In this talk from Andy Wilson at Northern Waves 2018, we find that IMF, the Interoperable Master Format is not just about technology, but if anything it’s more about improving workflows today with an eye to being the foundation of future workflows and business models.
Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary release which needed 106 versions for its simultaneous world-wide release forms the example which shows how IMF helps broadcasters reduce duplicate copies, support versioning workflows, maintain quality and much more.
Mastering as a new route to save storage, costs and time – as well as look at automation as part of the process. This introductory session outlines the business benefits and use cases that the DPP have developed with global broadcasters and online players.
