SMPTE to Receive Tech Emmy for HD-SDI Standard
Society being honored for work on SMPTE 292 transmission standard
July 31, 2013
PLAINS, N.Y. —The Society of Motion Picture and
Television Engineers is receiving an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering
for its work on development, standardization, and productization of the
High-Definition Serial Digital Interface standard. SMPTE will receive
the honor from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in
January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
organization such as ours, the Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering is not
only a tremendous honor, but also confirmation that we’re successfully carrying
out our mission as the leading technical society for the motion-imaging
industry,” said SMPTE Executive Director Barbara Lange. “We’re very proud
of the work our members have done in advancing the HD-SDI standard, as well as
the value that the standard itself brings to the field.”
SMPTE is being recognized for its work
on the SMPTE 292 standard for high-definition digital video transmission, the
foundation for the family of serial digital interface standards for
transmitting uncompressed HD video signals. The SMPTE 292 standard has proven
to be robust and versatile, and a large number of additional standards have
been created based on SMPTE's original work.
derivative standards address higher data-rate versions and the use of multiple
interfaces for advanced applications such as D-Cinema connectivity. These derivative
standards have also provided for packaging and identification of many
additional signal types, making the HD-SDI standard the workhorse of high-speed
synchronous communication. The HD-SDI interface standard is one of more than
650 engineering documents that have been published by SMPTE.
