NY Section's Own Mark Schubin Presents
"Six Centuries of Opera and Media Technology in New York"
Electronic home entertainment was invented in New York City for opera; so were headphones. The first compatible-color television program seen at home was opera in New York; so was the first bootleg recording. New York's media technologies for opera date back to the 16th century and in the 21st century include dynamic video warping with depth-plane selection and multi-language live cinema transmissions to all seven continents (first described in a New York newspaper in 1877). A 200-ton music synthesizer broadcasting opera music in New York in 1907? An opera lighting dimmer in 1638? Opera for military communications tests? It may be difficult to believe, but it’s true! Join us for a special SMPTE New York Section National Opera Week event, with Mr. Mark Schubin, esteemed Engineer and Explainer.
