“As Latin America’s largest tech event for media and entertainment, SET Expo consistently draws an impressive number and array of innovators, thought leaders, creatives, and technology professionals,” said Goldman. “The congress program provides attendees with valuable opportunities to discuss the trends and technologies shaping the future of content creation, consumption modes and models, and the commercial applications.

Bause Mason’s presentation will be “SMPTE’s Road to the Future” and will provide an update on the evolving media industry and how SMPTE is adapting to produce the standards and specifications for the next-generation media industry.

Goldman will also participate in a session on Tuesday, Aug. 28, at 11:30 a.m. titled “Upgrade of Video, HDR and 8K Broadcast Lenses,” where he will present an update on the state of high-dynamic-range (HDR) video and an explanation of mixing HDR and standard dynamic-range content using live (inverse) tone-mapping techniques.

For more than a century, the people of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, or SMPTE (pronounced “simp-tee”), have sorted out the details of many significant advances in media and entertainment technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, SMPTE has received an Oscar and multiple Emmy Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery engineering across the industry. SMPTE has developed thousands of standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are currently in force today. SMPTE Time Code™ and the ubiquitous SMPTE Color Bars™ are just two examples of SMPTE’s notable work. Now in its second century, SMPTE is shaping the next generation of standards and providing education for the industry to ensure interoperability as the industry evolves further into IT- and IP-based workflows.

SMPTE’s global membership today includes more than 7,000 members: motion-imaging executives, creatives, technologists, researchers, and students who volunteer their time and expertise to SMPTE’s standards development and educational initiatives. A partnership with the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA) connects SMPTE and its membership with the businesses and individuals who support the creation and finishing of media content.
