During the SMPTE Awards Gala on Thursday, 24 October, Wozniak will introduce new SMPTE Fellows and present them with plaques recognizing their achievements. Fifteen new SMPTE Fellows will be elevated during the SMPTE Fellows Luncheon on Monday, 21 October, and then recognized once again during the Awards Gala. The honor of SMPTE Fellow is conferred on individuals who have, through their proficiency and contributions to the motion-picture, television, or related industries, attained an outstanding rank among engineers or executives in media and entertainment.
SMPTE's annual conference is the world's premier forum for the exploration of media and entertainment technology. In addition to the Fellows Luncheon and Awards Gala, SMPTE 2019 will offer a wealth of technical sessions and exhibitions of advanced technologies, as well as special events that provide numerous opportunities for face-to-face interaction between attendees, exhibitors, and speakers.
