The SMPTE Sum-Up-June 16, 2023

June 16, 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:

One special feature of the journal was the personal message from Executive Director, David Grindle. Grindle wanted to thank every member of SMPTE who participated in a survey taken by XYZ University. The survey allowed members to voice their opinions and concerns about SMPTE’s messaging. Your voices are invaluable to us, so we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The newest issue of the Motion Imaging Journal is here and this one is all about immersive media! Who doesn’t want to escape to a magical world every once in a while? This issue covers topics including the architecture of immersive devices and volumetric capture techniques. Somewhat thematically, this issue is only online and is accessible on the SMPTE website.

In events news this week, the Atlanta section hosted a hands-on virtual production workshop. Members who attended had the opportunity to see on-set virtual production in action, with access to the latest tools and software the industry has to offer. The most important aspects of virtual production are the people who attend events like these. LED walls and game engines are also pretty important.

The world of SMPTE Standards also had a major event this week. The Technology Committee’s June meeting was held on the 13th in Melbourne, Australia. Open to everyone in the standards community, and now open to guests as well, the Technology Committee meeting is a two-day event where members can share updates and solutions to the industry’s biggest problems. These meetings are vital to SMPTE and the industry at large, so pop in and watch one if you can! Info on technology committees can be found here.

Last, but certainly not least, the virtual course Switching, Routing, and Wireless Essentials (CCNA2) began this week. This course teaches students how to work with routers, troubleshoot on a switched network, and develop critical thinking skills. The second of three CCNA courses, this class is needed for a CCNA certification. Other classes are available later in the year for those seeking to continue their education.

              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!
