Telestream has launched Vantage IMF Producer, enabling automatic creation of IMF (Interoperable Master Format) packages from Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
IMF packages are the preferred method to deliver show masters to companies like Netflix, 20th Century Studios and Disney, the company said. The SMPTE standard provides a single, interchangeable master file format and structure for the distribution of content between businesses around the world.
Part of the Vantage Media Processing Platform, IMF Producer automates the creation of all files required in an IMF package from a single output render of an Adobe Premiere Pro timeline. Editors can create additional sequences that become supplemental IMF packages containing different versions of audio, subtitles, edit points and Dolby Vision HDR metadata.
Telestream director of product planning Scott Matics said: “The ability to manage IMF workflows in an application like Adobe Premiere Pro is an economical and highly powerful way of managing IMF supplemental package requirements.
“Creating IMF Packages that properly conform to specifications is a complex endeavour, and by automating the task, we ensure that humans and computers focus on the skills they are best at.”
