Live Microscope Streaming from USC School of Cinematic Arts

Thursday, 17 December | 13:00 PM - 14:00 PM | Room 411/412

Live high-definition images of common pond-water micro-organisms and the surfaces of some common objects streamed from a RED One camera interfaced to an optical microscope at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts in Los Angeles.

The images are captured live at 720P, 30 frames per second, up-converted to 1080i, then converted to IP for transmission to Yokohama, where the IP feed is converted to HD and projected live in the theater. While the transmission is taking place, the images are also being recorded at 4k resolution for later viewing and analysis. This demonstration illustrates how a group at a distant location can participate in a discussion about subjects under the microscope via high-speed research networks in real time. It is the first trans-Pacific demonstration of streaming live RED One camera images from a microscope.
