Marquise & IMC Technologies to offer IMF Media Management


Geneva, Switzerland, 05.09.2016 – Swiss-based developer of high-end solutions for post-production Marquise Technologies announced today a collaboration with IMC Technologies in order to develop a disruptive media asset management platform supporting IMF and other complex packages.

After a slow outset, IMF, the Interoperable Master Format is now actively being used for exchanging high-end content, mostly for 4K UHD and HDR productions from major studios and premium OTTs.
Marquise Technologies, leader in the support of this technology since the beginning, is offering a complete suite of tools for IMF processing workflows, starting with the mastering system MIST, which is already utilized in North America for delivering content to Netflix, ICE an accurate reference player for Quality Control of Image, Sound and Metadata elements and our API controlled transcoding server, TORNADO.

There was however a stumbling block in the roll out of IMF as the format of choice for exchange between industry professionals: that was how to manage these complex packages, constituted of assets and metadata files that were not recognized by traditional MAMs. This has now been resolved, with a co-development with IMC Technologies, a specialist of Media Asset Management solutions, of an avant-garde content manager system, able not only to store and retrieve IMF packages, but also the associated metadata, version files, DCP or any other file format.
“Managing IMF content was the missing link in the expansion of package exchange. This gap is now filled, thanks to the pooling of the expertise and strengths of both companies” says Laurence Stoll, CEO of Marquise Technologies.
“IMF has become the international standard format for file based exchange of cinema and video content. Every participant within the delivery chain must be prepared with the right media management tools to best take advantage of the benefits offered by this format” says Georges Nakhle, Managing Director of IMC Technologies Inc.
