Date & Time

Session Type
Bruce Devlin Thomas Bause Mason
Join Bruce Devlin & Thomas Bause Mason as we take a look at the changing face of the media technology industry and explore a future in which Open Source, Standards and Cloud fulfill different, but essential roles in creating an interoperable global eco-system. We look at why nation-state policy frameworks are still important and how massive, well-funded Open Source projects are vital but not the only way in which global interoperability can be achieved. We also look at what SMPTE is doing to foster active special-interest groups and to assist the promotion of their work onto a global stage.
