The 2018 version of Cine Gear has come and gone (insert sad face) but not before the camera and gear makers released all kinds of new and exciting announcements about their products.

The Efficiencies of IMF

Industry Announcements / Events Monday, March 19, 2018
SMPTE was hosting a major push on the IMF specification (SMPTE ST2067) with the Digital Production Partnership (DPP) out of England. The IMF specification was created to make the Interoperable Master Format (IMF), interoperable, so vendors and customers could use it.
