On November 10-11, 2007, CineGrid streamed 4K uncompressed and compressed live video from Kyoto to Stockholm. This was the world’s first 4K
uncompressed transmission and the first 4K live streaming over both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The Kyoto Prize ceremony was held at the Kyoto International
Conference Hall and streams were sent to KTH in Stockholm.
Two paths were setup, one primary and one backup:
• Primary: Kyoto-Tokyo-JGN2-StarLight-IRNC-Netherlight-SURFnet/NORDUnet-Stockholm-KTH
• Backup: Kyoto-Tokyo-JGN2-StarLight-CESNET-Prague-CESNET-Netherlight-SURFnet/NORDUnet-Stockholm-KTH
