The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), in partnership with the Stanford Center for Image Systems Engineering, will host the Entertainment Technology in the Internet Age (ETIA) Conference at Stanford University on June 18 and 19. The event will focus on the technical, creative and business requirements for delivering compelling, high-quality, profitable entertainment experiences over the Internet, covering four aspects of the digital ecosystem.
Entertainment technology development and content deployment has historically been the purview of Hollywood and traditional broadcast media. However, the rapid convergence of technology improvements in connectivity, bandwidth and media-processing coupled with consumer interest have caused a surge in digital media distribution over the Internet. The ETIA conference will cover Internet-focused content creation, distribution and monetization, as well as the technical tools and solutions for shaping the user experience.
Planned presentations include “Flash Forward: How HTML-5 and Canvas Will Become the Next Interactive Screen for Web Media,” a panel discussion by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and media technology experts on the future of UI technology, and sessions examining the standards and formats (such as SMPTE Interoperable Master Format (IMF), HLS and MPEG-DASH) used to facilitate distribution and optimize content quality. Other panels include “Internet, the Second Screen and Beyond,” “Next Generation Content in the Cloud: Ultraviolet,” “Legal and Illegal Distribution over the Internet: Can We Find Common Solutions?” and “Future File Formats for Entertainment Media: What Are the Tech Trends and Implications for Internet Distribution?”
