Why call it 5?

This striking event has been thoughtfully named after the codename Project 5. It holds different meanings for every person involved. This name evokes five years of hard work and technical preparations. Also, it celebrates five years of successful media workshops taught in Aragón, for students from all over Spain. Furthermore, 2011 marks the 5th anniversary of public mass media launching in the region ofAragón, with a public TV and radio service. And finally, this is a toast to millions of fans and followers of Violadores del Verso. The band members are MCs Kase-O, Lírico, Hate (AKA Maestro Sho Hai) and DJ R de Rumba. They are four rap performers who consider their audience as parts of themselves. “They make the fifth band member”, said one of them.

How can 5 be watched?

There will be several broadcasting options for this concert. A signal will be provided via HISPASAT Satellite, “side by side” 3D Ready format -this is independently from other viewing needs for cinema screenings that we will be providing under demand. Usually, Spanish home viewers have SENSIO 3D Processor in their devices, since the South Africa World Cup 3D experience. Stereo Sound is transmitted in AC3, but this real true experiment will make use of the DOLBY E codec in order to receive 5.1 Live audio, which does give the feeling of being present in font of the stage. The signal arrives encrypted, but it wont be DCI, something our technicians are working on. If the event happens to be broadcast over upcoming 3D TV channels, we do have the means to cater a more than proper 3D signal of the production.
