Registration Open For SMPTE 2021 Annual Technical Conference

The SMPTE 2021 Annual Technical Conference (SMPTE 2021 ATC), will be hosted virtually from Nov. 9-11 and Nov. 16-18, with daily four-hour sessions offered.

The Society’s annual technical conference is the world's premier peer-reviewed forum for media and entertainment technology, and this year’s format and schedule, including a day of sessions presented in APAC-friendly time zones, are designed to make participation more convenient for busy industry professionals everywhere.

“SMPTE’s Annual Technical Conference has become the go-to connection for cutting-edge research, insights, and technology,” said Mike Zink, education vice president at SMPTE. “For our global community of professionals facing the many challenges of the past year, it’s more important than ever to stay at the forefront of technology. The SMPTE 2021 ATC gives media professionals, technologists, and engineers an exciting chance to connect with everything they love about the technology and the people shaping our industry.”

SMPTE 2021 ATC will feature expert presentations on next-generation technologies, as well as discussions on traditional broadcast engineering, sustainability, media in the cloud, and operational SMPTE ST 2110 deployments. Attendees will find out why and how the SMPTE Rapid Industry Solutions (RIS) initiative is bringing much-needed agility to critical workflows and applications in virtual production. They will gain practical take-aways they can use from daily live roundtables and Q&As.

The pricing for SMPTE 2021 ATC makes it easy to participate, learn, and shape the future — and this year, students attend for free. As a not-for-profit association of motion-imaging professionals, SMPTE is dedicated to supporting industry education throughout the world. Through the Pay It Forward program, which gives registrants the opportunity to subsidize broader participation, SMPTE and its members are making the event affordable for students and educators, registrants in eligible developing countries, and individuals who are currently unemployed, furloughed, or otherwise experiencing financial difficulties.
