The infrastructure we use to deliver content is in transition from a traditional point-to-point Serial Digital Interface (SDI) based infrastructure to an Internet Protocol (IP) infrastructure, mandating new workflows and solutions. This clash in domains, from video engineers’ comfort with SDI to network engineers’ familiarity with IP, will require a bridge to foster collaboration between broadcast engineers and IT experts to troubleshoot issues in this new hybrid SDI/IP environment.
SMPTE San Francisco Section, in participation with the SMPTE Student Chapter of DeAnza College, presents a SMPTE/Media Forward event.
Industry expert, Steve Lampen, presents "The Road Not Taken" on the topic of finding jobs in the future of the film/TV/professional media industry.
In addition to SMPTE members, we invite students, educators, members from Audio Engineering Society and other industry organizations to join us for this event.
