    Welcome

    The UK Section serving everyone who is working with the technology of moving pictures and associated sound & metadata – creatively, practically and innovatively in any format, and on any platform.

    Prior to the pandemic, the UK Section held regular evening meetups at different locations across the country to socialise and discuss topics impacting our industry. We hope to return to this format in the future but in the meantime, there are a number of SMPTE webcasts and virtual courses to enjoy and we hope to have some virtual social events soon. We will also hold the annual Bill Lovell Memorial Lecture again as soon a we can practically meet up in person.
