SMPTE to Receive 2013 Technology and Engineering Emmy(R) Award for Work on HD-SDI Standard

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — July 31, 2013 — The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), the worldwide leader in motion-imaging standards and education for the communications, media, entertainment, and technology industries, will be presented with an Emmy(R) Award for Technology and Engineering for 2013 by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. The honor is being conferred upon SMPTE in recognition of the society’s work on development, standardization, and productization of the High-Definition Serial Digital Interface (HD-SDI) standard.

“For an organization such as ours, the Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering is not only a tremendous honor, but also confirmation that we’re successfully carrying out our mission as the leading technical society for the motion-imaging industry,” said SMPTE Executive Director Barbara Lange. “We’re very proud of the work our members have done in advancing the HD-SDI standard, as well as the value that the standard itself brings to the field.”

This Technology and Engineering Emmy Award recognizes the work behind the SMPTE 292 standard for high-definition digital video transmission. The SMPTE 292 standard is the foundation for the family of serial digital interface (SDI) standards for transmitting uncompressed HD video signals. The SMPTE 292 standard has proven to be robust and versatile, and a large number of additional standards have been created based on SMPTE’s original work. The derivative standards address higher data-rate versions and the use of multiple interfaces for advanced applications such as D-Cinema connectivity. These derivative standards have also provided for packaging and identification of many additional signal types, making the HD-SDI standard the workhorse of high-speed synchronous communication. The HD-SDI interface standard is one of more than 650 engineering documents that have been published by SMPTE.

The Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards will be presented Jan. 9, 2014, in conjunction with the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

Further information about SMPTE and its many educational programs is available online at www.smpte.org.
