Live television streaming has been an agenda item at many companies’ meetings for quite a while. There are questions and options to consider that are different from more traditional distribution outlets. How does the budget for a live TV production for the web compare to that of traditional delivery mechanisms? How do available streaming codecs and wrappers compare? What about the FCC, closed captions and other such concerns? Please join our guest speaker, John Naylor as he answers these questions and explores other issues relating to content distribution over the web, including uplink considerations, content management, delivery, trans-rating, trans-coding, multi-bitrate support.
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.
