Success in the first Japan-Europe Remote Jazz Jam Session Using Uncompressed HDTV Imagery and Internet Metronome

WIDE Project, on September 21 succeeded in an experiment to perform a remote jazz jam session between Japan and Europe linking an event site at EXPO 2005 Aichi and SARA in Amsterdam, the Netherlands using uncompressed HDTV video imagery. The jazz session incorporated one of the research themes of the next generation Internet, Light Path, and was conducted with the cooperation of numerous global research and development networks including IEEAF, PNW Gigapop, CA*net4, MANLAN and SURFnet. Provisioned Light Paths were established between Japan and Europe and were used to transmit the uncompressed HDTV video streams. These extremely high-quality video images were used to present the live performance of jazz musicians at the EXPO Dome and the Netherlands.
