We bring together Art and Engineering
Since its founding in 1916, SMPTE has developed more than 800 standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, and it continues to innovate at a rapid clip, generating an average of 50 new standards annually focused on film and digital cinema, television, and Internet video.
By providing structure, organization, and interoperability, SMPTE has helped advance the motion-imaging industry through all of the major transitions, from the advent and integration of sound and color to the shift from celluloid and analog to digital formats, including digital cinema, high-definition TV (HDTV), and 3D TV
