SMPTE Brings 'Digital Media: Production to Distribution Using IP' Seminar To The UK

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), has said it is to bring its 'Digital Media: Production to Distribution Using IP' seminar to the UK in February.
Led by SMPTE Fellow Bruce Devlin and Ben Davenport of AmberFin on 11 Feb. in London and 12 Feb. in Salford, the UK Regional Seminar will address the use of media over IT networks in both streaming and file-based workflows.
"The interconnected content creation and distribution workflow has arrived, and it is changing not only the technologies employed by media companies, but also the business models and strategies they implement," said Peter Weitzel, secretary treasurer of the SMPTE UK Section. "The radical impact of the IT migration is altering the way media is managed, moved, and manipulated. This one-day regional seminar offers those working in film, television, or digital media a unique and valuable opportunity to meet and learn about IP technology and communications as they relate to media."
After examining the many efficient, cost, and production-quality advantages afforded the entertainment media industry by adoption of IT networks, the seminar's expert instructors will look at how these technologies and techniques can be adapted to achieve efficiency throughout the full media life cycle — from acquisition though production, playout, archiving, contribution, and distribution — on multiple platforms. Topics will include an overview of the IP-based facility and workflow, the elements of a successful migration to IP, and roadmaps for workflow transition to IP in live production, contribution, and postproduction.
This seminar will be useful for all operational staff, whether from an IT or broadcast/media background, as well as other key personnel, including those who design systems. It will give them the working knowledge of how to create and deliver content for any platform most effectively as IP-based environments grow.
"We held SMPTE regional seminars here in the UK last year, and they were an enormous success," added Weitzel. "Working on the leading edge of the field and playing a central role in SMPTE's standards and education work, Bruce and Ben are positioned to offer information unavailable anywhere else. Their expertise, interaction with the audience, and engaging presentation styles will make this seminar highly informative and interesting — particularly for those professionals who are new to the media industry."
