CEBU CITY -- Filipinos here and abroad can witness Sunday's Sinulog grand parade in real time at www.sunstar.com.ph.
The Sun.Star website's live streaming points are from the grandstand at the Cebu City Sports Center, at the Sunburst Fried Chicken Restaurant along Mango Avenue with Radisson Blu, and along the parade route.
Smart Communications Inc., Sun.Star's official provider for its wired and wireless connection for the live streaming, has granted the Sun.Star website team the use of the LTE or Long Term Evolution, a mobile technology that is capable of speeds of up to 100 mbps, for "super-fast uploading of high resolution photos and high-definition videos."
A partnership between Sun.Star Publishing Inc. and the Sinulog Foundation Inc., organizer of the festival activities, enabled the website team to better cover this year's celebration.
Photo and video support is being provided by Needs and Solutions, a Cebu-based professional photo and video company. It is fielding six photographers and videographers in various locations in the city to provide Sun.Star website visitors quality visuals of the Sinulog celebration.
