During the 7th Annual Global LambdaGrid Workshop held in Prague on 17-18 September 2007, 4K digital content was streamed 'on demand' and in real time from seven playback servers in Japan, Europe and North America to audiences at Charles University in central Prague, and to CinePOST, a cinema post-production facility within Barrandov Studios, one of the largest and oldest film production centers in Europe.

Playback nodes were located at: Keio (Japan); University of Amsterdam and SARA (Netherlands); Calit2/University of California, San Diego; Electronic Visualization Laboratory/University of Illinois at Chicago; National Center for Supercomputing Applications/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; School of Cinematic Arts/University of Southern California; and University of Washington/ResearchChannel.

CineGrid demonstrated a prototype workflow for remote color grading of digital rushes from a 4K digital camera shoot in Prague to a specialized rendering processor located nearly 10,000 km away in San Diego, and a 4K color correction system in Prague operated by a colorist working 7000 km away in Toronto.
