SMPTE Nordic Section 2018

The Nordic Section was revived in the spring of 2018 with the initiative of SMPTE members and enthusiasts from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland.

The current board of officers consists of the following people:

  • Board Chair: Børre Sandvik, Vimond
  • Secretary/Treasurer: Eivind Sandstrand, NCE Media
  • Board Member: Ole Johan Skogheim, Mediability
  • Board Member: Stian Askeland, Electric Friends
  • Board Member: Kevin Caballero, Vimond

Our mission is to work to bring together technical expertise in the media communities throughout the Nordics.  Although the current board is based in Media City Bergen, Norway, it is our clear objective to span the region and actively include resources from other countries to develop and share expertise.

The first regular meeting for the Nordic Section will be held on June 22nd, 2018 in Media City Bergen.  This meeting will be adjacent to, and run in parallel with, other events during the new MCB Tech.18 Conference, organized by NCE Media.  We encourage members throughout the Nordics to join us in person on the 22nd, and to consider registering for the conference itself.  If you cannot travel to Bergen, but would like to join the meeting and presentation, we will provide dial-in/video conferencing details.

The next section meeting is tentatively planned for post-IBC in a location TBD.  The Section board would love to hear from members who are interested in hosting a meeting in their location.  Please contact Secretary/Treasurer Eivind Sandstrand with any suggestions!
