SMPTE Provides Valuable Opportunities
By Richard Welsh
SMPTE International Governor &
CEO of Sundog Media Toolkit

T

op-level executives, pioneering
engineers and influential thought
leaders count themselves amongst
SMPTE's growing membership of
more than 6000.
Their knowledge and influence
in the entertainment industry is far
reaching and a testament to the
high quality of professionals that
make up the Society. This strong
network of individuals is responsible
for the cutting edge technology that
delivers the best in creative content
to audiences across the globe, no
matter what screen they are using.
I first joined SMPTE to participate
in the standards effort. It was
invaluable to me personally and

professionally to be involved in
international standards work. I
found myself within a diverse
group of participating members
with a broad range of professional
backgrounds. The important work
of the Society in the standards area
provides the industry with necessary,
stable technical foundations that
enhance system interoperability.
I am now fortunate enough to
be a member of the SMPTE Board
of Governors. I always value the
incredible opportunity this has given
me to work with some of the most
talented people in the industry. I
wear my SMPTE badge with
pride. SMPTE is a highly inclusive

organisation open to all, regardless
of their technical or artistic
achievements, one that embraces
those passionate about media
technology. Local Section meetings
and Society conferences allow
members to network in learning
and social environments, which
encourages sharing of knowledge
that drives the industry forward.
For students, SMPTE membership
presents an enormous opportunity
to network with peers and industry
leaders. The educational events
and local Section meetings
provide a chance to learn more
about the Society's work and
to get involved. Students can
apply to receive a complimentary
first year of membership. Young
professionals also benefit from
SMPTE membership as it provides
opportunities for interaction with
experienced mentors who can
offer guidance and valuable insight
into the industry and help with

career development.
SMPTE conferences provide
a snapshot of the work we do,
showcasing standards, research
and practices in the media
technology space. These popular
events attract industry leaders

USTREAM, Netflix, Dolby, Warner
