    Technology Committee Meetings & Reports

    SMPTE Standards Community Participation

    Members of our standards community touring Whistling Woods Film School at the March 2020 Technology Committee meetings in Mumbai, India.

    SMPTE has many Technology Committees (TC's) and other groups working virtually on a myriad of technical topics to create, approve, revise and remove Standards for the industry.

    Each year, usually quarterly, the Standards Community meets in week-long TC Meetings to report on progress and to move forward with Standards work that is more easily accomplished in face-to-face meetings. 

    Anyone interested in the standards process is welcome to join the SMPTE Standards Community. SMPTE Technology Committees are open to professionals interested in or affected by, SMPTE Standards.

    Just add Standards Participation to your cart in the SMPTE Store, and get involved!

    Standards Quarterly Report

    The Standards Quarterly Report summarizes the current progress of SMPTE Technology Committees that are working to create, approve, revise, and remove standards for the industry.

    The report is helpful for:

    • Members who participate actively in the Standards Community, and need a quick reference source.
    • Members who participate and were unable to attend a particular TC meeting.
    • Members who follow what is happening in the Standards Community to identify key issues.
    • Members and non-members who have no idea what is taking place in the Standards Community and would like to learn more.

    Please let us know what you think, and forward any suggestions for improvement to the Director of Standards Development.
