The world of codecs can be a very confusing place. It is not a big surprise that one might find it challenging to understand them all. Codec options include JPEG, MPEG and variants of MPEG, like H.26x, AVCHD and HDCAM SR. And let’s not forget VC-2 and VC-3! So, how do they compare? How are they different from JPEG and MPEG? This month’s SMPTE PDA Now speaker, Mr. Walt Husak, Dolby Laboratories’ Director Image Technologies will help make sense of the world of codecs by answering these and many other questions. Please don’t miss this exciting educational opportunity. Register today!

When & Where
For the past 100 years, the people of the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE, pronounced “simp-tee”) have sorted out the details of many significant advances in entertainment technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, the Society has earned an Oscar® and multiple Emmy® Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery education and engineering across the communications, technology, media, and entertainment industries. The Society has developed thousands of standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are currently in force.
SMPTE’s global membership today includes 7,000 members, who are motion-imaging executives, engineers, creative and technology professionals, researchers, scientists, educators, and students. A partnership with the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA®) connects SMPTE and its membership with the professional community of businesses and individuals who provide the expertise, support, tools, and infrastructure for the creation and finishing of motion pictures, television programs, commercials, digital media, and other dynamic media content. Information on joining SMPTE is available at www.smpte.org/join.
