Leverage Iris for IMF
The professional media ecosystem is complex and the industry is faced with new challenges with respect to the evolution to file-based workflows. Media professionals are challenged with supporting a vast number of different media formats to support various editorial or localized versions of content across numerous different distribution channels.
The Interoperable Master Format (IMF) is a standardized international file-based data interchange structure for packaging distribution quality audio and visual content. IMF is built around a core framework that includes essence containers, audio and timed text essence formats, descriptive metadata, playlists, delivery logic and more. It’s estimated that IMF will result in 95% commonality in editorial and technical versions for repurposing to different distribution channels while minimizing redundancy and storage requirements.
How Iris can help with IMF workflow:
Iris can play IMF packages on a traditional windows based computer!
Iris automatically checks packaged IMF XML files to confirm development is in accordance with the rules
Iris remembers what’s been previously checked when new versions and languages are finished
What this means for you:
Minimizes additional investment in expensive IMF video editing equipment to view the final packages
Saves time in quality control review when new files are completed
Reduces storage by avoiding redundancy
