SMPTE ST 2067 — Interoperable Master Format (IMF)

Get Involved - Join TC 35PM

Overview 

IMF is a file-based media format that simplifies the delivery and storage of audio-visual masters intended for multiple territories and platforms. It is particularly well-adapted for delivery to today’s global content platforms. IMF works with any finished audio-visual masters, including long-form movies, episodic content, advertisements, short-form content… It is extensible, uses proven technologies and benefits from many open source and commercial implementations.

IMF is managed by Technology Committee 35PM
