Motion Imaging Journal
Access to the Journal is a benefit of SMPTE membership.
Alternatively, nonmembers, individuals, and institutions that do not wish to enjoy the benefits of SMPTE membership may purchase a subscription.
With the addition of the online-only issue, the award-winning SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal is now published 10 times per year, continuing with nine print/online editions and now one online-only edition, to provide members and subscribers with even more of the exceptional content they expect from SMPTE.
Periodically published wall charts add insight into a very complex technical domain.
The Journal offers readers a view into the technical world of motion-imaging science. Each issue covers a particular topic, and past issues have focused on themes such as file-based workflow, compression, 3D, audio, distribution formats, advances in lighting, sustainability, and digital cinema. For its technical content, the achievement of purpose, and technical execution, the Journal earned a Merit Award in the Society for Technical Communication's 2017 International Summit Awards competition.
Particular issues of the Journal also include summaries of various SMPTE conference events — including the SMPTE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, the Future of Cinema Conference held annually at the NAB Show — and the Progress Report, published each September to provide an overview of the latest industry developments with a particular focus on standards community work.
