70 Billion Pixels Budapest: 360 degree panorama image

"The observation tower of János–hegy [the Elizabeth Lookout on János Hill is], the highest vantage point of Budapest with a 360 degree panorama, was an obvious location. It also allowed us to take on previous world records in both the 'highest definition image' and the 'largest spherical panorama' category. When contacted, the Council of District XII informed us on the upcoming anniversary of the tower. We agreed to cooperate in commemorating the September 2010 event by setting up new world records–give them our best shot if you please. ."

NT Live: What is it? How does it work?

"NT Live is an exciting new initiative to broadcast live performances of plays onto cinema screens worldwide. The four show pilot season will launch with Phèdre, with Helen Mirren, Margaret Tyzack and Dominic Cooper.

On 25 June the performance of Phèdre will be filmed in high definition and broadcast via satellite to approximately 65 cinemas and arts centres, reaching a widespread audience live across the UK. Tickets will cost £10. Over 200 venues around the world will also screen the production"
(National Theatre, UK)

[This appears to mark a logical evolution in digital cinema. Once unencumbered by the limitations of celluloid projection and enabled by the possibilities of digital–only projection cinemas can start to seriously revise their operation. In this case they are able to work as large–scale televisions presenting live broadcast content. One wonders how long it will take for this infrastructure to be redeployed as two–way receiving and transmitting collective performance spaces.]
