SMPTE TorontoThe Toronto Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) will host Boot Camp VII — “Pixels & Packets: Exploring UHD, HDR, and Live IP” — on June 21-22 at the George Vari Engineering and Computing Centre at Ryerson University, Toronto. Presented as one of the section’s popular biennial technical seminars, this event will explore ultra-high-definition (UHD), high-dynamic-range (HDR), and live internet protocol (IP) technologies.

“We have designed our newest boot camp to address the rapid and wide-ranging changes taking place in pixels and packets delivery,” says Tony Meerakker, chair of the SMPTE Toronto Section. “Through two days of sessions led by industry experts and accomplished professionals, we’ll help engineers get a better handle on new technologies, formats, and standards and how they can be leveraged to improve the efficiency of current and future content creation and delivery workflows.”

Organizers say Boot Camp VII will feature top-tier keynote speakers, theater-style seating, a comfortable and intimate industry trade show, and technology demonstrations. Presentations at the SMPTE Toronto Section’s Boot Camp VII will focus on topics including:
• Image acquisition
• UHD: bigger, better, faster pixels
• Color and dynamic range management
• Standards for UHD and IP
• IP technologies for live production
• Postproduction workflows
• Dealing with standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) in a UHD world
