Media in the Cloud: Ontology Guide


Welcome to the new 2020 Greater Chicago Section!

Join Our Friends List

This year, The Greater Chicago SMPTE Chapter will be re-establishing itself as a focal point of industry knowledge and personnel in not just Chicago but the greater Midwest area. Members can look forward to engaging meetings, all the resources SMPTE has to offer as well as good ole' fashioned networking, which I'm sure we can all agree is fundamental to this ever-changing business.

This is a great time to reach out and engage with leadership. There is never anything wrong with sending a quick e-mail to say hey and see what's going on. The Board Members are looking forward to having a lot of great things on the horizon, so stay tuned and stay well.

Coming soon we will be hosting virtual events and virtual social gatherings. Please check back often for updates. Want to receive our email notifications?
