    Dear SMPTE Hong Kong Section Members,

    Working as a technical professional in the media industry is never easy. Media technology is moving fast. From analog to digital to IP, from tape to hard drive to the cloud, from terrestrial to IPTV to OTT.  In the transformation of technology, SMPTE always takes an important role to help the industry fixing standards and directions. It is a great honor for me to be the section chair of SMPTE Hong Kong.

    2020 is a challenging year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the whole world has been changed. Theaters closed down for months. On the other hand, the demands of OTT streams raised up dramatically. The impact to the industry is huge.  

    Many of the industry events were canceled. In order to keep us close to the technology, SMPTE headquarters is making the technology webcast free of charge to members as well as the public. Also, a 50% discount for the virtual classes.

    In Hong Kong, we are also arranging technology webinars locally. I hope we could stay close and work together to overcome this difficult time.

    Stay healthy, stay strong.

    Thank you,

    Kevin Chu
