s, and thanks to the HEVC codec used in Immersify with a high quality and low delay of a bit more than 1 second. This allowed to perform an interactive demonstration at the TNC19 conference in Tallinn.
