The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers has announced that the SMPTE 2015 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition October 26-29, in Hollywood, California, will feature an array of sessions dedicated to over-the-top, cloud, and Internet Protocol-based technology and services. During the Industry Luncheon on October 27 Ted Middleton, chief product officer at Verizon Digital Media Services, will make the keynote presentation titled The TV Everywhere Frontier — Where Broadcasting Meets the Internet.
"This year's conference will give attendees a unique opportunity to gain insight from top engineers, executives, and researchers from across the modern media industry," said Paul Chapman, SMPTE Hollywood Region Governor and SMPTE 2015 program committee chair. "As the notion of convergence becomes a concrete reality, and as content producers and providers begin the shift to IP and the cloud, the sessions at SMPTE 2015 offer an incomparable wealth of expertise and intelligence that will illuminate the path forward."
SMPTE 2015 will offer three days of technical sessions, with experts and thought leaders from motion picture studios, broadcast and distribution networks, the production and postproduction community, software companies, systems integrators, manufacturers, display technologies, distribution providers, OTT providers, and the evolving motion-imaging industry, as well as the information technology, Internet, gaming, and the virtual reality/augmented reality space.
Tickets to the SMPTE Industry Luncheon are not included in the conference registration package but may be purchased with conference registration packages.
