2023 Media Technology Summit

The SMPTE Sum-Up

May 17, 2023

Welcome to the SMPTE Sum-Up, the weekly publication that details the recent and current events of your favorite standards development organization. This week at SMPTE:

The results are in! SMPTE sections leadership has been decided for the July 2023 – June 2024 term. New section Chairs, Secretary/Treasurers, and Managers will take office on July 1st of this year. Those who voted were automatically entered into a raffle with fabulous prizes! Kwok-Luen Lam of the Hong Kong Section won first prize, David Horowitz of the Philadelphia Section won second prize, and Michael Butler of the Hollywood Section won third prize. Thank you to everyone who ran and voted in this election cycle. SMPTE couldn’t function without each and every one of you.

SMPTE members from Toronto, Texas, Sacramento, New York, and Atlanta got to enjoy section meetings last week! These meetings covered local section activity and featured wrap-ups for NAB. For those feeling left out of the sections fun, activity this week includes an NAB debrief at SMPTE Australia and a SMPTE UK event on Cloud Native Media. More events and meetings are scheduled in June, so be sure to check the events page frequently.

For those interested in SMPTE’s educational offerings, three virtual courses kicked off last week. Imaging System Fundamentals: From Light to Lenses, Color Managed Workflows, and (HDR) Technology and Workflows for M&E all began on May 8th. If any of those courses sound appealing, don’t kick yourself for missing them. Color Managed Workflows and (HDR) Technology and Workflows for M&E will be available later in the year, along with the extremely popular class: Understanding SMPTE ST 2110.

For fans of the Motion Imaging Journal, the May issue has arrived! This month is all about compression and topics covered include multicodec streaming, AI’s role in compression, and linear versus nonlinear perception. One of the most exciting stories covered told the tale of the short film Camille, an R&D film about the benefits of virtual production for independent filmmakers. Essentially, there’s a ton of amazing stuff to enjoy in this issue and it’ll keep you busy until the next great issue comes out.

Last, but certainly not least, SMPTE’s Media Technology Summit’s booth selection call kicks off on May 24th! A lot is changing at this year’s summit, so exhibitors will want to select their booth location early so they can have their top choice. Those interested can choose from the Main Floor or the SMPTE Spectrum Showcase, which is solely dedicated to exhibitors with solutions in color management. For more information on requirements and deadlines, contact our Executive Account Manager, Anthony Catalano.

That’s it for this week’s SMPTE Sum-Up. For more information on past and current events, standards projects, and webcasts, visit our website. See you next week!
