The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers has formed a new region in the U.K. The U.K. region will operate under the leadership of Bruce Devlin, chief media scientist at Dalet. Devlin had previously been appointed governor for Europe, Middle East, Africa, Central and South America region. Siegfried Foessel, head of the department of Moving Picture Technologies at Fraunhofer IIS, will assume the role. The SMPTE U.K. region reflects the growth of its section, which expanded from 83 members in 2012 to more than 500 this year. The SMPTE U.K. region has its first student chapter at Southampton Solent University.
