It also featured the very first Live 4K Concert Event—streaming the ultra-high definition 4K experience to computers and mobile devices worldwide.

Syfy’s newest television series, The Expanse, is scheduled to begin later this year and is shot on none other than EPICDRAGON. Adaptated from the New York Times bestselling book series written by James S. A. Corey (a pseudonym for writers Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck), The Expanse is set 200 years in the future—at a time when the human race has colonized the Solar System. The series follows police detective, Joseph Miller (Thomas Jane) and ship officer, Jim Holden (Steven Strait), as they track down an heiress to an empire and uncover a vast conspiracy that threatens very survival of humanity.
RED Digital Cinema is teaming up with Dell, Intel, and Sharp to bring you the first ever 4K live streaming concert event from SXSW. Using industry-leading technology from each of the partners, viewers will be able to experience The FADERFORT in ultra high-definition from the comfort of their homes.
