With the motion imaging industry producing digital content with higher resolutions and higher frame rates, not to mention the additional content required for 3D movies, storage is becoming more and more challenging. Once decisions are made regarding technology and architecture for short term access, what are the challenges to consider regarding content storage for the longer term, say 100 years? We already know digital storage is hard, but why haven't some of the more intuitive attempts to solve our storage challenges worked? Please join our special guest speaker, Mary G. Baker, HP Labs, as she explains the wide variety of threats to long-term storage of digital content and how they might be overcome.
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), is the leading technical society for the motion imaging industry.
SMPTE members are spread throughout 64 countries worldwide. Over 200 Sustaining (institutional) Members belong to SMPTE, allowing networking and contacts to occur on a larger scale. Touching on every discipline, our members include engineers, technical directors, cameramen, editors, technicians, manufacturers, designers, educators, consultants and field users in networking, compression, encryption and more.
SMPTE was founded in 1916 to advance theory and development in the motion imaging field. Today, SMPTE publishes ANSI-approved Standards, Recommended Practices, and Engineering Guidelines, along with the highly regarded SMPTE Journal and its peer-reviewed technical papers. SMPTE holds conferences and local Section meetings to bring people and ideas together, allowing for useful interaction and information exchange.
SMPTE strives toward its goal through:
