Regulatory Business Committee Update Goran Stojmenovik, LIPA / Barco  
Regulatory KeynoteDr. Karl Schulmeister, Seibersdorf Labor GmbH Karl Schulmeister holds a Ph.D. in biophysics on modelling of the risk for laser induced retinal injury. Karl is a consultant on laser and lamp product safety at the Seibersdorf Laboratories in Austria with 25 years experience. He was project leader for the latest edition of the international laser safety standard IEC 60825-1 and the recent European amendment. Over the last ten years, his group developed a computer model to predict injury thresholds for the retina, which was used to support the 1 meter testing distance in IEC 62471-5 for projectors. Karl has been serving as consultant for LIPA since 2013.

New Light Steering and HDR SpecificationsTom Bert, BarcoThe pandemic has been disruptive for the cinema market in many ways; but it has also spurred an increased interest in differentiating formats. High Dynamic Range (HDR) projection is an opportunity which has many eyeballs on it: both from studios, creatives, exhibitors, manufacturers and movie-goers. In this presentation we go more indepth in where this comes from, the forces at work and what needs to happen in order to make it a true success in cinema.Tom Bert (°1979) joined Barco in 2006. After initial roles in research & innovation, he moved to the cinema department in 2010 where he worked in Product Marketing and Product Management. Since 2021 he heads up the Product team, overlooking the portfolio of projectors, servers, audio and the software suite around it. He holds an Ph.D. from Ghent University and an MBA from the Vlerick Business School. He is a board member of the European Digital Cinema Forum (EDCF) and of the Digital Subcommittee of SAWA, the Global Cinema Advertising Association.

Here he focused his expertise in photonics to sustain and innovate ClayPaky product portfolio through technology roadmaps harmonized with  continuous customer and technology market explorations.
Keynote: DVLED Update – Progress & ChallengesPete Ludé, Mission Rock Digital / LIPA Co-founderWithin the last few years, a new display technology has established a toehold is several market applications currently dominated by laser illuminated projectors.  Direct-View LED (DVLED) technology allows the projector and screen to be replaced with a direct emissive display surface, thereby providing some unique advantages, while introducing new challenges.  DVLED’s are now being used in several trial locations for digital cinema, and adoption is expected to increase in the next few years.  Although DVLED will not replace LIPs any time soon, this presentation will review the current progress in adoption, potential customer benefits and the key technical issues being addressed.Pete Ludé is prominent engineering consultant in advanced imaging and sound. He serves at CTO of Mission Rock Digital, a San Francisco-based engineering firm specializing in next-generation media including cinema display technology, virtual production, immersive sound, and interchange pipelines for plenoptic (light field) imaging. Ludé is past president of SMPTE, and a SMPTE fellow. He currently serves as co-chair of the ASC Plenoptic Imaging committee, Chairman of IDEA – the Immersive Digital Experiences Alliance, and is a frequent speaker on the future of cinema, volumetric imaging systems and advanced display technology.
