News Image
NAB Show's Future of Cinema Conference (FoCC), "Now, Next, and Beyond the Yellow Brick Road," produced in partnership with SMPTE®, is to take place April 6-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in the South Hall, Meeting Rooms S222/S223.

Experts who are changing the very foundation of the media and entertainment industry will map the path toward the technology horizon in an FoCC program boasting a broad, global perspective, with diverse planes of thought and the technical depth typical of SMPTE. Todd Douglas Miller, the filmmaker behind the critically acclaimed "Apollo 11" moon landing documentary, will present the keynote, scheduled for 9:10 a.m. on Saturday, April 6. Miller's keynote will describe the process of making "Apollo 11," which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it received a Special Grand Jury Prize for Editing.

Other sessions include "How Video Games Are Changing the Way of Cinema," "Skynet or Bust: How Machine Learning Can Serve Filmmaking," "VFX in the Cloud: 5G," "What Comes After Movies — Is That All There Is?" and many more.

IP Showcase at 2019 NAB Show
SMPTE® will again join with the Audio Engineering Society (AES), Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), and Video Services Forum (VSF) to support the IP Showcase at the 2019 NAB Show at Booth C12634. The 2019 IP Showcase will emphasize practical applications of IP video and audio technology and how that technology is enabling real-world media productions. The IP Showcase is designed to communicate current knowledge and advances — including the areas of system control and monitoring, security, emerging standards, and agile deployments — and show how the evolving SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards and the AMWA NMOS technology stack are improving media workflows for large and small deployments alike.

SMPTE Publications, Resources, and Opportunities at the 2019 NAB Show
Visitors to the SMPTE® booth at the 2019 NAB Show will have the chance to view "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, and "Magic & Miracles: 100 Years of Moving Image Science & Technology," a richly illustrated and meticulously crafted history of the Society and its groundbreaking work over the past century. Attendees can purchase these books at the NAB Show store.

The April issue of the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, which focuses on UHD/HDR, will be available at the 2019 NAB Show. Technical papers in this issue include "Predicting HDR Cinema Requirements From HDR Home Master Statistics," "European Athletics Championships: Lessons From a Live HDR, HFR, UHD, and Next-Generation Audio Sports Event," and "Video Luminance Levels for Human Skin Tones in Hybrid Log-Gamma Video."

In the SMPTE booth, visitors also will find information about the Society's new Essential Technology Concepts Webcast Series, designed to cover the foundational concepts, technologies, and workflows associated with the creation of professional media content. Essential Technology Concepts Webcasts are offered to SMPTE members and nonmembers as a complimentary service to support the advancement of the media and entertainment industry and its members. The Society also will highlight a new self-study option available for SMPTE Virtual Classroom courses, giving participants worldwide even more flexibility in taking advantage of educational opportunities.

SMPTE staff members will be on hand to provide details on the SMPTE 2019 annual flagship event, which has been reimagined and redesigned to offer more opportunities for engagement with the latest technologies and the creatives, engineers, scientists, and decision-makers behind them.

Visitors to the SMPTE booth also can get information on submitting manuscript proposals for SMPTE 2019. Authors of manuscript proposals selected by the SMPTE 2019 program committee will have the opportunity to present at the event and network with the industry's most esteemed technology thought leaders and engineering executives during the world's premier forum for the exploration of media and entertainment technology. The deadline for abstract submission is May 3.
