BOOK NOW: The 2022 Media Technology Conference | New

The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) has released the program for its Media Technology Conference 2022, which will take place on June 29 at the BFI Southbank, London.

The event brings together leading technologists from the industry to present and discuss topics affecting the industry in 2022.

SMPTE says the media technology conference is “guaranteed to be opinionated and thought-provoking” and says audience participation will be encouraged throughout the day.

The conference is separated into two areas – one focused on creative technology, including sessions on virtual production; cloud technology for production and publishing; and studio technology.

The second area will look at technology infrastructure and will include sessions covering standards versus owners for practical IP studio builds; whether to choose a public cloud or a private virtual infrastructure; and how useful 5G really is for broadcasters.

This one-day conference is aimed at senior technology leaders and their media broadcast, production and distribution teams, as well as graduates and students entering the industry.

A number of discounted tickets are available for young engineers. Each full price ticket entitles the buyer to purchase two discounted tickets, so a senior engineer can bring two junior team members to the conference, for example. A limited number of free tickets will also be available for students. Full price tickets cost £250 for SMPTE members and £315 for non-members. Reduced tickets (for Junior Engineers) cost £75 each.

Attendance provides a hands-on understanding of upcoming technologies, including their strengths and weaknesses, and the experiences others have had in implementing them.

After the event, there will be a networking reception at the BFI Southbank.
