Pittsburgh, SMPTE, & Before by Mark Schubin

November 4th, 2016 | No Comments | Posted in Download, Schubin Cafe, Today's Special

This is SMPTE’s centennial year. Did you know the society might not exist if not for Pittsburgh? The same might also be said for the whole motion-image industry! Carnegie Mellon, the University of Pittsburgh, Westinghouse, PPG, and even Heinz played roles.
Join multiple Emmy-award-winning SMPTE Life Fellow Mark Schubin as he provides a Pittsburgh-oriented illustrated talk about the origins of SMPTE, standards, movies, and television. Image scanning in 1843? Opto-electronic conversion in 1839? An item about a Pittsburgh-based television proposal in American Manufacturer and Iron World in 1880? Watch and be amazed!
Recorded November 2, 2016 at the Fairmont-Pittsburgh Hotel, Pittsburgh, PA.

The Fandom of the Opera

The Fandom of the Opera: How the Audience for a Four-Century-Old Art Form Helped Create the Modern Media World

A National Opera Week event at the National Opera Center, 330 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY on October 29, 2013.

Do you think television was introduced in 1939?  There was an opera broadcast on TV in 1934, and the idea of live televised operas dates back to 1877.

The first electronic home entertainment (1880) was opera.  The first stereo sound transmission (1881) was opera.  Consumer headphones, pay-cable, movies — even newscasts and sportscasts — were all invented for opera.  Really!

Watch this brief National Opera Week event to learn some of the details.  17th-century sound transmission?  18th-century motion-picture projection and robots?
