Meetings 2013 - 2014

Our second session of meetings reflect the feedback that we had from our first year
 and to continue our aim to provide “places for those involved with the Technology
of the moving image
(and what surrounds it) to have informal discussions”
then partake in a lecture/ discussion.

We are also, as last year, meeting “where People work” – we are grateful to the Organisations
who provide the room and also those companies who provide the funding for the refreshments
 and to support other SMPTE UK section activities.

In our London meetings we have a number of themes
– looking to the future – Of video in the home, and of Broadcast Television. 
We have a flavour of the use of IP systems in what we do – whether it is news gathering or the studio – and the SMPTE regional Seminar – a 1 day event of intensive knowledge sharing in London and Salford during February .. 
We cover the whole content chain – from Cameras through Studios to Projection and home viewing.

We also have two opportunities to look at our industries –
Firstly a viewpoint from the younger member of our industries
(with reflections from some of the industry leaders),
Then an Open mic evening where you can come and share you views with your colleagues.

Outside London we have meetings with an IBC Theme in Southampton, Salford Cambridge and Birmingham  – with further events being organised for and in the communities there.

We also are addressing those further afield and the Universities by Streaming one London
meeting over Janet the joint academic network
– so that the departments of media technology and the members of NaSTA can also
take part in our activities.

All our monthly meetings are open to all and no charge
– but SMPTE member will get details of member’s only visits and preferential booking for meetings and discounts on SMPTE and other events & conferences


We hope to see you at one or more of our meetings – and greet you and your colleagues
