SMPTE 2020: Game On Augments Main Program With a Rich Blend of Sessions Organized by Program Partners

SMPTE® today announced that SMPTE 2020: "Game On," the Society's interactive and immersive remote technical conference experience scheduled for Nov. 10-12, will include programming designed and presented by its partners: HPA Women in Post, the Information Display and Entertainment Association (IDEA), 8K Association, Reliable Internet Stream Transport (RIST) Forum, Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), and Audio Engineering Society (AES), along with a series focusing on the Agile methodology for project management.

"SMPTE 2020 offers a remarkable breadth and depth of content, particularly with partner organizations contributing their time and talent to engage, educate, and even entertain," said Chris Witmayer, program committee co-chair for SMPTE 2020.

There, she helped develop and launch products for fans of the Olympics, Major League Baseball, the NBA, and the Champions League, as well as virtual enhancements such as the Emmy Award-winning 1st & Ten line for NFL fans.
