TSC 2012: 14-15 April 2012 · Las Vegas · Info:


White Plains, NY, 5 December 2011 – The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education, today announced that it will hold its annual Technology Summit On Cinema (formerly DCS) at NAB 2012 on 14-15 April 2012 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The conference, which is produced by SMPTE, will focus on advances in motion and sound across cinema, including higher-frame-rate stereoscopic 3D entertainment, laser projection systems, green production techniques, alternate-content business models for theaters and updates on accessibility and digital cinema standards.

“Historically, cinema technology has often been at the forefront of innovations that later become part of the motion-imaging mainstream,” said SMPTE President Pete Ludé. “From widescreen projection and multi-channel audio to computer graphics and 3D display, you see in first in the theater, and later in your home. “This year’s Technology Summit on Cinema will provide an in-depth global view of the new wave of technologies coming soon to your local multiplex, with an eye toward how they might later affect the broader media ecosystem.”

Produced by SMPTE, the annual summit brings together the world’s leading motion-imaging researchers, scientists, practitioners, and manufacturers. In addition to these technology innovators, this year’s event will include filmmakers, movie theater operators, manufactures and other experts focused on advancing the state of the art in cinema.
