Season 4, episode 1
In the fourth season of ‘Bruce’s Shorts’, Bruce Devlin takes a look at the Interoperable Master Format (IMF). This episode explains the IMF basics. A single TV or movie title is transformed into multiple content versions (airline edits, special edition, languages…) These versions, which share common assets sourced from high-quality source masters, are ultimately made available to multiple distribution channels (Internet, optical media, broadcast…) across multiple territories and over the span of many months to over a year. IMF is aimed at improving the automation for multi-version production. This episode explains the IMF basics.. IMF has now been standardised by the SMPTE as ST 2067.
