A Word from the Section Chair

Dear SMPTE Florida members and friends,

Since the conversion of our sub-section to a full-fledged section of SMPTE, the excitement has been compounded meeting after meeting for the past three years. After a somewhat untimely delay due to hurricane season, we have finally scheduled our first and foremost Technical Conference, Exhibits and Holiday Event this coming December.

We are hoping that whether you're a Florida SMPTE Section member, non-member or industry professional, you will have the opportunity to spend a day with us learning from a variety of industry leaders in their field all about the SMPTE ST2110 standard and what it will mean to you.

Please join your colleagues, peers and industry leaders at this Technical Conference, Exhibit and Holiday Party featuring top-notch speakers in the Broadcast Industry. Take an in-depth look into the future with companies presenting extensive technical information from the likes of Imagine, Evertz, Grass Valley, Tektronix, Fox, CISCO, The Shore Group, Linear Acoustic, LiveU, Sony, Adobe, Ericsson and more.

In addition, join our Keynote Luncheon Speaker, Clyde Smith, Senior Vice President of New Technologies FOX Network Engineering and Operations. Tour the exhibits from over 40 key manufacturers in the industry and to start the conference off with some excitement, our traditional Holiday Dinner and Raffle will help set the stage beginning the night before at 6:30 pm, December 13th.
