Mastering system MIST to support IMF App #5 ACES
Allowing the long-term archiving of ACES final master files

Geneva, March 28th 2018 - Being a pioneer in both the support of ACES color pipeline and IMF workflows, it was a natural step for Marquise Technologies to rapidly implement the just released standard ST 2067-50 IMF Application #5,  permitting the long-term archival of ACES content using the benefits of an IMF architecture.

MIST provides ACES productions with a truthful color pipeline from dailies to archive and more: it is now possible to fill the gap between the color grade for digital cinema and the one for IMF for home distribution, by simply applying the corresponding ACES Output Transforms to create as many versions needed from the archival master in IMF: DCP, UHD HDR deliveries including Dolby Vision and much more.

MIST supports the entire IMF Application #5 requirements, including the ACES Authoring metadata, the Mastering Display Metadata and the Target Frames, wrapped as Ancillary Resources.
“Our mastering solution MIST was already permitting the creation of multiple deliverables using the ACES system, now with the properties of the IMF around it, the leverage is outstanding : more accuracy, less complexity and at the end, time savings” says Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies.

Marquise Technologies’ ICE Reference Player and TORNADO transcoding engine are also supporting IMF App #5.
