There has been an explosion of digital media production in recent years, as you know. As the digital media production increases so, too, does the need to store and preserve it. One of the challenges with content storage lies in the vast number of systems that exist today, many of which are not based on interoperable technologies. Enter the Archive eXchange Format (AXF) which promises to help address the challenges of incompatible media storage, archive and preservation systems. Our speakers will further explain why this has been such a challenge, how we got where we are and how the AXF standard effort from SMPTE, currently in the works, will help resolve many of them.
The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE), is the leading technical society for the motion imaging industry.
