The Fandom of the Opera: Wednesday, April 21, 2021, 6:45 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada), Zoom
Opera & Media Technology… Pre-and Post-Pandemic
OPEN TO ALL, STUDENTS MOST ESPECIALLY WELCOME !
SMPTE NEW ENGLAND SECTION MEMBERS AND FRIENDS
Mark Schubin asks… Do you use stereo sound ? A lighting dimmer ? A parabolic microphone ?
You can thank OPERA !
Arguably, even newscasts and sportscasts owe their existence to OPERA.
Prior to the pandemic, OPERA was involved in every aspect of media technology, from the first bootleg recording (in 1888) to virtual reality and Google Glass. When the pandemic hit, OPERA houses may have shut down but not OPERA itself, which has actively made use of everything from live-motion capture and computer graphics to Zoom to snail mail.
- How does the Metropolitan Opera control the exit lighting in thousands of cinemas on all seven continents of the world?
- How does “A-V perspective” affect lip-sync?
All will be explained in detail at the New England Section SMPTE meeting with Mark Schubin on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, via Zoom at 6:45 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada).
