The Detroit Section of SMPTE is made up of professionals, students and others interested in the technology of motion imaging. The Section holds monthly meetings with a technical topic. Non-members are always welcome and there is usually no admission charge.
SMPTE is conducting four regional seminars in May on practical steps in implementing a file-based workflow. The seminar will cover the steps, challenges, and success in transitioning a traditional broadcast facility to one with a file-based workflow. Nearest to us is Toronto on May 14. Registration is $199 for SMPTE members and only $59 for students.
This month’s program will feature a discussion of the technology specified in the ATSC Mobile DTV Standard, adopted in October 2009. It defines the technical specifications for broadcasters to provide new services to mobile and handheld devices using their digital television (DTV) transmissions. These services are carried along with current DTV services without adverse impact on legacy receiving equipment. ATSC Mobile DTV was developed to support a variety of services including free (advertiser-supported) television and interactive services delivered in real-time, subscription-based TV, and file-based content download for playback at a later time. The standard can also be used for transmission of new data broadcasting services.
Light refreshments will be served, courtesy of Rohde & Schwarz. A brief business meeting will be held prior to the presentation.
