SMPTE exhibition hits Sydney in July

The Society of Motion Picture Engineers is hosting an exhibition in Sydney from July 14-17 and have invited people to submit papers aimed at advancing the audio and visual industry’s future. 

The objective of SMPTE is the “Advancement in the theory and practice of motion picture engineering and the allied arts and sciences, the standardisation of the mechanisms and practices employed therein, and the maintenance of a high professional standing among its members.” and many of its innovations in audio technology have been used by the the radio industry internationally. 

SMPTE Governor for Asia and the Australian Region John Maizels told radioinfo: “In 2013 we continued our policy of bringing Radio into focus with SMPTE conference delegates, and ensuring that there was a strong Radio component on the floor of the exhibition. But I think we can do even better. In 2015 there are so many game changing topics to discuss;  the further emergence of free and fee streaming services, shift from analogue to digital hardware, whether the CD is dying or is it going to be replaced by a resurgance of vinyl, and what is the best way to deliver to the listener.  

“Anyone who has the answer to these questions needs to get on the program for SMPTE15, because that’s where you’re going to find the people who are asking all the questions!!”

SMPTE15 in Sydney is projected to attract several hundred delegates alongside the exhibition that offers exhibit space for over 100 technology vendors drawing thousands of visitors. The 3-day immersive conference is scheduled to kick off with a keynote address by Chris Fetner, director of global content partners operations at Netflix. 

The deadline for paper submissions is February 15th.   More information about the call for papers and how to submit is here.
