NAB Show’s Technology Summit on Cinema: Advances in Image and Sound

Cinema technology has historically been in the forefront of motion imaging and sound invention.  Revolutionary new technologies tested and proven in the movie theater have later become main stream in television broadcast or gaming.  Examples include the introduction of sound, color, widescreen, stereo, computer graphics, and – more recently – 3D.  The 2013 Technology Summit on Cinema: Advances in Image and Sound (TSC), produced by SMPTE, will provide an in-depth global view of the new wave of technology coming to your local multiplex, with an eye toward how it might later affect the broader media ecosystem.

Movies have been produced at 24 frames per second for nearly a century, but now prominent filmmakers have started producing new 3D releases in 48 and soon 60 fps.  We will cover this hot topic with discussion of the latest thinking in higher frame rate scientific, technical and business issues, HFR deployment across the production, post production and exhibition ecosystem as well as demonstrations.   Other TSC topics include:  perceptual requirements for higher quality image and sound, next generation technologies for exhibition, business models for alternative content, and an update on digital cinema roll-out worldwide.

You’ll hear from technology innovators, filmmakers, movie theater operators, manufacturers and other experts encompassing the many perspectives of advancing the state of the art in cinema.
