IABM Detailed Report From the SMPTE March 2019 Standards Meetings

This SMPTE Standards meeting round was hosted by SMPTE HQ in White Plains, US, 11 – 14 March.

The IABM’s detailed report from this meeting round can be found on this IABM Technology website page. If you would prefer just an executive summary, there is one on the same page.

As usual, the meetings covered a very wide range of broadcast and media standards.

Work has started on a second SMPTE Technical Specification (a new fast-track document type recently introduced by SMPTE). It is on the subject of IMF for DPP application (JPEG 2000) and it expands the use of the Interoperable Mastering Format for professional broadcast and broadband work. There is also new work to map 4k and 8k HEVC into MXF files.
