SMPTE and NAB Technology Summit adds High Frame Rate 3D tutorial

March 19, 2013

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment and technology industries, confirmed the sessions scheduled for the 2013 NAB Show's "Technology Summit on Cinema: Advances in Image and Sound," produced in partnership with SMPTE.

Scheduled for April 6-7 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall Conference Room S222, the summit will feature more than a dozen sessions, including a newly added, prerecorded High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D tutorial narrated by James Cameron. In a video produced by Lightstorm Entertainment, attendees will receive an overview of the benefits of HFR 3D, with representative footage that is rarely offered in public presentations.

"Working with the NAB Show, we have created an exciting lineup of industry experts who will provide timely and relevant insights into the techniques and technologies driving our industry forward," said Barbara Lange, executive director at SMPTE. "The HFR 3D tutorial is one of many dynamic sessions that will demonstrate the application of new technologies in delivering a compelling, engaging and immersive cinema experience."

Summit sessions will address topics ranging from advanced image capture to next-generation motion picture projection and immersive sound. In addition to the previously announced keynote interview with producer Jon Landau and the sessions titled "Advancing Cameras for Cinema," "High Frame Rate (HFR) Motion Pictures," and "A Brighter Future: Developments in Laser Projection," the summit will feature sessions on new digital-cinema standards and workflow models, as well as an update on the rollout of digital cinema worldwide.

Throughout the two-day event, sessions will examine digital production workflows; the technologies, issues and business opportunities afforded by distributed post-production for cinema; the advantages and pitfalls of 3D conversion; and the pursuit of solutions that enable a truly transparent yet immersive sound experience.

In conjunction with the NAB Show, SMPTE is offering members a $100 discount (code EP33) on the 2013 NAB Show SMART Pass and Conference Flex Pass, both of which enable participation in the Technology Summit on Cinema. A free Exhibits-Only pass also is available (code EP02). The registration deadline for this SMPTE offer is March 22. Registration is at www.nabshow.com/2013/event_services/registration_options.asp.

Paddington
Film Review: Paddington

This feel-good, looks-great first-time big-screen adaptation of the beloved British children's stories about a stowaway Peruvian bear finding his, er, bearings in London is much more than just, oops, bearable. The handsome production greatly benefits from a top-notch cast of some of the U.K.’s finest actors and its beautiful blend of CGI-enriched live action and animated ursine star. More »
