With the aim to serve specific broadcast and OTT needs for the exchange of IMF (Interoperable Master Format) packages and the preparation of AS-11 X series and AS-11 UK DPP V1.1 Air Masters, IMF Application DPP (ProRes) uses the ProRes 422HQ video codec. The MIST mastering solution already includes the additional features required in the specification, like the sidecar files that contain the specific metadata for the upcoming AS-11 X1 UHD Air Master delivery specification, as well as the OPL (Output Profile List) defining the process needed to obtain an AS-11 file from the IMF package.

“An unprecedented level of industry collaboration has been involved in the creation of this specification, and DPP Members, including Marquise Technologies, have played a pivotal role in that work”, says Rowan de Pomerai, DPP Head of Delivery & Growth. “In the coming weeks the DPP Test Lab will launch certification for IMF Application DPP (ProRes) compliance, to support implementation across the industry. We are delighted that MIST will be among the first products to be tested.”

Marquise Technologies’ ICE Reference QC Player and TORNADO Transcoding engine will also support IMF Application DPP  (ProRes).

All workflows will be presented at IBC 2018, Marquise Technologies’ booth is 7.D49.
