SMPTE and SET announce new cooperation agreement

On April 11, the Brazilian Society of Television Engineering (SET) and the Society of Motion Pictures and Television Engineers (SMPTE) met at the NAB Show to discuss a new cooperation agreement aimed at strengthening relations between the two entities and increasing the benefits to its members.

The president of SET, Carlos Fini, former President Fernando Bittencourt and the general director Olímpio José Franco met SMPTE President Patrick Griffis and executive director Barbara Lange.

“SET and SMPTE are developing new joint actions for their members, aiming to increase participation in webinars, encourage access to technical content, standards and discounts on events and other activities,” said Franco.

“We will announce at SET EXPO 2019 the terms of the new agreement and the new advantages for SMPTE and SET member”, he announced.


For more than a century, the people of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers® (SMPTE®, pronounced “simp-tee”) have sorted out the details of many significant advances in media and entertainment technology, from the introduction of “talkies” and color television to HD and UHD (4K, 8K) TV. Since its founding in 1916, the Society has received an Oscar® and multiple Emmy® Awards for its work in advancing moving-imagery engineering across the industry. SMPTE has developed thousands of standards, recommended practices, and engineering guidelines, more than 800 of which are in force today. SMPTE Time Code and the ubiquitous SMPTE Color Bars are just two examples of the Society’s notable work. Now in its second century, the Society is shaping the next-generation of standards and providing education for the industry to ensure interoperability as the industry evolves further into IT- and IP-based workflows.
