SMPTE unites media and tech, showcases IP

The future of media, content creation and technology will converge at one of the longest-running trade shows in the media sector, SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), held in Sydney in July. The long-standing conference has established a reputation as being the hub of ideas where many significant advances in media and entertainment technology are discussed and debated.


The 2019 edition of the show focuses on all aspects of the creation, distribution and consumption of media, entertainment and technology and showcasing the leaders and disrupters in media technology and solutions.

Australian IP solutions innovator CombiTel has been a veteran of the SMPTE conference. CombiTel MD Eugene Razbash described the forum as a key local event for the Australian industry to discuss innovations and applications of current and future developments in media, content creation and technology.

CombiTel will be announcing the latest release of its Omniscreen Pilot software, an enterprise TV and digital signage application server.

The integrative technology platform can be deployed as an appliance or utilised in the Cloud as a SaaS offering.

The latest feature which has developed in line with market demand include advanced user authentication supporting targeted content delivery which makes it ideal for use in hotels, hospitality and health care and education facilities.

It also addresses the needs of modern multi-tenant Government buildings and campuses with new features that are ideal for law enforcement or security applications.

SMPTE will stage an IP Showcase for the first time this year, in conjunction with the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) and the IABM.
