SMPTE 2018 Symposium to Examine Key Technologies Driving the Entertainment Revolution

SMPTE®, the organization whose standards work has supported a more than a century of advances in entertainment technology and whose membership spans the globe, today announced the program lineup for the daylong SMPTE 2018 Symposium, “Driving the Entertainment Revolution: Autonomous Cars, Machine Intelligence, & Mixed Reality.” The Oct. 22 event will take place at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites in downtown Los Angeles leading into the SMPTE 2018 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition (SMPTE 2018).

“To some degree, SMPTE has been laying a lot of the groundwork for this topic over the past few years of the Symposium. Topics have ranged from improved picture, improved sound, and the future of storytelling, all the way to artificial intelligence and machine learning last year,” said SMPTE 2018 Symposium Chair Michael Zink, vice president of technology at Warner Bros. “This year really takes all of those pieces and puts them together in order to create this ultimate immersive experience, examining current market trends and highlighting significant in-car technology and entertainment advances, including the latest developments in autonomous driving, glass and display technologies, as well as connectivity.”
The morning session titled “How Today’s Tech Advances Will Drive Future Opportunity” will explore how recent advancements in multiple technologies — autonomous cars, machine intelligence, and mixed reality — have positioned the mobility sector for significant transformation. This first session will provide an overview of the current market, predictions for developments in the next few years, and insights into potential opportunities for media and entertainment companies to develop new experiences for the mobile environment.
Intel Automated Driving Group Senior Vice President Douglas Davis will present the keynote, titled “Safety Today for the Autonomous Tomorrow.” He will focus on the potential of autonomous vehicles to save lives by reducing or eliminating human error on the roads. He also will discuss how consumers’ embrace of such vehicles will give rise to a massive new passenger economy and, in turn, drive change across a variety of industries.
Following the keynote, the session titled “How Innovative Content Applications Will Fuel In-Car Entertainment” will likewise examine opportunities arising from consumer adoption of autonomous vehicles. Panelists will discuss how the concept of in-car entertainment will be redefined when passengers have far more time to consume entertainment content on the go. This Symposium session will highlight innovative ideas for content applications — from screen extensions to mixed reality — specifically designed for this new environment. Using real-life examples, it will provide a glimpse into what the in-car entertainment experiences of the future will bring.
The afternoon program will feature a session titled “How Cutting-Edge Tech Will Power Future Consumer Experiences.” This session will highlight some of the most exciting developments enabling new entertainment experiences. Speakers will share their knowledge about the latest innovations in glass and display technologies, improvements in communication and electronics, advancements in artificial intelligence and robotics, and implementations of cutting-edge biometric sensors — all of which will be used to develop the best consumer experiences of the future.
“This year’s Symposium will provide attendees with a fresh and uniquely rich perspective on the future of entertainment experiences,” said SMPTE Education Vice President Richard Welsh, CEO of Sundog Media Toolkit. “We will be covering one of the most exciting and quickly evolving areas of the media and entertainment industry, which will undoubtedly be a huge area for growth in media. We are privileged to be joined by some of the industry’s foremost experts, who will give us their insight into this fascinating and important emerging market segment!”
The Symposium is a favorite element of the SMPTE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, the world’s premier forum for the exploration of media and entertainment technology. Symposium registration is included with select SMPTE 2018 conference packages, either as an add-on or as a stand-alone registration. Early-bird rates for conference registration packages expire after Aug. 4.
At the 2018 NAB Show, SMPTE recorded a podcast in which Zink spoke about the Symposium. The podcast may be streamed here: https://soundcloud.com/smpteconnect/podcast-michael-zink-vice-president-of-technology-at-warner-bros/s-rI8z8.

Studio Technologies Offers Flex-Use Audio Resources with Model 5330 Interface
Studio Technologies, manufacturer of high-quality audio, video, and fiber-optic solutions, introduces the Model 5330 Flex-Use Dante(r) Audio Interface, a simple yet high-performance means of interfacing analog signals with applications that utilize Dante audio-over-Ethernet media networking technology. Four line-level analog sources can be connected to the unit and then, after conversion to digital, output by way of four output (transmitter) channels associated with the Dante interface. Four signals that arrive by way of Dante can be converted to analog and then output as balanced line-level signals. A 2-channel/stereo monitor section allows the input and output signals to be selectively observed using meters, a headphone output, and line-level outputs.

Boothbay Region Community Television Reignites Itself through Live Streaming with Cablecast Community Media Platform

First established in 1995 as an ad hoc committee of the Boothbay Harbor town government, Boothbay Region Community Television (BRCTV) inspires, educates and facilitates video and filmmaking not only in the Boothbay Region, but across the entire state of Maine. When the station set out to refresh and reinvent itself last year with an emphasis on live streaming, they chose the Cablecast Community Media platform and Cablecast Reflect cloud-based stream delivery service from Tightrope Media Systems as the linchpins of its operations.

EditShare Jumps Into The Game With Ubisoft Montreal Posted: 14/11/2018
EditShare Jumps Into The Game With Ubisoft Montr and eacute;al

EditShare® a technology leader in intelligent scale-out storage, AQC and media management solutions, is helping UbiSoft Montreal meet the demands of live capture, editing and real-time playback of up to 4K content with its enterprise EditShare XStream EFS 450 shared storage solutions and integrated EditShare Geevs video servers which support up to 4 concurrent ingest and playout streams. “We have a different set up from the typical capture or montage studio. First, our montage studio is larger than the average. With over 3,500 people on staff, we have a lot of different connections and workflow demands,” says Michel Forbes, System Administrator, Ubisoft Montreal. “One of the key workflows is live capture, edit and real-time video playback. This is the defacto workflow for many teams; the complexity of managing such a large operation and heavy project load requires a high degree of organization and system performance. We researched the options and found EditShare to be versatile enough to meet the requirements with the performance necessary to support the nuances and needs of these demanding productions.”
