Open Services Alliance for Media (OSA) and SMPTE to Host Media Microservices Summit
11-12 May in New York, NY (Microsoft – Times Square)
Have you been frustrated at the lack of cross-vendor and cross-platform interoperability among microservice-based solutions in the media space? If yes, you’re not alone. Join your colleagues in an event focused on solving these challenges, quickly and effectively.
The OSA and SMPTE are pleased to announce a two-day summit, to be conducted May 11-12, in New York City (exact location TBC). All are invited to join us for a summit, focused on overcoming the challenges of media in the cloud, specifically focusing on microservices.
A comprehensive review of the OSA’s purpose, aims and its accomplishments will lead things off. We will provide an overview of the output of its first two initiatives by SMPTE (SMPTE 2125 – IMF Registration API, and SMPTE 2126 – Microservices Status Reporting & Logging). We will also review the most recent contributions from the OSA to SMPTE, focused on a Vocabulary for Media Microservices, and a Job Processing Architecture, as well as ongoing activities around Privacy and Security.
Potential future initiatives will then take center stage. Attendees will be invited to propose projects meeting the OSA’s guiding principles of solving media microservices challenges which are highly impactful and realistically solvable in a reasonable amount of time. We expect this will set the priorities for the Alliance for the remainder of 2022 and beyond.
While we’d prefer to see you there in person, remote attendance will be possible. Please register here, indicating how you plan to attend. There is no cost to attend, and all interested parties are welcome, but advance registration is required.
The Open Services Alliance for Media (OSA) is a global alliance of organizations, of which SMPTE is a founding member, with the common goal of enabling open, interoperable services across all aspects of the media ecosystem. We support establishment of standards, best practices, registers, industry awareness and education, and any other tools at our disposal to foster cross-platform and cross-application interoperability.
SMPTE is the global society of media professionals, technologists, and engineers working in the digital entertainment industry. The Society fosters a diverse and engaged membership from both the technology and creative communities, delivering vast educational offerings, technical conferences, and exhibitions, the SMPTE Motion Imaging Journal, and access to a rich network of colleagues essential to their career success. As an internationally recognized standards organization, SMPTE also provides a vital technical framework of engineering standards and guidelines that allow the seamless creation, management, and delivery of media for art, entertainment, and education worldwide.
Our monthly meetings remain remote attendance only due to the current global environment. Details are on our members-only OSA Teams channel.
