WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. & SAO PAULO—SMPTE members now have the ability to join Brazil’s Society of Television Engineering (SET) at a discounted rate, and vice versa, as the two organizations have announced a new joint membership program.

With the new program, SET members can join SMPTE for $100, a 40% savings, while SMPTE members can sign up for SET with a $60 annual fee, a 45% discount. In addition to the discounts, SET members who opt to join SMPTE will get all of its benefits—discounts on SMPTE standards and conference papers; access to the SMPTE member directory; complementary technology and standards webcasts; complementary subscription to monthly newsletters; discounts on SMPTE courses, conference and events; online-only access to the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal; and the opportunity to join or form local Sections.

In addition to membership benefits, the new partnership will allow the two organizations to collaborate on shared goals. These include technological innovations; professional development; fostering work and study groups on latest market trends and challenges; furthering scientific and academic knowledge; producing standards; sharing content from each Society’s journal; and strengthening partnerships and promoting opportunities with local and international associations.
