Stan Moote to be honoured with SMPTE award

The IABM has announced that its recently appointed CTO, Stan Moote, is set to be awarded the 2015 SMTPE Digital Processing Medal.

The SMPTE Board of Governors has approved Moote as the recipient of the award in honour of his ‘contributions and achievements’ to the industry. The Digital Processing Medal recognises Moote’s development of the first reliable video/audio scrambling system for composite analog video and analog audio in the early 1980s. The system digitised the analog signal, scrambled it, and reconstructed an analog signal which could be transmitted over satellite or microwave links with complete security. Once developed, the system was subsequently granted both a Canadian and US patent.

The prestigious accolade will be awarded to Moote at the SMPTE 2015 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, which takes place at the Loews Hollywood Hotel, Hollywood, California, 26-29 October. The award will be received during the Society’s Honors and Awards Ceremony on the final day of the conference.

IABM announced Stan Moote’s appointment as CTO in early August. The role will see Moote contribute to IABM’s technology thought leadership, he will assume responsibility for the development and scope of technical boards, committees, technology events, as well as assisting and formulating growth strategies across North America and the APAC region.

Stan Moote, CTO IABM will receive SMPTE's Digital Processing Medal at the organization's October conference.
