SMPTE Technology Committees meet four times each year (generally in March, June, September, December). The September cycle is usually held in Europe, immediately following the IBC Conference & Exhibition. Other meeting cycles normally run from Monday to Friday; generally each year two meetings are held in North America, and one in Asia or Australasia.
Most meeting cycles are made possible by the generosity of a host company that provides facilities without charge to SMPTE. This is a major factor in SMPTE's ability to minimize the cost of standards participation.
The following information is provided for the information of companies considering hosting a meeting cycle. Interested companies are requested to contact SMPTE's Manager of Engineering Services Mauricio Roldan to discuss in more detail. And thank you for considering this form of support to the Society!
