Congratulations to Yvonne Thomas, our Strategic Technologist, who has been elevated to Fellow status by SMPTE.
The individuals that SMPTE name as Fellows are recognised as having made a significant contribution to the motion picture, television and surrounding industries; they also have attained an outstanding rank among engineers or executives in media and entertainment.
Yvonne has been active in the industry over the years.

Commenting on her accolade, Yvonne said:
“I’m honoured to be a recognised as a SMPTE Fellow. Looking at this year’s Fellows selection, it is great to see the next SMPTE generation coming through who will continue to contribute a lot to the advancing of the media and entertainment fields. As a Fellow, I’d definitely encourage more diversity and hopefully this honour will help make way for more of this in the industry.”
