Fractional frame rates - you might love them or hate them. Either way, they are destined to be with us long into the future. This SMPTE Educational Webcast expands on an informative, amusing and educational presentation given at this year's HPA Tech Retreat. It will explore the impact of nudging the frame rate of US video by 1 part in 1000 on systems, devices, and applications that permeate our industry. As we look to the future and UHD with high frame rates, the webcast will also cover the technology and operational areas needing attention when multiple frame rates with multiple timecode styles become more prevalent in the working environment.
