Event Details: 

Why are there so many file formats and does it matter? Bruce Devlin looks at MXF, BXF, AXF, IMF and others which are increasingly important across TV, Film and Digital Media by explaining their history and how they are now starting to interact - with an eye on making that interaction positive.

Walking through the history of their proliferation and then consolidation Bruce explains why there are so many formats and sub-formats looking and why requirements change.

What will happen to the formats in the future? Converge, diverge or don't care?

And finally…will the cloud make it all go away?
