Having just wrapped up another successful leg of our IMF Roadtrip, we look forward to future opportunities to help educate and even entertain folks regarding the Interoperable Master Format (IMF).

The video and description below should provide you with a glimpse into the format and content of these seminars.

You’ve moved from video to IT infrastructures, you’ve heard about the many benefits file-based workflows should deliver. Now what?

MXF files were presented as a tape replacement. Today many of us are trapped: good things from the linear videotapes are gone… but what about the many benefits IT based environments can bring?

Unleashing all the potential requires switching over to a new model. This new model is about getting mindsets to move away from videotapes. Welcome to components, packages and IMF!

This one-day seminar will get you up to speed on what IMF is, and how it can help you and your organization not only survive, but thrive in the ever-changing area of file-based workflows. This interactive session will show IMF as it can be used in the real world:

  • Solutions from the 20+ vendors that support it
  • 10+ practical demonstrations of implementations
  • 15+ use cases

This session is designed to provide (in a fun and interactive environment):

  • An overall understanding of the IMF standard
  • A focus on the most interesting aspects of IMF, which make it so appealing
  • A focus on the business and technical fundamentals required to use the IMF standard. Course participants will gain an understanding of the basics of interoperability and versioning problems using IMF.
