The Society of Television Engineers

Welcome to the Society of Television Engineers Web Site.  Established in 1940, STE is an organization unique to Los Angeles, Hollywood and the surrounding areas.  Its members include key individuals involved in television broadcast engineering and the manufacture of television broadcast equipment.  The purpose of the STE is to provide a common ground for people in the video, broadcasting and related technologies to meet up, trade experiences and learn about new products and methods.  If you are working in video production, broadcast, post production, or systems design/integration, you will find others with similar backgrounds at the STE.



STE dinner meetings are usually held on the third Thursday of each month except for July and August. Meeting activities include a social cocktail hour, dinner, a table-by-table industry event reports and introduction of guests. This is followed by a formal program that covers new or interesting broadcast, production and post production systems, standards, products, or techniques.  Meetings are open to anyone interested in the field.

Compliance Monitoring

Topics of Discussion:

Compliance monitoring and logging should be more than just making sure your signals follow all the rules.  There are things you should expect which will help your team be better informed, more efficient, and get increased value out of your solution.  Let’s explore these concepts together as we also discuss the evolution of mere logging into Smart Logging.
