The media industry’s business network



With more and more versions of each piece of content being produced for more countries and delivered to more devices, it’s become highly important to develop more efficient workflows for creating, storing and exchanging versions.

Technology is making the world seem ever smaller, yet perhaps now more than ever, your audiences want their locality and their culture reflected in the media they consume. It’s increasingly the case that you can’t be a global player unless you’re a local player too. IMF can help.

Publication of the DPP IMF for Broadcast & Online specification gives us a fantastic head start in creating automated workflows to ensure that our costs are kept under control as versioning expands.
