Past meetings of the Society
April 2012

SMPTE Connecticut has organized a New England presentation for qualified audio & video associations of possibly the best sounding theatre experience possible in a home. It is a private residence, the largest in New England, with a 103-seat theatre. Because space is EXTREMELY limited, an e-mail notice will be sent to you on how to register for the event; a prompt response on the 14th is the only way to obtain a possible seat. Bob Miller will coordinate transportation to CT.
