(17 March 2015) IEEE announces a partnership with 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. With this partnership, IEEE will host the SMPTE Digital Library within the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
The SMPTE Digital Library includes the peer-reviewed SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, proceedings from SMPTE conferences, and more than 800 standards documents including recommended practices and engineering guidelines dating back to 1916—over 20,000 documents in all.
With nearly 100 years of motion-imaging standards leadership, SMPTE is the innovator of iconic standards for high-quality content, as well as those that are facilitating the transition to an Internet Protocol (IP)-based multiscreen world. This includes many critical industry standards such as the SMPTE Color Bar© Television Test Patterns, SMPTE Time Code©, and SMPTE Timed Text©. Recent standards defining ultra-high definition (UHD) and high dynamic range (HDR) immersive audio, among others, ensure quality and interoperability for technologies within the communications, media, and entertainment industries.
SMPTE standards, articles, and papers will complement over 3 million articles from some of the world’s most highly cited technical publications currently found in IEEE Xplore. Additionally, through this agreement, SMPTE content will reach a wider audience of more than 3 million technical professionals who visit IEEE Xplore each month.
