The Interoperable Master Format is a SMPTE standard for the interchange of multi-version, finished audio-visual content. How relevant is it for broadcasters?
The EBU IMF-TV Group – together with the Digital Production Partnership (DDP) and the North American Broadcasters Association (NABA) – has investigated the potential use cases for IMF in broadcasting workflows and are supporting the creation of applications that meet their members' requirements.
This work is part of the EBU Strategic Programme on Video Systems. Especially see the EBU IMF-TV Group.
