IMF Studio

Creation, Playback and Validation of Interoperable Master Packages

© Fraunhofer IIS

We offer the new software suite IMF Studio for the creation, playback and quality assurance of IMPs, which has been derived from our well-known software suite easyDCP for the creation of Digital Cinema Packages (DCPs). Due to a very flexible subscription licensing model, IMF Studio enables users to create complex workflows in local and cloud-based environments.

The Interoperable Master Format (IMF) is a universal, file-based solution for the exchange of high-quality image and sound data as well as subtitles in a common format. Broadcasters, film producers and streaming services use IMF packages for the data exchange during production and post-production as well as for the delivery of content. Furthermore, an IMP can serve as master and source package for creating various distribution formats.
