Gateway Broadband in association with New Media Producer Robert King to telecast from Annual "Night of 100 Stars" Oscar Celebrity gala, at the Beverly Hills Hotel using MPEG-4
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 28, 2004--Oscar night is a tradition that in many ways has remained unchanged over the last several decades. While the stars are decked out in their finest, and VIPs from around the globe vie for a spot at the hottest parties, the rest of the world gathers around the TV to look on with envy. Except this year, many will log in rather than tuning in.
This year, a group of celebrities, producers and technical gurus will gather at what is arguably Hollywood's hottest Oscar party:
Included among the night's activities are streaming web casts, broadcast live from wireless web cameras on the red carpet and HD
Naturally making all of these pieces work smoothly together requires a firm grasp of the technologies involved and some of the very latest equipment from prominent computer, telecommunications and video equipment producers. Speedera Networks, a leading provider of distributed application and content delivery services, is providing the QuickTime servers to stream the event over the Internet. Speedera is the same company that is delivering NASA's Mars Rover Web Site as well the Web site for Fox Broadcasting's American Idol phenomenon and its flagship site www.fox.com. In addition, the group will use several JVC cameras including the JVC JY-HD10U, the world's first professional hand-held camcorder with full HD recording
"We have exclusive access to some exciting pre-release technology for this project," said HEURIS President Brian Quandt. "We've selected several cameras from JVC including HD cameras and new cameras with web-streaming capabilities built right in. My job is to ensure that whether you're talking about low bandwidth video for streaming or very high resolution video for HD transmission, the video looks as ravishingly beautiful as the content."
Norby Walters, Event Creator, says "This is an opportunity for fans for all over the world to share in what was otherwise a highly exclusive event."
