Archimedia to Discuss Technical Advances in MXF Implementations at SMPTE 2013
October 03, 2013 --
Archimedia Technology, a new company whose technology and applications bridge the gap between content producers and their archives without loss of quality, today announced that Chief Marketing Officer Josef Marc and Chief Technology Officer Chi-Long Tsang will present a paper at the SMPTE 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, the premier annual event for motion-imaging and media technology, production, operations, and the allied arts and sciences. The 30-minute presentation will take place on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at noon and is based the paper "Archives -- It's a retrieval problem, not a storage problem."
SMPTE 2013 draws elite and world-renowned technology thought leaders from motion picture studios, broadcast and distribution networks, production and postproduction communities, software companies, systems integrators, manufacturers, display technologies, distribution providers, over-the-top providers, and others leading the evolving motion-imaging industry.
Marc, Tsang, and co-authors Victor Steinberg of VideoQ Inc. and Maxim Levkov of Artek Media International Inc., will illustrate technical advances in MXF implementations through laboratory observations of MXF video clips from multivendor sources alongside mathematically generated test patterns, master- and archival-grade video content, and an MXF metadata viewer. The presenters will focus especially on reformatting JPEG 2000, AVI, MOV, and uncompressed master/archive files into MXF for interchange and preservation.
