Special Webinars – free to attend!!

The New World: Soundbites That Will Save Your Professional Life

Two dynamic sessions on Tuesday 11 July at lunchtime and early evening.

Don’t be caught tongue-tied when you’re asked about IP, HDR, WCG or PTP! Join our free LIVE Webinars today (Tuesday) and get the scoop, presented by thought leaders who are expert in making tech topics easy to digest, in two sessions moderated by John Maizels, SMPTE17 Conference Co-Chair.

Conference high-focus items for technologists and creatives this year are:
  • impending migration from SDI to IP infrastructure, which is going to change the way we can use facilities and OBs, and
  • High Dynamic Range which brings new life to the user experience but provides significant challenges for creatives, engineers, and operators – especially in live TV.

To help you get the best from the SMPTE17 Conference and Exhibition, we’ve created two short and open sessions today  and secured four SMPTE17 international participants to provide insight – at times that suit Australian participants!!

Session 1: 11:15 AEST (Sydney) Tuesday morning
The before-lunch session:
Paul Briscoe    SDI to IP: what is essence, timing and synchronisation?
Pat Griffis     HDR: let “scene based metadata” just roll off your tongue
Session 2: 19:15 AEST (Sydney) Tuesday evening
The around-dinner session:
Matthew Goldman     Migrating to IP – a primer: learn the lingo

Klaus Weber       HDR workflow for live: TV is different to cinema

Which session should you attend? Join one webinar or both, and relax: the sessions assume no prior knowledge – in fact, that’s the whole point. And bring questions, because both session are LIVE.

We’ve picked our panelists to give four quite different views (find out who they are below), and timed the sessions to fit with the Asia-Pacific timezone. Our webcasts are open to all, no charge, and we expect questions!

There’s no catch – give us forty minutes of your time, and you’ll get some takeaways to help you get better value from SMPTE17 next week.

Registration takes seconds – all it takes is a click above with your name and an email address.
 
Join us to get useful information and a SMPTE17 preview!   See you tomorrow!
