THOUSAND OAKS, California, June 21, 2017 – GrayMeta, a leading provider of professional media players and metadata solutions for content owners, today announced several feature enhancements of GrayMeta Iris. Iris enables media professionals to quickly and accurately collaborate and deliver all forms of professional file content through the production lifecycle from asset acquisition, post-production on through to approval and distribution.

GrayMeta Iris is a studio grade media player and quality control tool that can load multiple playlists and play all professional media file types, including 4K/HDR and IMF packages.
