NEW TECHNOLOGIES “BOOT CAMP"
at the Dedham (MA) Holiday Inn
These are indeed interesting times for those of us working in the technical side of television. As if the challenge of transitioning from analog standard definition to digital high definition television wasn’t enough, we now face the task of providing higher resolution (UHD, 4K and beyond), higher dynamic range (HDR), higher frame rates (HFR), resolution independence (both gigantic and miniscule screens) plus a whole new and efficient way of getting that signal from one place to another (IP and ATSC 3.0). Much of this is driven by the never ending desire for greater efficiency. Technology is the ever-evolving engine that makes this possible.
It’s all a bit overwhelming and no one wants—or can afford to be—left behind. In an effort to foster greater understanding of where all of this is leading us, the New England Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) is offering a “New Technologies Boot Camp,” an all day series of seminars by technical industry leaders on Thursday, May 19th, just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. The program will run from 9 AM till 9 PM in the Terrace Room at the Dedham, MA Holiday Inn, 55 Ariadne Road, just off I-95 exit 15A (just across Providence Highway, Legacy Place and FOX 25).
As with nearly all programs offered by the SMPTE New England Section, there is no charge to attend this event and no RSVP is required.
Distinguished presenters include: Hugo Gaggioni, Chief Technical Officer, Sony Electronics, Karl Kuhn, Tektronix, Bruce Lane, Grass Valley, Al Kornak, JVC-Kenwood, Paul Briscoe, Evertz Microsystems, Mark Bergeron, Panasonic, John Shike, S.A.M. (formerly SNELL), Peter Putman, noted consultant and Mark Schubin, Engineer-in Charge, the Metropolitan Opera, Sesame Street and Great Performances (PBS).
The program will conclude with a panel discussion by the program’s presenters beginning at 8 PM
SMPTE New England wishes to express its sincerest thanks to INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS GROUP, The Camera Company, Inc., a broadcast integrator, for hosting this event during their 26th Annual Pro Video & Lighting Show as well as to all of the manufacturers who so generously made their engineering talent available to us.
