NASA is set to produce its first-ever live 4K video stream from space during a session at the NAB Show in Las Vegas later this month.

The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration will co-produce the panel with Amazon Web Services and NAB to explore how advanced imaging and cloud technologies are “taking scientific research and filmmaking to the next level”.

The 4K live stream is due to see NASA astronaut Dr. Peggy Whitson speak from the International Space Station to AWS Elemental CEO and co-founder Sam Blackman, who will be at the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC).

NASA astronaut Dr. Tracy Caldwell Dyson and NASA imagery experts program manager Rodney Grubbs will also take part in a panel discussion alongside Bau Entertainment’s Bernadette McDaid, AWS Elemental’s Khawaja Shams and IBM Watson Group’s Dr. Dave McQueeney.

The NAB session, titled ‘Reaching for the Stars: Connecting to the Future with NASA and Hollywood’ will take place at 10:30 am on Wednesday, April 26 in room N249 of the LVCC. The NAB Show will run from April 22 – 27.
