SMPTE, in association with the Institut für Rundfunktechnik GmbH (IRT), is conducting a face-to-face IMF Plugfest on May 29, 2018 at the IRT in Munich.
The test subjects will be:

The HPA is pleased to announce the creation of a User Group for the Interoperable Master Format (IMF).
The IMF UG brings together content owners, service providers, retailers and equipment/software vendors to enhance and promote the use of IMF globally. The IMF UG will discuss technical operational issues that arise in practical implementation, conduct interoperability testing, develop best practices, and educate the industry on the use of IMF. In its initial UG meetings, IMF UG members will mutually agree upon specific goals and priorities, and establish timelines in which to accomplish these tasks.
The objective is to have quarterly meetings, with two meetings taking place in Europe and two in North America.
