AKIBA TV: Test HD TV !!! It’s your turn now!
Akihabara News has been offering videos to download for almost 3 years now, and we recently formalized this matter in Akiba TV where you get flash videos and formats adapted to the iPOD and PSP. 2 new categories will appear on January 2nd, Akiba TV and PSP news, and our gratitude goes out to A.D. from Sony Connect. We tested the RSS feed of PSP news and the success was instant, so this feed will be available to everybody soon, and besides the PSP newsin images you’ll also have the video version (still on the RSS feed).
But we’re not stopping there, and we would like to offer HD videos (720 or 1080), and here’s the first test with a video of Nihon Car & Bike. It’s 2 minutes long in 720p MPEG and weighs in at 280MB. these videos are available in torrent at this moment, so here’s the file to use:
The goal is to see whether my desktops at the office and Totoro’s PC’s at home can take it. If you have some disc space or bandwidth available, ot if you have any ideas on how to improve things, don’t hesitate to get in touch, k? Also, if a company is interested in this project, we would be very happy to mention their logo and details in the videos.
If this test has positive results, the first HD video from Akiba will be online on Janury 11th with some very exclusive news… you want a clue? It’s from Sanyo and it’s going to kill everything!
