postPerspective’s ‘SMPTE 2019 Live’ interview coverage

postPerspective was the official production team for SMPTE during its most recent conference in downtown Los Angeles this year. Taking place once again at the Bonaventure Hotel, the conference featured events and sessions all week. (You can watch those interviews here.)

These sessions ranged from “Machine Learning & AI in Content Creation” to “UHD, HDR, 4K, High Frame Rate” to “Mission Critical: Project Artemis, Imaging from the Moon and Deep Space Imaging.” The latter featured two NASA employees and a live talk with astronauts on the International Space Station. It was very cool.

postPerspective’s coverage was also cool and included many sit-down interviews with those presenting at the show (including former astronaut and One More Orbit director Terry Virts as well as Todd Douglas Miller, the director of the Apollo 11 doc), SMPTE executives and long-standing members of the organization.

In addition to the sessions, manufacturers had the opportunity to show their tools on the exhibit floor, where one of our crews roamed with camera and mic in hand reporting on the newest tech.

Whether you missed the conference or experienced it firsthand, these exclusive interviews will provide a ton of information about SMPTE, standards, and the future of our industry, as well as just incredibly smart people talking about the merger of technology and creativity.

Enjoy our coverage!
