SMPTE has confirmed final approval of its nomination of Andy Maltz as 2018-2020 chair of ISO/TC 36, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) group dedicated to cinematography.

Maltz, who is Managing Director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Science and Technology Council, will serve as chair-elect in 2017 as SMPTE Member Julian Pinn, the current chair, serves out his term after nine years in the role.

SMPTE made the nomination in its role as ISO/TC 36 Secretariat, appointed by and acting on behalf of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The Society's nomination of Maltz was supported by the Technical Advisory Group for TC 36 and then approved and forwarded by ANSI to the ISO Technical Management Board for final approval, which was granted.

ISO/TC 36 is responsible for the standardization of definitions, dimensions, methods of measurement, and test and performance characteristics relating to materials and apparatuses used in silent and sound motion-picture photography; in sound recording and reproduction related thereto; in the installation and characteristics of projection and sound reproduction equipment; in laboratory work; and in standards relating to sound and picture films used in television.

Commenting on the nomination, Maltz said: "I am honored to have been nominated by SMPTE for this role. It is an exciting time in the development of cinema standards, and I look forward to continuing the excellent work done by Julian and the ISO/TC group as a whole."

Maltz is responsible for developing and implementing the Academy's Science and Technology Council's operational plan, administering the Council's day-to-day operations, allocating individual contributions to selected Council initiatives, and for representing the Academy on science and technology issues at industry, government, and academic forums.

"We are thrilled to have Andy take on this very important role," said Howard Lukk, director of engineering and standards at SMPTE. "His extensive experience in the cinema industry and his dedication to the standards process will be valuable assets as we move forward into the future of global international cinema standards."
