Speaker

Peter Wilson began his career at 15 with an electronic and mechanical apprenticeship
and subsequently worked in TV studio engineering before joining Sony Broadcast.
He moved into HDTV in the mid-’80s, working on high definition (HD) productions,
including the very first feature movie shot in HD, and eventually (for Sony Europe) setting up
Europe’s first HD-to-35mm film-out facility using electron beam recording technology.
In 1998, he helped to organize the technical facilities for the first digital cinema demonstration
at IBC Brighton and today, as a founding director of the European Digital Cinema Forum (EDCF),
he continues to focus on digital cinema interoperability.
During his time at Snell & Wilcox, he earned a Technical Emmy for work on HD upconversion.
Through HDDC, he now provides training in HDTV, UHDTV, and digital cinema matters.
He is a SMPTE Fellow, director of the EDCF and Event Cinema Association (ECA).

He stepped in at short notice to give a very dynamic seminar on HDR with John Watkinson
at the HPA Tech Retreat UK in July this year .
