EVL participated in the CineGrid International Workshop 2008 Program with presentations and panel discussions by director Jason Leigh, research assistant professor Luc Renambot, and associate director Dana Plepys.

The Workshop was hosted by the Calit2, UCSD and brought together over 150 research, industry and independent members to discuss digital media distribution, production, preservation / archival applications.

Dr. Leigh presented and overview of EVL’s research and dissemination of SAGE (Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment) middleware to a very broad number of collaborators worldwide within the CineGrid Grand Challenges: Remote Collaboration session.

Dana Plepys, acting as the CineGrid Exchange director provided an progress report on the CineGrid Exchange - a multi-site distributed repository for digital media assets in support of CineGrid member-driven testbeds.

Luc Renambot introduced Visualcasting using SAGE with 4K display by describing EVL’s and Sharp Labs’ Bandwidth Challenge experiment recently presentes at SC08 in Austin, TX - as well as EVL’s work related to the SAGE 4K DXT Player, a software solution for very high resolution content playback and distribution.
