Update from Standards Vice President Bruce Devlin

Since my August 2020 writeup on Compression, there has been a lot of activity in this area. The founder of the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG), Leonardo Chiarglioni, has publicly written his displeasure with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and has founded a nonprofit organization called the Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI). The concepts put forward in many online postings and press releases are interesting and will, no doubt, produce some surprising technical results in the months and years to come. The work of the former MPEG committee continues, and we should not forget that within ISO, the Joint Picture Experts Group (JPEG) group also continues to push back the boundaries of compression technology with their work on holographic and point-cloud compression technologies. As an active member of SMPTE (I know because you are reading this column!), I am sure you are aware of all the benefits of SMPTE membership. From the excellent peer-reviewed content in this publication to the many educational offerings, standards work, and the local Section community of experts, there is a lot to gain as a SMPTE member.
