It is for those people who need to see Earth orbit in amazingly real high difference, here is a chance for them. You will be able to watch the first 4K live-stream from the ISS (International Space Station) 250 miles above the Earth on Wednesday, 26th April 2017. The Space Commander Peggy Whitson will talk and it would be a part of a panel named “Reaching for the Stars” as connecting to the Future with Hollywood and NASA. Point to be noted that we have already experienced 4K video from the space, but now it will be available live for the first time. So, you just need a 4k capable monitor or television to experience the full resolution, but there might be considerably low-resolution streams on NASA Television, Facebook page of the agency and on its website.
The panel headed by the Hollywood Reporter, Carolyn Giadina and it will be focused on advanced imaging & cloud technologies in order to discover how they are enhancing scientific research & filmmaking. There are additional speakers including astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson from NASA, imagery expert of NASA Rodney Grubbs and Dave McQueeny from Watson Group of IBM. The 4K UHD encoder and similar capability video camera (the RED Epic Dragon) was delivered for this specific purpose by a Japanese cargo craft in the month of December 2016. The Space Commander Whitson will talk with the CEO of AWS Elemental, Sam Blackman as this company certified the encoder. It is expected that live-stream will take place on Wednesday, 26th April 2017 at 1:30 PM, EDT.
