Pictionary, Standards and MXF Interoperability
Posted: Thursday, December 04, 2014
Four weeks ago, I posted in this blog about the IRT MXF plugfest, the new MXF profiles that were published in Germany this year by the ARD and ZDF, and how these new profiles would bring forth a new era in interoperability. This week, the first results of that plugfest and reaction from some of the end users and vendors were presented at a conference on file-based production also hosted by the IRT in Munich.
 
As usual, the results were fascinating. As with all statistics, they could be manipulated to back up any point you wanted to make, but for me there were a couple of highlights.

Taking MXF Interoperability to the next level
Posted: Thursday, November 06, 2014
Next week, in a corner of the Bayerischer Rundfunk campus in Munich, Germany, likely without much fanfare, something fairly monumental will take place – the IRT MXF PlugFest. Now in its ninth year, this event brings together vendors in the media and entertainment industry to facilitate MXF interoperability tests. Following each event, the IRT (Institute für Rundfunktechnik) publishes a report on the levels of overall interoperability, standard compliance, decoder robustness, and the common errors and interoperability issues – you can download the previous reports here. All of the previous eight reports make interesting reading (particularly if read in order), but none has been more greatly anticipated than the report due from this ninth PlugFest.
