DC Partner Jim Burger was recently elected to the Society of Motion Picture Engineers (SMPTE) Board of Governors, which helps run the worldwide organization and move forward its many initiatives. Attorneys are rarely elected to the board, which is a testament to his highly-regarded reputation among the members. In addition to being a long-standing SMPTE member, Jim has been a featured speaker for 20 years at the annual Tech Retreat co-sponsored by SMPTE and the Hollywood Professional Association (HPA).
“SMPTE is a critical asset to the movie industry, and I am honored to be part of its governing board,” stated Burger. “I look forward to working with this international group of experts.” Founded in 1916, the Oscar- and Emmy Award-winning SMPTE is the preeminent leader in the advancement of the art, science, and craft of the image, sound, and metadata ecosystem worldwide.
Among its 7,000 members are Amazon, Blackmagic Design, CBS, Disney/ABC/ESPN, Dolby Laboratories, Ericsson, Fox Entertainment Group, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Paramount Pictures, Sony Electronics, and Time Warner. HPA is the trade association serving businesses and individuals who provide expertise, support, tools and infrastructure for production, post production, distribution, and archiving of motion pictures, television, commercials, and other media content.
