CineGrid for Digital Cinema and Beyond : 

CineGrid for Digital Cinema and Beyond Tom DeFanti Research Scientist California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology University of California, San Diego Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Computer Science University of Illinois at Chicago

The CineGrid Initiative: 

The CineGrid Initiative CineGrid is an initiative to provide media professionals access to global cyber-infrastructure capable of carrying ultra-high performance digital media using the photonic networks, middleware, transport protocols and collaboration tools originally developed for scientific research, visualization, and Grid computing. In the process, 'learn by doing,' train the next generation, and cultivate global inter-disciplinary communities to help advance the state of the art CineGrid is people, facilities, networks and a not-for-profit organization

Economic Impact of Cinema in California Major Employment from Movie Industry in California by County : 

Economic Impact of Cinema in California Major Employment from Movie Industry in California by County In 2004, more than 236 new movies were produced in the State of California. In 2005 movie production provided employment for over 245,000 Californians, with an associated payroll of more than $17 billion. Typical big movies each spend more than $60 million on production, have a long-term $200 million economic impact, create more than 900 full-time jobs, and yield $11 million in state sales taxes and income taxes when fully made in California.

Further extension likely to China, Korea, Singapore, India, New Zealand, Australia, others. Tokyo Chicago Toronto JGN2 CA*net4

CineGrid Drivers: 

CineGrid Drivers High-performance media is historically driven by three markets 1) Entertainment, media, art and culture 2) Science, medicine, education and research 3) Military, intelligence, security and police All three are in digital convergence and all need: Fast networking with similar profiles Access shared instruments, specialized computers and massive storage Collaboration tools for distributed, remote teams Robust security to protect intellectual property Upgraded systems to allow higher quality, greater speed, more distributed applications A next generation of trained professionals

CineGrid Target Applications: 

CineGrid Target Applications Store-and-forward secure content delivery Streaming secure content transmission Pre-production collaborative design andamp; planning Studio and remote production of sound and picture Digital dailies, interactive viewing andamp; mark-up Distributed post production of audio/video Digital film scanning and restoration Digital media archiving Remote calibration and quality control of audio/video Education of next generation professionals These and other CineGrid applications will challenge the engineering of networked systems at every level

DCI Digital Cinema Specification2005: 

DCI Digital Cinema Specification 2005 'DIGITAL CINEMA INITIATIVES (DCI) ANNOUNCES FINAL OVERALL SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR DIGITAL CINEMA Agreement Gives Manufacturers of Digital Projectors and Theater Equipment One Universal Standard in Creating the Next Generation of Cinemas (Hollywood, CA - July 27, 2005) Digital Cinema Initiatives, LLC (DCI) is a joint venture of Disney, Fox, Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Universal and Warner Bros. Studios. DCI's primary purpose is to establish and document voluntary specifications for an open architecture for digital cinema that ensures a uniform and high level of technical performance, reliability and quality control.' Image format: 2048x1080 (2K) and 4096x2160 (4K) Color: 12-bits/color, 4:4:4, SMPTE XYZ Frame rate: 24fps or 48fps for stereo Compression: JPEG 2000 up to maximum of 250 Mbps for distribution Encryption: AES 128 for Digital Cinema Package; SHA-2 (256bit) for Key Watermarking: invisible injection of time/screen ID in projected image

Test your existing network connection to Calit2, for example. Use IPERF several times to test UDP and TCP performance. If performance is sub-gigabit/s, use NLR and CENIC, for example, to connect to Calit2. Engineering CineGrid Example You


Create a new vlan for your local network This will bypass local firewalls, expose local switches’ capabilities, motivate new fiber/copper runs, allow fat UDP Remember, GigE is more than most campuses or businesses connect to the outside. Engineering CineGrid: 2 You


Either extend this new vlan to Calit2 or route this local vlan to a shared vlan with Calit2. This obviously takes great cooperation among the institutions and circuit owners. CineGrid is ALL about arranging cooperation. Engineering CineGrid: 3 You


Ensure all vlans support Maximum Transmission Unit (mtu) of 9216 ('jumbo frame enabled'). Ensure all physical interfaces have mtu 9216 support as well. Engineering CineGrid: 4 You


Set up at least one IP interface to the vlan. Test the end-to-end connection again with IPERF. IP interface Engineering CineGrid: 5 You

To support members’ research, CineGrid will organize network testbeds prepared to host a variety of experimental digital media projects designed to require very high bandwidth with appropriate security safeguards between a limited number of 'trusted' users and systems around the globe. CineGrid will periodically organize inter-disciplinary workshops and demonstrations to share results and identify new avenues of research. Education and training of next-generation media professionals is our explicit goal.

CineGrid NetworkingAs Prototyped by the OptIPuter Project: 

CineGrid Networking As Prototyped by the OptIPuter Project 4K JPEG2000 compressed video is 500Mb/s—peaks to a gigabit/s Uncompressed needs 6Gb/s or more Most campus networks use 10-100Mb/s lans to labs. Some have 1Gb/s. Most campus networks have 155Mb/s, 622Mb/s or 1Gb/s connections Internet connectivity is usually 10s to 100s of Mb/s Internet2 connectivity is usually 100s of Mb/s to 1Gb/s A few campuses have 10Gb/s connectivity to Internet2 and/or NLR Future connections will widely support 10Gb/s, but not today However, bandwidth is not the only issue Need to use protocols that handle the bandwidth (UDP, not TCP) It’s rude to use large-flow UDP on shared networks Firewalls are a problem; large-flows are often shut down Need fiber/copper to the end device(s) from the campus main switch So, at this point, we use virtual local area network (vlan) 'layer2' tech Arguably not scalable, but works, controllable by GMPLS MPLS has been shown to work as well (with big core routers)
