With over 80 years of motion-imaging technical conferences, SMPTEwill hold this year's Technical Conference and Exhibition in New YorkCity, November 12-15, 2003, at the Hilton New York. The four-dayconference comprises 16 core seminars led by experts and pioneers inmotion-imaging technology.
"Our program is responding to the need for more tutorial-basedseminars," said Thomas Jordan, SMPTE's conference VP, "and we've alsoadded half-day registration, so that if you can't attend the entireconference, you can at least attend the seminars that are relevant toyou." Fred Motts, SMPTE's executive director, agreed: "We've concludedthat demographics of SMPTE conferences are now including more and moreusers and field staff, and so our seminars, although still technical,reflect a more hands-on approach."
Seminar topics include: "Networking Fundamentals," two MXF and AAFtutorials, "Networking in a Media Environment," "Multiplexing andTransport Fundamentals," "Motion Picture Seminar," "Multichannel Audio:Challenges and Solutions," "Copy Protection and Rights Management,""Digital Broadcasting Update," "Digital Cinema Update," "DASE andHarmonization," "Motion Pictures and the Digital Intermediate,""Networking and the Home Environment," "Exhibition Technology:Projection, Sound, Automation and Control," "Digital Media andWorkflow" and "Color Science for Digital Motion Imaging."
