Far North Living Lab Launched With World-First 2K BitTorrent Stream

Nerdlogger alerted me earlier today of a significant event in Digital Cinema. It occurred around the launch of Norway’s Far North Living Lab. The Far North Living Lab is a research lab started by the Northern Research Institute (Norut) and a selection of partners. The lab launch was held at the Aurora Kino, which plays a significant role in the digitizing of Norwegian cinema. The focus of the lab launch was the live streaming of the movie “Carved” by Jonas Rejman. The film features extreme showboarding and was shot on a RED ONE in full 2k.

The film was streamed using highly experimental technology created within the EU financed P2P-Next project, that allows for a modified BitTorrent client to stream a torrent file from ordinary BitTorrent clients. While this Video-On-Demand technology is experimental, the so-called “demo effect” is at its most extreme on a big screen. The film was streamed as a full 2k, 19mbit/s h264. The Video of the launch below;
