The Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers (SMPTE) today announced that Grass Valley CEO Alain Andreoli will join a distinguished panel of industry leaders to discuss the future of acquisition, production, post-production and distribution technologies at the SMPTE Forum on Emerging Media Technologies, an executive-level symposium to be held by the Society 13 15 May in Geneva and produced in collaboration with the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The early-bird registration for the symposium ends 31 January.
Andreoli will be part of The Forum panel More Than Clouds On The Horizon, where industry thought leaders will discuss their companies vision for content production and delivery against the backdrop of pervasive and rapidly evolving media and entertainment industry drivers, including IT-based production and cloud deployments.
Grass Valley is a long-time technology leader within the media and entertainment industries and has a deep understanding of what companies in those sectors need to succeed for the long term. We are thrilled to have Alain share those insights at The SMPTE Forum, said David Wood of the EBU and the chair of the symposiums program committee.
Other executive presenters at The SMPTE Forum include those from ABC Australia, ATSC, BSkyB, EBU, Ericsson, the Fraunhofer Institute IIS, IBM, Intel, NHK, Radio Bremen, Radio Television Hong Kong, Screen Digest, Sony, Sports Video Group, Warner Bros., and zeebox.
The SMPTE Forum on Emerging Media technologies is the only industry event to bring together leading motion-imaging technologists, researchers, scientists, practitioners, manufacturers, and strategic thinkers. Over the course of two days, it will provide a science-based, non-commercial opportunity for executives and other senior leaders from the broadcast, broadband and cinema industries to discuss the most important and innovative research taking place over the next 10 to 15 years, with a particular focus on technologies likely to come to market within the next three years. All in an environment designed for easy networking.
