SMPTE17 Conference : Embracing Connective Media

Australia’s forum for the exploration of broadcast, media and entertainment technology, SMPTE17, will be held at the new International Convention Centre (ICC) at Darling Harbour, and includes three days of compelling technical conference sessions. The programme brings together a wide range of international and local technology thought-leaders, with more than 60 presenters and panelists from 13 countries.

Sessions include managing the effective and efficient implementation of IP and cloud technologies, the challenges of production, storage and distribution for Ultra High Definition (UHD) and High Dynamic Range (HDR) content, quality considerations for file-based content, developments in compression, vision and sound strategies for virtual reality/augmented reality, and insights into online video consumption and audience measurement.

Several case studies will be presented, including delivering drama for extreme screen sizes, new approaches to remote sports production, and utilising IP-based switching to bring a ‘live cinema’ project to life.

Broadcast and IT engineers, solutions architects, specifiers, project managers, technicians, producers, students, trainees, equipment suppliers and manufacturers, as well as CTOs and CEOs in related industries – all will find the Conference offers thought-provoking and insightful sessions on the latest trends, technologies and operational practices for the broadcast, content production and media industries. The conference will balance technical matters with creative, operational and business topics.
