SMPTE's Barbara Lange: Standards Are More Critical Than Ever in this Technologically Advanced and Video Driven Environment
The number of operators and platforms operating in the content creation and distribution space has quickly increased the rate of innovation and the proliferation of new content formats. This creates a requirement to manage a complex array of content across the ecosystem in an effective and cost-efficient manner.
"Amazon, Netflix and other new players -- along with the traditionalists in broadcast and motion pictures – are exploring and implementing a wide array of new technologies that make content more engaging for consumers," says Lange.
That is why it is it's important for an organization like SMPTE -- which is made up of engineers, scientists and digital technologists – to elevate its efforts and activity to support the quality of motion images, regardless of where or how it is created or delivered.

"The number of operators and platforms operating in the content creation and distribution space has quickly increased the rate of innovation and the proliferation of new content formats," she says.
This creates a requirement to manage a complex array of content across the ecosystem in an effective and cost-efficient manner.
"Meanwhile, convergence is happening in many different aspects of our industry. Reconciling growing complexity with this convergence requires all of us to work together to make sure the industry continues to grow. That is why we need to invest in – and apply – standards across the entertainment ecosystem," says Lange.
