SMPTE To Discuss Current Trends At IBC2017

News Image
At IBC2017, around 130 SMPTE Sustaining Members will exhibit at the show, with the Society itself among the six international associations that serve as the partners behind IBC.

Throughout IBC2017, SMPTE staff will be on hand within the IBC Partnership Village to discuss current trends and answer questions about SMPTE activities, resources and publications, including the latest SMPTE Standards Quarterly Report.

Copies of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, including the September 2017 'Progress Report' issue, will be available on the stand, while visitors will also have the chance to view and order 'The Honor Roll and Honorary Members of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers', a limited edition book that showcases the past century's industry leaders and innovators. The Society also will be accepting pre-orders for 'Magic & Miracles: 100 Years of Moving Image Science & Technology', a history of the Society and its work over the past century.

At the show, SMPTE Director of Membership, Roberta Gorman, will be available to discuss membership benefits and the Society's role in global standards and interoperability. Prospective members will be able to join, and existing members may renew their memberships on-site. Through the Student Membership Challenge (SMC), a SMPTE fund that pays for a student's first year of membership, students can join for free.

Elsewhere, SMPTE has joined with the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), IABM, Media Networking Alliance (MNA), and Video Services Forum (VSF) to support the IP Showcase at the IBC2017 Show. Dedicated to educating visitors and highlighting the business and creative benefits of IP, the exhibition will provide a unified, industry-wide view of the latest advances in IP technology and how it can add maximum value to the broadcast industry and the individuals and companies that drive it. Visitors to the IP Showcase will see engineering progress along with real-world examples of IP applications from leading networks and program producers. The exhibition also will assist broadcast/IT engineers, CEOs, producers, and others in determining how they can leverage the benefits of the draft SMPTE ST-2110 specifications.

'SMPTE ST 2110: Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks' is scheduled for the Forum on Monday, 18 September at 2pm as part of the Advances in Technology stream. The session will provide an overview of the proposed SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards and describe how the tools included in it can be used within an infrastructure of networked specifications to achieve flexible solutions for professional media live production. Session Chair Thomas Edwards, vice president of engineering and development at FOX Networks, will be joined in the discussion by SMPTE President Matthew Goldman of Ericsson; SMPTE Fellow John Mailhot, systems architect for IP convergence at Imagine Communications; Howard Lukk, Director of Engineering and Standards at SMPTE; and Willem Vermost, Network IP Media Technology Architect.

Meanwhile, SMPTE Members Brian Claypool of Christie, Mats Erixon of Community Hub Foundation, Toby Glover of Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema, Andy Maltz of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), Radoslav Markov of Audio Video Orpheus, Richard Phillips of Arts Alliance Media, and Julian Pinn will speak at the EDCF Global Update. Along with other leaders in the cinema technology field, they will provide delegates with current information on the latest business and technical advances in global cinema across the value chain, from manufacturing through postproduction, mastering, distribution, exhibition, and archiving. A networking and drinks reception will follow the presentations.

In addition, more than 70 SMPTE Members will participate in over 20 different IBC2017 conference sessions, across the streams.

Barbara H. Lange, Executive Director of SMPTE, said: "SMPTE has been making tremendous strides in standards work related to new modes of content processing and distribution, while also providing valuable educational programs that assist all members of the industry to keep on top of the latest tools, techniques, and technologies. We look forward to showcasing a year of significant SMPTE progress at IBC2017."
