With the Sony Media Technology Center, Sony has made a long-term commitment to taking a more active role in enhancement of Skills of Content Creators and Broadcast Professionals and the filmmaking community.How the upgraded SMTC is better
The upgraded SMTC will be a showcase for Sony’s “Networked Live” which is designed to transform production workflows. It includes Nevion Virtuoso a key component of Networked Live which provides functionality to the Media transport and Hybrid Processing & Operations building blocks and VideoIPath which is a comprehensive orchestration and SDN control system.

The facility also features a theatre equipped for screenings of 4K content using Sony digital cinema projectors.

SMTC previously relaunched in India in 2016 and since then, SMTC has been providing training to all leading media professionals and students of WWI. With this collaboration between SMTC and WWI, the first phase of 4K cinema market development has been established successfully.
