Essential Technology Concepts Webcast — Free and Open to All

TITLE: Electronic Camera and Display Fundamentals — From Light to Code Values and From Code Values to Light!

https://www.smpte.org/education/webcasts/electronic-camera-display-fundamentals

SPEAKER: Ricardo Figueroa, Associate Professor and Chair for the Motion Picture Science Program at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)

WHEN: Thursday, April 18, 1 p.m. EST

In this webcast, we will discuss the basic technical concepts that describe how electronic cameras and electronic displays work. We will describe the journey light takes from a scene to the electronic sensor inside a camera and back out to light on an electronic display. Have you ever wondered how light gets converted into an electronic signal? What a pixel code value really is? What that pixel code value represents, and how it is converted back to light on a display? What the acronyms CCD, CMOS, LCD, DLP, and OLED mean? If you have wondered these things, make sure to join us for this webcast. We'll answer these and many other questions regarding basic concepts about electronic cameras and displays.

Essential Technology Concepts Webcasts are free and open to all.

Monthly Technology Webcast — Open to SMPTE Members

TITLE: New Criteria to Measure HDR Image Quality

https://www.smpte.org/webcasts/measure-hdr-image

SPEAKER: Pierre (Pete) Hugues Routhier, Eng., M.Eng., former Aerospace Engineer, Advanced Imaging Technologies Specialist, and Author of "A Digital Troublemaker Guide to HDR"

WHEN: Thursday, April 25, 1 p.m. EST

The high-dynamic-range (HDR) image container is much wider than classic HDTV and DCI containers, allowing content creators to display much more luminance information than previously possible. Does content take advantage of this new format? It depends on many factors, including the conditions in which the content is shot. In this SMPTE Technology Series webcast, image specialist Pierre (Pete) Hugues Routhier suggests four criteria to determine whether images take full advantage of HDR and how to apply those criteria to a variety of asset types, such as sports, talk shows, dramatic series, and movies, to help assess their potential to amaze viewers with HDR.

SMPTE Technology Webcasts are complimentary to SMPTE Members. Attend this webcast for free by joining SMPTE today.
