Interoperable Master Format (IMF)

Publish » Non-Linear Publishing » Non-Linear Publishing Services » OTT/OVP managed service platforms »

IMF support within CLEAR includes the ability to create deliverables for different platforms (Netflix, iTunes etc.) and specifications (like DPP) from an IMF package. CLEAR also includes the world’s first IMF Player that provides the ability to preview, playback, review and distribute over a streaming proxy a Composition Playlist (CPL) with all its essences including video, audio and captions. This enables collaboration and decision making in the workflow using proxies without having to necessarily access the original IMF package in high-res each time a CPL has to be played back. The IMF support in CLEAR is built using the product’s native Hybrid Cloud architecture that supports distributed workflows, and allows packaging and delivery of IMF packages from remote locations, public cloud infrastructure (Amazon/Azure) and customer premises.
