SMPTE members are to lead a range of sessions at this year's IBC show in Amsterdam.

On offer will be 'Laser Projectors Part 1: Seeing is Believing' and 'Laser Projectors Part 2: Is the Devil in the Details?' as part of the IBC Big Screen Experience.
Produced and chaired by Peter Ludé, past president of SMPTE, the session will "address the impact of laser projection technology on digital cinema and provide a look at breathtaking images shown on the Big Screen Experience's 6-Primary laser projection system from Christie."
SMPTE will also co-produce 'Go With UHD-1, or Wait for UHD-2?' as part of the IBC Technical Stream. The session will see Dr. Hans Hoffmann, past SMPTE standards vice president, and Howard Lukk, a SMPTE standards director, hold a conversation with players in this space to explore strategies and standards for content creation and delivery to the home.
Additional sessions with SMPTE members include 'Trifocal Camera Systems' as part of the IBC Big Screen Experience; and 'Movie-making in the Matrix', presented by SMPTE Governor Richard Welsh, who will join fellow experts in examining virtualized movie production.
SMPTE will also present 'EDCF Global D-Cinema Update', in which a SMPTE panelists — including Governor Angelo D'Alessio — will bring attendees up to speed on the latest business and technology developments in digital cinema.
SMPTE is once again supporting IBC's Rising Stars program, which offers conference sessions tailored to tackle the topics most important to young professionals. The program gives new entrants to the industry the opportunity to meet industry players across a series of sessions and events.
