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.

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
