ResearchChannel participants AARNet and ResearchChannel demonstrated the first use of live uncompressed High Definition (1920x1080/60i) video between Canberra Australia, Seattle WA and Pittsburgh at the recent SuperComputing 2004 event.

Built using “off the shelf” commodity hardware, the system, developed by ResearchChannel supports uncompressed High Definition video using advanced IP networks. The quality amazed conference attendees, who were able to interact in real time from the show floor with guests in the Canberra and Seattle studios.

Intercontinental data flows of 6gigabits per second were maintained throughout the event utilising the high bandwidth capabilities of the National LambdaRail and SXTransPORT networks.

The partnership between ResearchChannel and AARNet has spurred the development of high speed networks and enabled data transfers previously unavailable between the two continents opening a whole range of scientific and research collaborations that exploit new Internet technologies.
