SMPTE Streams Live Seminar from Montgomery’s TV Studio

The Philadelphia Chapter of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) streamed its first-ever student-focused seminar live from Montgomery County Community College’s TV studio in the Advanced Technology Center on April 2.

Eight of the College’s Digital Broadcasting students, under the direction of Associate Professor Neil Goldstein, Assistant Professor Allan Shear, and Technical Services Assistant Shawn Sealer, ran the technical aspects of the live streaming event: camera, sound, graphics and controls.  Approximately 30 students from the College’s Communication, Digital Audio Production and Digital Broadcasting programs were able to observe the entire session from inside the TV studio.

The students had the opportunity to work with Philly SMPTE Manager Rick Gamble, who hosted the program, which focused on the topic of building a tapeless infrastructure with asset management and tiered storage. The program also included a presentation from Editshare representatives.

Students and industry professionals from throughout the greater Philadelphia region watched the live stream and submitted their questions via Twitter.
