  • Welcome - Barbara Lange & Hanna Laurentz
  • Efficient versioning for film and series thanks to IMF - Francois Abbe
    • IMF (Interoperable Master Format) work started in 2011 in SMPTE.
    • We now have a series of standards, a wider adoption throughout the industries, also stemming from the collaboration with the UK-based Digital Production Partnership (UK)
    • Major broadcasters are already announcing the adoption of the “IMF for Broadcast and Online specification, also known as “SMPTE TSP 2121:2018 IMF Application ProRes (DPP)”, into their workflows
    • In this session, attendees will learn from Francois Abbe how IMF increases efficiency in post-production, distribution, broadcast, OTT and VOD.
  • Working with ST-2110 in Real-World Applications - Alexander Sandström and Paul Macklin
    • As video production increasingly moves to IP and cloud computing, it is imperative for all "links" in the supply chain to be familiar with and adhere to the newly adopted standards for video over IP.  
    • ST-2110 is in actuality an entire "suite" of important specifications, and this session will also elaborate on the evolution from the original EBU/VSF roadmap and efforts with 2022-6/2022-7, via TR-04/TR-03, into ST2110 and its current and developing substandards.
    • Sandström and Macklin will also discuss principles of switching routes in IP and controlling and ensuring interoperability with the AMWA NMOS IS-04, IS-05 and IS-06 standards.
  • SMPTE Nordic Section information - Eivind Sandstrand
    • Quick introduction to NCE Media and our work to revive the SMPTE Nordic Section
    • Open discussion with ideas for future meetings, goals, topics for presentations, resources, etc.
  • SVT Facilities Tour
    • Adde Granberg will lead the attendees on a quick tour of the SVT facilities, answering questions along the way
