Instructional Method: Online, On-Demand Webinar
BXF is one of the most significant efforts to come out of SMPTE in some time. The set of six documents and schema collection can be a challenge to completely absorb. This webinar provides an overview of what BXF is, where it came from, and what its capabilities are. Broadcasters all over the world are leveraging its unique features to automate previously manual, or at the very least cumbersome, practices. Learn why they’re finding it indispensible and why you might, too.
BXF (SMPTE’s Broadcast eXchange Format) was first published several years ago. Since then, the broadcast industry has embraced it. Hundreds of implementations have been successfully completed, and BXF is well on its way to being the de facto method of connecting systems such as traffic, automation, and asset management.
Attendees will get up to speed on what exactly BXF is, and why it has so rapidly become one of SMPTE’s biggest success stories. The technical capabilities of BXF will be explored, as well as the underlying business benefits it provides.
Do you feel the pain caused by decades-old interfaces that are tough to maintain, and not well-suited to today’s demands for more open, dynamic interaction between systems? Are you being asked to do more, but with fewer resources? See how BXF has helped broadcasters, and how it can help you, as well.
Chris Lennon is a veteran of more than 25 years in the broadcasting business. He serves as engineering director for the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers and is a media industry consultant. Lennon is known as the father of the widely-used Broadcast eXchange Format (BXF) standard.
