Meetings are at the heart of what SMPTE is and so SMPTE UK section holds meetings
wherever there are cluster of members as well as the Monthly meetings in London-  
with a theme of "meeting where members work".

 The UK covers all aspects of media technology – and thus the speakers 
we invite cover a wide range of subjects – but always with a very practical approach.

Evening meetings are just that – a time for people across our industries to come together and meet over
"ample refreshments" - and then hear and discuss with speakers matters of importance.
Most of our meetings start at about 18h15 with a gathering over Ample refreshments
– so that we can meet each other
– particularly   to introduce those new to our industries
and we then move to the formal business at 19h00- 
we hope to be winding up discussion just after 20h30.

In 2017 we also list the meetings of the  Student Chapters - and key NaSTA meetings
- if you want to attend these you need to contact the oragansiser.

SMPTE UK section has two continuing themes during this yaer -

  • Interoperable Mastering Format (IMF) ST2067
    - particularly the work being done by DPP and SMPTE for a broadcast specification


  • ST2110 Studio Video over IP - a suite of standards
    - and the surrounding standards of PTP -ST2059 and AES67, and the NMOS specifications


Those Section meetings  open for registration have hyperlinks to their own page
where you can read the synopsis and further details. Please Register Promptly
