The SMPTE Sum-Up 5-18-24

May 19, 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:

The Rocky Mountain Section held a meeting on artificial intelligence this week! NStarX hosted a lively interactive conversation on how AI affects media, as well as the ethics of using different AI tools. The meeting was hosted by NStarX CTO, Ganesh Sharma Tyagali, who has over 20 years of experience in the field of AI and engineering. It was a truly educational event!

SMPTE New York held their annual review of NAB this week. Moderated by Jeffrey Cohen, this panel discussion and slide show covered all the pressing events and tech showcased at NAB. The review gave those unable to attend NAB a chance to be part of the experience, which is always a welcome endeavor.

SMPTE UK’s Media Technology Conference also occurred this week! Part of the Media Production and Technology Show, this conference is always one of the most anticipated media events in the UK. The event was attended by some of the biggest names in the industry. This two-day conference was a tremendous success, and a lot of fun since SMPTE UK knows how to throw an event.

In RIS news, the Camera and Lens Metadata committee, spearheaded by Jim Helman and Snehal Patel under the SMPTE Rapid Industry Solutions, On-Set Virtual Production program (RIS-OSVP) made significant strides with a new interoperability study. This week, David Stump, ASC and Phil Holland conducted a camera and lens measurement test at the Academy's Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study to test and validate the optical model for accurately determining the circle of confusion and the near and far focus planes.

SMPTE Washington DC is excited to announce that Bits by the Bay is finally returning after their long hiatus! In partnership with SBE Chapter 37, and hosted by National Geographic, this event will feature three separate talks on May 22. The live event is open to 50 people, but you can also attend this event virtually! Register now!

Call for Papers for the 2024 Media Technology Summit is open! Original, unpublished manuscripts aligning these goals will undergo multi-peer review when submitted as abstracts. Abstracts should fall within the range of 300 to 400 words and will be accepted from now till May 30. The conference program committee will notify authors of decisions by June 30.
