Gaggioni in recognition of his contributions to the development of high-definition television (HDTV), wide color gamut (WCG), high-dynamic-range (HDR), and the Moving Pictures Experts Group (MPEG) compression systems. Gaggioni has served as session chair of conferences throughout the world in the areas of HDTV and video compression systems. He was chair of the technical groups on SMPTE 260M and 292M standards and worked with manufacturers and broadcasters for the use of HDR techniques in ultra-high-definition (UHD)/HD production applications. Gaggioni continues to give numerous presentations and courses on signal processing and contemporary video technologies at events around the world sponsored by SMPTE، ال هوليوود Professional Association (HPA), the IEEE, and the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP). He has earned a reputation as an excellent educator of new technologies.

Borer led the video compression team that developed the Dirac Pro compression system that subsequently became the SMPTE VC-2 standard. Most recently, Borer led the development of the Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) HDR television system. He holds 20 patents in the field of digital video processing.
ال James A. Lindner Archival Technology Medal, sponsored by James A. Lindner, الاعتراف بالتطورات التقنية الهامة أو المساهمات المتعلقة باختراع أو تطوير التكنولوجيا أو التقنيات أو سير العمل أو البنية التحتية للتخزين أو التخزين أو الحفاظ على جوهر محتوى الوسائط على المدى الطويل. سيتم تقديم جائزة 2018 إلى Robert J. Heiber in recognition of his contributions to the preservation and restoration of motion-picture and television sound. In addition to creating technologies and methodologies for the recovery of legacy motion-picture soundtracks and television programs, Heiber has created numerous programs to educate audio scholars on the history, protection, and restoration of moving-image sound and its importance. He has an outstanding record of teaching, lecturing, and advocating for the technology of media sound preservation at the academic and governmental levels worldwide.
ال Samuel L. Warner Memorial Medal, sponsored by Warner Bros., recognizes outstanding contributions in the design and development of new and improved methods and/or apparatus for motion-picture sound, at any step in the process. The award will be presented to David R. Schwind in recognition of his contributions in the area of acoustic design. In the creation of a soundtrack, one element that may be overlooked is the acoustic impact of the postproduction facilities, the mixing studio, and the scoring stage. Under the general umbrella of acoustic design, reverberation characteristic, decay smoothness, avoidance of specific room resonances, noise control, and sound isolation can all affect what a mixer hears and how he or she models the soundtrack. For the past three decades, Schwind has been unequaled as an acoustic designer. His projects include postproduction facilities at Skywalker Ranch, Pixar, Warner Bros., DreamWorks, Fox, Disney, and Technicolor-Paramount. In addition, his successes have led to design projects across the globe, including StageOne in Australia and TOHO in Japan.
ال Technicolor — Herbert T. Kalmus Medal, sponsored by Technicolor Inc., recognizes outstanding contributions that reflect a commitment to the highest standards of quality and innovation in motion-picture postproduction and distribution services. The award will be presented to Rod Bogart for his instrumental contributions to the design, implementation, and deployment of the industry-standard OpenEXR image format, a core enabling technology for high-dynamic-range (HDR) moviemaking. Bogart also contributed to the development and education of the virtual white point for digital cinema presentation, which allows for the authentic reproduction of filmmakers’ creative intent.
ال Workflow Systems Medal, sponsored by Leon D. Silverman, recognizes outstanding contributions related to the development and integration of workflows, such as integrated processes, end-to-end systems, or industry ecosystem innovations that enhance creativity, collaboration, and efficiency, or novel approaches to the production, postproduction, or distribution process. The award will be presented to Fabrice Bellard in recognition of his foundational and innovative work in creating Fast Forward Motion Picture Experts Group (FFmpeg), one of the most successful open-source media projects to date and an essential video and audio learning tool. The creation of FFmpeg provides a working reference architecture for digital video processing and format conversion, a critical component of information technology (IT)-based workflows. Bellard’s work has enabled a vast number of viewers to access media on a global scale in consumer products and has enabled countless IT-based digital video productions.
ال جائزة مجلة إلى مقدم الورقة الأكثر تميزا التي نشرت أصلا في SMPTE مجلة التصوير الحركة during the preceding calendar year. The award will be presented to Sean T. McCarthy for the article “A Biologically Inspired Approach to Making HDR Video Quality Assessment Easier,” published in the May/June 2017 issue of the مجلة.

ال إعلان رئاسي recognizes individuals of established and outstanding status and reputation in the motion-picture, television, and motion-imaging industries worldwide. This year two individuals will be recognized:
Phil Laven will receive the award in recognition of his significant contributions to the broadcast industry. His wide-ranging career at the BBC between 1966 and 1997 included serving as chief engineer R&D and controller of engineering policy, making him instrumental in leading the BBC’s policy on many technical initiatives, such as development and implementation of digital television and radio broadcasting in the U.K. In recognition of his contributions, he was awarded an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE). Between 1997 and 2007, he was director of the European Broadcast Union (EBU) Technical Department based in Geneva. From 2008 to 2016, Laven chaired the Digital Video Broadcasting (DVB) Steering Board. He also served as chair of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI)/EBU Joint Technical Committee on broadcasting for 14 years and took on numerous other roles, such as chair of the Future of Broadcast TV initiative and treasurer of the WorldDAB Forum.
John Ross will receive the award in recognition of his pioneering work in the development of production switchers, signal processing, chroma keying, and analog and digital systems design. In 1955, while still a teenager, he created an advanced vacuum-tube production switcher with wipes and keys, the first of its kind in Canada. In 1963, Ross founded the broadcasting equipment division of Central Dynamics Ltd., where he built the world’s first entirely solid-state production switcher and was granted a fundamental patent for the first chroma keyer to enable remote selection of any background color, rather than just blue. This invention directly led to the use of the green screen. He founded روس فيديو Ltd. in 1974, where he developed a series of production switchers incorporating many revolutionary features now in common use. He also developed the first card-based high-quality 10-bit digital 4:2:2-to-analog encoder and decoder, which were selected by NASA for use on the International Space Station. Ross is also known as a great mentor of engineers, with industry leaders counted among his students. He is a SMPTE Fellow, Officer of the Order of Canada, and was awarded Honorary Membership by IABM.
ال جائزة التميز في المعايير recognizes individuals or companies that have been actively involved in advancing the Society’s standards activities and processes. S. Merrill Weiss will receive this award in recognition of more than four decades of participation and more than three decades of leadership in the development of SMPTE’s standards. Weiss has served in the Society’s Standards Community continuously for over 40 years and has led many of the Society’s most important standards efforts, including the development of the component digital video production standards, the Archive eXchange Format (AXF) standards, and the underlying framework on which today’s digital video workflows are based. In addition to his technical contributions, Weiss is a SMPTE Fellow and has mentored many SMPTE Technology Committee (TC) participants who later made significant contributions to the Society’s work. He has written extensively about SMPTE’s standards efforts, explaining their value and utility to working engineers and practitioners throughout the industry.
