SMPTE Quarterly Standards Webcasts:
SMPTE Technology Committees meet four times each year (generally in March, June, September, and 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 provide facilities without charge to SMPTE. This is a major factor in SMPTE's ability to minimize the cost of Standards participation.
