The science behind light, color, optics and imaging in the Media and Entertainment industry

For Technologists and Creatives alike, understanding Imaging Systems is absolutely fundamental because the underlying science relates directly to the practical considerations of everyday media workflows. This course, developed in partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), will help you better understand the imaging systems that capture and transform the visual content driving the industry. You’ll improve your ability to discuss the technical aspects of moving pictures and help your company be more effective in acquiring, optimizing, monitoring and displaying those images. Whether you are just beginning your career and need a solid foundation, or are experienced but could benefit from a refresher, SMPTE's "Imaging System Fundamentals" course helps you take a big step forward in your professional development.

  • Learn about imaging system fundamentals from the experts teaching the next generation of industry professionals
  • Gain a deeper understanding of imaging physics, photographic science, human vision and perception, image capture, display technologies and digital image processing
  • Grasp the most important laws of math and physics in relation to imaging systems, taught in an accessible way that doesn’t require college-level math and physics to understand
  • Enrich your technical knowledge and vocabulary so you can contribute more meaningfully to daily operations in your current position, or in an expanded professional role
