We already know that a total solar eclipse show at July 22th 2009 will be one of the most-watched events in our lifetime. There were some kinds of event and trials of video transmission for the total solar eclipse. We were involved in joint research for IP network transmission experimentation of a whole sky 4K Ultra High Definition image between NAIST (Nara Institute of Science and Technology) and ABC (Asahi Broadcasting Corporation). In this paper, we propose the transmission technique based on IP network Layer 3 of the non-linear whole sky 4K Ultra High Definition image and report results of the experimentation. In this experimentation, we could achieve to transmit a liveliness of a location for occurring the total eclipse as possible in ours experiment by using the whole sky 4K as the first in the world. Finally we consider the effectiveness of our proposal.
