Tuesday, 4 March 2014

18:00 UTC /10:00 AM Pacific/1:00 PM Eastern)

In the broad, fast paced, ever changing landscape of Networked Media, several interested organizations realized the need to collaborate to better understand the “bigger picture”. As a result, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), and the Video Services Forum (VSF) formed the Joint Task Force on Professional Networked Streamed Media (JT-NM). Please join Felix Poulin, EBU’s Senior Project Manager, Media Production Technologies, as he defines Networked Media and its potential for opportunity, explains why the Task Force was needed to encourage interoperability, and outlines the next steps. Mr. Poulin will also present highlights from the recently published JT-NM Gap Analysis Report. Please don’t miss this important SMPTE Standards Update webcast.
