Akihabara Visit on Video Part I
It’s been almost 2 years since we made a little guide on the good ideas and traps to avoid when meking a Geeky visit to Akihabara. Technology has come to our rescue and here is a HDTV version of this small guide! That’s right, we will do the whole of Akihabara in HD, but it might take a while (3 months is our best guess) before the project is completed. Later we’ll be offering maps with the areas we shot on video, so people who like to visit will have something in their hands when they hit the street.
But before we start, we have to point out the following things:
1) We’re not professional video guys, and I must admit that standing in front of the camera is not that easy. The video was shot during 5 hours with about 10000 takes for every 30 seconds of video, and I look quite flushed at the end as a consequence.
2) We’re working with other people for the HD videos of Akihabara News, and this is basically a test phase for this new platform, so we really need to see whether the servers can withstand the load. Please help us to download as much as possible, especially in the real HD version of the video and not so much on the Flash version. Here’s a small message I got from the people that are taking care of the video server:
“Good night (to you anyway) and send over a million people to kill all the stats (that I will provide to you)! If you take up less than 10Mb/s, you will be punished!)”
So let the message be clear… fire up those servers!
So here’s our first video on akiba, and we stayed in the JR station of akiba where we explain you what you can do in that area! Enjoy… and enjoy downloading!
