The first compatible-color TV show seen at home was an opera. The earliest sync-sound movie is of opera music. Thomas Edison’s earliest patent filing for movies lists opera as their only purpose. The earliest publication about television describes today’s live opera transmissions to theaters worldwide. The composer of the opera “The Barber of Seville” transmitted an image by wire in 1860. The earliest photographic motion-picture patent was issued in 1852 to the person in charge of electrical effects at the Paris Opera. And the earliest projected moving images might have been seen at an opera in Hamburg in 1726! Why? Why has opera played such a strong role in the development of motion-image media, from 18th-century cranked magic-lantern slides to 21st-century digital image warping with depth-plane selection and ultra-high-definition streaming with user-controlled view selection? Join multiple-Emmy-award-winning SMPTE Life Fellow Mark Schubin, engineer-in-charge of The Metropolitan Opera: Live in HD for this free National Opera Week event.
