Prior to joining StudioLab, she served as Executive Director of Product Development for the 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios) Advanced Technology & Engineering Group, which explored new technologies; developed the requirements and workflow in production, postproduction, and home distribution; and contributed to various technical standards.

She earned a 2015 International Standard Development Award for her achievements as co-editor of ISO/IEC 14496-10 (Eighth Edition) Information Technology – Coding of Audio-Visual Objects – Part 10: Advanced Video Coding (AVC) and received numerous Patent Originator of Implemented Innovation Awards for her work at Sony.

‘Sally has a great deal of experience with international standards development and has made significant contributions both as a participant and as a leader,’ says SMPTE Executive Director, David Grindle. ‘She understands how standards bodies function, and she works well with colleagues to move standards work forward. In her role as Standards Vice President, she brings a fresh perspective and forward-looking vision that will help SMPTE deliver standards in a model that benefits both the society and the larger media technology community.’

‘It’s an exciting time to be part of the standards community as a leader,’ Hattori says. ‘I feel I can bring a different mindset to the work and help the society have a conversation about new publishing workflows and business models that can bring greater transparency and allow us to make SMPTE standards more open and valuable to the industry as a whole.’
