Speaker: Peter Symes, Director, Standards & Engineering, SMPTE
As you may know, SMPTE is the premier standards development body for the motion imaging industry. What you may not know, however, is how those standards are developed.
During our next SMPTE Standards webcast, guest speaker, Peter Symes, SMPTE's Director, Standards & Engineering will discuss the process behind development of SMPTE Standards. Mr. Symes will explain why standards are important and who is involved in the standards development process. You will also learn how and why you too can be involved.
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:
- Membership: Promoting networking and interaction
- Standards: Developing industry standards
- Education: Enhancing education through seminars, exhibitions, and conferences
