Help Keep SMPTE PDA Now A Complimentary SMPTE Member Benefit
In 2009, more than two thousand individuals registered for live SMPTE PDA Now webcasts and the archived webcast SMPTE PDA Anywhere recordings' web pages received approximately 41,000 hits. That's a lot of educational bandwidth by any measure! Each SMPTE PDA Now webcast and SMPTE PDA Anywhere recording is offered without charge to SMPTE Members. Non-members are charged $49 for each webcast or recording.
In order to keep SMPTE PDA Now and SMPTE PDA Anywhere a complimentary member value, we are seeking sponsorship from leading companies in the motion imaging industry. Through that generous support, we will be able to provide a valuable educational tool for the motion picture industry at no cost to members and low cost to non-members. These sessions provide a valuable educational benefit to each attendee. Some of the recent sessions include topics such as "Beyond HD", "Quality Control, Test and Measurement", "Producing Stereoscopic Content: What Makes Great 3D Great and What Can Go Wrong?", and "Stereoscopic Displays in the Home". All of which are crucial for people working in the motion image industry.
Depending upon sponsorship level, your company will be recognized at the beginning and end of every SPMTE PDA webcast, live or recorded. In addition, your company's sponsorship and logo will appear in the Motion Imaging Journal, SMPTE's monthly newsletter, and all ads promoting upcoming SMPTE PDA Now events. We will also place your company's logo and a link to your website on the SMPTE PDA Now web pages, including SMPTE 365, our popular social networking site.
Become a sponsor of SMPTE PDA Now and SMPTE PDA Anywhere and make a difference. For more information about SMPTE PDA sponsorships, please visit us at www.smpte.org/education/education_pdanow/pda_sponsorships or contact Joel E. Welch, SMPTE's Director of Professional Development at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Stereo sound and electronic home entertainment are two technologies invented for opera. Arguably, broadcasting, location recording, movies, and possibly even the telephone owe their existence to opera.
Today, opera productions can involve banks of computer-graphics processors, infra-red motion-capture sensors, and multiple HD projectors. Operas have been distributed live to cinemas in 3-D. They have advanced camera motion, subtitling, and streaming technologies. They have used as many as 27 cameras, have been distributed live to as many as 125 countries simultaneously, and have even utilized the facilities of the Large Hadron Collider.
Opera? Yes, opera. Join SMPTE Fellow Mark Schubin for a look into the past, present, and future of the Fandom of the Opera.

2010 NAB Digital Cinema Summit - 3D: Cinema and Home
April 10 & 11, 2010
Stereoscopic exhibition in digital cinemas is growing steadily. One of the prime business drivers in the sales of digital cinema equipment in the past year has been stereoscopic 3D movies, which has proven able to pump up box office draw per screen. Consumers are reacting positively, not only to the movie experience, but also to trials and tests conducted for such content in the home. Manufacturers have exhibited 3D home equipment and stores are now selling 3D displays. As with any new technology shift, companies must grapple with the adaptation of their production lines. All companies in the entertainment industry value chain are wondering how they can most effectively transition to support this new trend.
This year's summit, produced by SMPTE, the Entertainment Technology Center at USC, and the European Broadcasting Union will move last year's theme " 3D: Lens to Living Room" to "3D - Cinema and Home". Leading engineers will explain and demonstrate the various techniques used for packaging and distributing compressed 3D images for satellite, over-the-air, IP download, and packaged media. A comprehensive review of display technologies will reveal the benefits and shortcomings of today's stereoscopic displays, and provide a glimpse into the R&D labs now inventing the future of stereoscopic display.
In short, the 2010 Summit will educate and inform on all aspect of 3D, allowing attendees to prepare their companies and production lines for handling this emerging technology. For more information, please click here.
