SMPTE Standards Community Members attending the June 2017 TC Meetings at SMG in Shanghai, China

SMPTE has more than 100 Technical Committees (TC's) and other groups working virtually on a myriad of technical topics to create, approve, revise and remove Standards for the industry. Each year, usually quarterly, the Standards Community meets in week-long TC Meetings to report on progress and to move forward with Standards work that is more easily accomplished in face-to-face meetings. 

The Standards Quarlery Report summarizes the current progress of SMPTE committees that are working to create, approve, revise, and remove standards for the industry.

The report is helpful for: 

  • Members who participate actively in the Standards Community, and need a quick reference source.
  • Members who participate and were unable to attend a particular meeting.
  • Members who follow what is happening in the Standards Community to identify key issues.
  • Members and non-members who have no idea what is taking place in the Standards Community and would like to learn more.

Please let us know what you think, and forward any suggestions for improvement to Howard Lukk
