The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) has announced changes to its educational programming designed to make it easier for industry professionals to keep up with the latest technology and to learn new skills. In addition to supporting professional development, the Society’s robust array of webcasts, meetings, and online courses offers members a way to connect with colleagues and to prepare for future opportunities in a changing industry and world.
Virtual course prices have been cut by 50%. Details are available under the Instructor and Self-Study options, accessible from the education dropdown menu on their website. SMPTE technology webcasts are still available online to everyone. The Society has also opened a collection of freely accessible SMPTE Standards and articles from the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal to help professionals in their work.
The Society is also working with local SMPTE Sections to get meetings streamed so that every member can stay on top of technology, no matter where they are. The latest news on Section meetings is available on their website, in the Society’s newsletters, and in local Section emails. SMPTE’s microsites help professionals obtain insights under one theme. Themes established so far include Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in Media, Blockchain in Media, and Microservices in Media. More sites are currently under development.
