2012 Technology Summit On Cinema: Advances in Image and Sound

(Co-Produced by SMPTE for the NAB Show 2012)

 

Cinema Technology has historically been in the forefront of motion imaging invention.  Over the years, revolutionary new technologies were first tested and proven in the movie theater, only later to become mainstream in television broadcast or gaming.  Examples include the introduction of sound, color, widescreen, stereo, computer graphics, and – more recently – 3D.  The 2012 Technology Summit for Cinema:  Advances in Image and Sound, co-produced by SMPTE at the 2012 NAB Show, will provide an in-depth global view of the new wave of technology coming soon to your local multiplex, with an eye toward how it might later affect the broader media ecosystem.  Hot topics this year will include the latest work on higher-frame-rate stereoscopic 3D: movies have been produced at 24 frames per second for more than half a century, but now prominent filmmakers have started producing new 3D releases in 48 or 60 fps.  The TSC will include demonstrations of the improved image quality, and discussion of technical and business issues for deployment.  Other topics include the challenges of “going green” in production,  the advent of laser projection systems, new business models for alternate content to the theater and progress on making movie content accessible to hearing and visually impaired audience members, all while making it inaccessible to pirates.  You’ll hear from technology innovators, filmmakers, movie theater operators, manufactures and other experts encompassing the many perspectives of advancing the state of the art in cinema.
