Today and Tomorrow 18-19 June 2013 SMPTE is holding it’s first ever conference at the 1878 home of motion picture technology, Stanford University. (see http://lcls.slac.stanford.edu/VideoViewMuybridge.aspx)
“Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age” addresses technical and business issues which arise from the increased capability of the Internet to deliver very high quality video content. 300+ attendees and presenters from major studios and internet companies (Apple being the one exception) attest to the importance of this subject matter to both content creators and internet service providers.
