Project Overview

Problem to be solved::   To satisfy the DPP Requirements Project Group’s Report with a SMPTE Technical Specification (TSP) that details IMF Application Constraints which are as close as possible to the Image Characteristics, Track File and Composition constraints specified in SMPTE RDD 45 and meet as many of the Requirements as possible.
Project scope::   To deliver a SMPTE Technical Specification to constrain an Application of SMPTE ST 2067 - the Interoperable Master Format, which meets as many of the DPP Requirements as possible. The SMPTE Technical Specification should be based closely on RDD 45 using additional ST2067 documents as required and where necessary reference other published documents.
Specific tasks::   Draft SMPTE Technical Specification within the Scope of this Project Review draft TBR document with the Requirements Group and address comments Review SMPTE Technical Specification for completeness within the group. Prepare the SMPTE Technical Specification document for review by the drafting group, the Requirements group and the public. Address and where appropriate resolve the comments received. Prepare and review final documents with SMPTE HQ.
Form of output::   Other
