Spanning cinema, broadcast and broadband, DCS 2011, which is co-produced by SMPTE and the NAB, attracts leading motion-imaging technologists, researchers, scientists, practitioners, manufacturers and strategic thinkers. This year’s gathering is themed “Advances in Images and Sound: 3D, 4K, and Beyond.”
The 2011 event marks the formal name change of the event from Digital Cinema Summit to DCS, a move that reflects the expanding media ecosystem, according to event organizers.
