First Time Ever: Underwater 4K Resolution Broadcasting with a Smartphone & HDBaseT
|By Business Wire
|September 3, 2014 09:53 AM EDT
On September 12, 2014, the first ever 4K video captured underwater by a
smartphone will be broadcast to more than half-a-million viewers live,
thanks to HDBaseT technology. The operation will involve more than 200
divers, instructors, professional photographers and production crew, for
a 20-m dive along a shipwreck in the Red Sea, Eilat, Israel. With the
help of HDBaseT, the unique diving event will be broadcast live on
YouTube and potentially allow millions of viewers around the world to
take part of it, and as such set a new Guinness World Record of the
“Most Viewers of a Live Shipwreck Dive.”
The dive will take place during the 10th anniversary
celebrations of the annual “Eilat Red Sea International Underwater Photo
Competition.” The dive will be photographed by two high-definition
Panasonic cameras (and distributed by Satlink), and also by a 4K-enabled
smartphone. To deliver the live feed from the smartphone to the surface,
an HDBaseT transmitter will be connected to a receiver over a simple LAN
cable to be uploaded live on YouTube. No other solution in the market
today can transmit 4K video transmissions over the long distances
required for underwater broadcasting.
The YouTube broadcasting is essential to break the record of the “Most
Viewers of a Live Shipwreck Dive,” as there are no limits on the
concomitant number of viewers. Anyone with a computer or smartphone
connected to the Internet will be able to experience this dive.
To be part of this historical moment, log into www.eilatredsea.com
on September 12th, at 9:30 am GMT (4:30 am EST,
1:30 am PST, 7:30 pm Sydney NSW.) Preparations will start 30
the tenets of HDBaseT is the flexibility and ease of use it allows. This
dive is one more example of the versatility of the technology, as it can
support a very unusual broadcast – underwater, live 4K transmission. If
until now we promised new heights with HDBaseT, we can now also add new
depths to the equation. I urge everyone to join us on September 12th
for this historical moment.”
Micha Risling, Chair of the HDBaseT
Alliance’s Marketing Committee
“By breaking the boundaries of technological innovation, we are leading
a revolution in the field of real world, live diving and media. The
event will also be broadcast live during the IBC Conference, in
Amsterdam, in the Israeli pavilion.”
David Pilosof, Producer,
Eilat Red Sea International Underwater Photo Competition
The HDBASET SOLUTION
to broadcast through YouTube, the dive will be photographed through a
4K-enabled smartphone, connected with an MHL cable, which in turn will
connect to an underwater HDBaseT transmitter. The transmitter will
connect to an HDBaseT receiver placed on the surface of the sea through
a long regular category cable, and uploaded to YouTube.
The high-definition Panasonic cameras will transmit through special
high-definition cables to the surface, then to shore, where the content
will be transmitted through a satellite link thanks to Satlink.
About the Eilat Red Sea International
Underwater Photo Competition
In its 10th
year, the Competition takes place this year on September 7-13, in Eilat,
Israel. Unlike other similar competitions around the world, this is a
“live” and real time event, where photographers do their work on the
spot without the option of editing or improving their images, and must
rely on their skills, equipment, landscape and marine environmental
conditions during shooting. The Competition is attended by first-class
and award-winning photographers from around the world, who compete in
several categories: amateurs, fashion under the water, macro shots, wide
angle shots, and more.
The competition is sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of
Tourism, the Ministry of Development for the Galilee and the Negev,
Eilat municipality, scuba diving organizations, Eilat’s scuba diving
clubs and international sponsors. See more at www.eilatredsea.com.

DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
