April 14, 2024

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:

SMPTE Atlanta held a meeting on the basics of audio/visual preservation. This virtual meeting detailed the best practices and strategies for dealing with exabytes of data, a quantity that this writer has definitely heard of before. Safeguarding vital data is extremely important, so this meeting was a meaningful event for every media tech professional in attendance.
