The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) will celebrate its 90th anniversary this year during its annual Technical Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Hollywood at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel, October 18-21.
SMPTE will celebrate its anniversary on the first day of the conference, with a gala celebration that evening at one of Hollywood’s top studios, followed by a special movie screening. The society was founded 90 years ago to answer the need to standardize a fledgling and disorganized technology. Today SMPTE is involved in standardization of high-definition television, digital cinema, compression systems and content protection.
