Unleashing the benefits of file-based content thanks to IMF

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!

Places are limited, so register today! Cost is only $299 per person for the full day seminar, or $285 for SMPTE or AICE members! Deadline for registration is one week prior to each seminar.

Mesclado has put a program together with Medianswers to look at all the business, application and technical benefits moving to a real IT-based workflow.

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:

  • 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 for the cinema and broadcast industries
  • 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.
