Barbara H. Lange became executive director of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers in January 2010. “I can’t believe how fast time has passed,” she told me. “We’ve done quite a bit over the decade.” That is an understatement. In that time the Society has digitized SMPTE’s journal, conference papers, and standards to create the digital library that provides end-users access to SMPTE’s breadth of intellectual property, as well as being a sustainable revenue stream for the organization. In addition, the Society expanded its educational offerings by increasing the number of webcasts, virtual courses, and even conference programs that it delivers with excellent technical content. Today, more people are registering to attend SMPTE webcasts than ever before.
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, the organization that is defining the future of storytelling, will host its annual technical conference and exhibition on November 10-12 as an interactive and immersive remote experience with a rich array of learning and networking opportunities. Within this highly customizable online format, SMPTE 2020 will provide what it says will be unparalleled opportunities for attendees to explore the variety of new technologies and business models shaping the future of media and entertainment. The theme for this year's event is Game On, with one full day focused on the convergence of esports/gaming and media technology and the unique requirements of the thriving eSports industry.
