SMPTE PDA on Media Technology & Opera

SMPTE’s Professional Development Academy will be conducting a webinar on media technology & opera on February 11.  Why?

“Stereo sound and electronic home entertainment are two technologies invented for opera. Arguably, broadcasting, location recording, movies, and possibly even the telephone owe their existence to opera.

“Today, opera productions can involve banks of computer-graphics processors, infra-red motion-capture sensors, and multiple HD projectors. Operas have been distributed live to cinemas in 3-D. They have advanced camera motion, subtitling, and streaming technologies. They have used as many as 27 cameras, have been distributed live to as many as 125 countries simultaneously, and have even utilized the facilities of the Large Hadron Collider.”
