AmberFin will announce ICR support for Interoperable Mastering Format at NAB

AmberFin will announce ICR support for Interoperable Mastering Format at NAB | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

AmberFin will also announce its strategy for iCR's support of IMF (Interoperable Master Format) a new SMPTE file format designed to create a single - standardized - master file for distribution of content between businesses into multiple territories.

"With IMF, you won't need to create a thousand copies of the same content to suit different audiences, formats and geographies.  What the standard does is separate the content into various ingredients or components (namely, AS02 MXF media files), a number of ‘recipes’ (Composition Play Lists) and a selection of instructions (or Output Program Lists) appropriate for each of those audiences. IMF is designed to take the right mix of ingredients, the right recipe and a tailored set of instructions to create a dedicated version for each market, without having to duplicate files. From the end-user perspective, IMF will not be something they ever see, but which will bring significant efficiencies to their workflow; iCR will make it so boring, that it will all just work," adds Bruce Devlin.

Fraunhofer IIS Introduces IMF Software Components for File-Based Workflows at IBC 2012

Fraunhofer IIS Introduces IMF Software Components for File-Based Workflows at IBC 2012 | Video Breakthroughs | Scoop.it

Fraunhofer IIS, the world’s renowned source for audio and multimedia technologies, today at IBC announces new packaging, play back and transcoding components for the new Interoperable Master Format (IMF). Fraunhofer IIS´s new software components will further enable new post production products for processing as well as extend the capabilities of existing tools for universal distribution.

 

Media production is gradually transitioning from tape-based to file-based workflows for processing and distribution in order to save time and money. To aid in this transition, IMF was developed on the initiative of the film industry and studios. The IMF is a file-based format in which high resolution image and audio data, auxiliary data and subtitles can be stored for processing in postproduction under a so-called Interoperable Master Package (IMP).
