    Comment on Document

    Every SC member can comment on a document at any time of the document development process. This is regardless of your status as an O-Member or a P-Member. There is no limited to the number of comments you can submit. Your comments will be counted as FCD Ballot Comments if you submit them during an FCD Ballot. This is also independent from your status as either O-Member or a P-Member. All comments received after the FCD ballot completed are counted as Late Comments.

    Currently, in the SMPTE SKN, all comments are submitted by email to the TC chair. The TC chairs will collect the comments, add them to a comment resolution spreadsheet[1] and distributes the spreadsheet to the chair(s) of the sub group working on the document you are commenting on. The below provisions give guidance on how to comment.

    Send an email with your comment(s) to the TC Chairs (e.g. 10E-chair@smpte.org), including the following (see example after instructions):

    • The name of the Document Ballot you are commenting on, including the full document name
    • Each comment should be individually resolvable
    • For multiple comments, each comment should be clearly enumerated (1, 2, 3, etc.)
    • Each Comment must be provided with:
      • Subject
      • Summary of Comment
      • Location: Section/Page/Line/Item(Figure/Paragraph/Table) Details
      • Category (Editorial/Substantive)å
      • Proposed Solution

     

    Example:

    1. LPM flags
    • Summary: Bit 4, Bit 3, Bit 2, or Bit 1 is reserved -- does this mean that one of these bits is reserved or that all of these are reserved?
    • Document: 10E-RDD-58-Live-Production-Metadata-2020-10-20.docx
    • Location: Section 4, Table 3
    • Category: Editorial
    • Proposed Solution: Bit 4, Bit 3, Bit 2, and Bit 1 are reserved and are set to 0.
