The Next Century Fund – Centennial Campaign
An internationally recognized and accredited organization, SMPTE has advanced moving-imagery education and engineering across the communications, technology, media, and entertainment industries since 1916.
In 2016, SMPTE will celebrate its centennial year and, undoubtedly, the next 100 years will be very different from the first. As the industry evolves, new entrants are challenging every aspect of the media workflow, from technology tools to business models. Every step along the media chain is changing.
With this evolution, SMPTE’s role is becoming even more vital to the industry as standards continue to be fundamental to ongoing interoperability into the future. As the leader in the art, sciences, and craft of the image, sound and metadata ecosystem, SMPTE must continue to expand and enhance its three pillars of activity: Standards, Membership, and Education.
