  • Specs | AMWA

    Specs SPECIFICATIONS The AMWA develops specifications and technologies to facilitate the deployment and operation of efficient media workflows. There are three types of specifications - Application Specifications, Data Model Specifications, and Interface Specifications. The AMWA also publishes Best Current Practices. More information on each of these document types is provided at the foot of this page. ​ To make sure that projects are clearly defined, adequately resourced and successful, we have a process to carefully manage proposals from start to finish. We welcome all new ideas to advance workflows. The AMWA Specification Process document provides information on how AMWA projects are started, the different types of AMWA Specifications, and the different levels of AMWA Specifications. Although first designed to meet a known requirement, a specification can be updated, either because the original user has refined their needs or because a new member wishes to capitalise on the previous work and slightly extend the capabilities of the specification.

Business Requirements Owner: NMOS Steering group, NMOS-Steering@AMWA.tv Work in Progress Informative documentS AMWA Informative Documents (documents with the prefix INFO) are not AMWA Specifications but contain information that is thought to be helpful to the media industry. For example, INFO-004 provides practical information on implementation of DNS-SD in NMOS systems and INFO-005 provides a guide for those implementing NMOS Controllers. ​ The information they contain is not required in order to successfully create an interoperable implementation of an AMWA Specification. That said, Informative documents are likely to be useful to implementers and end users who are working to create NMOS-based systems by identifying and addressing common questions and expanding on the normative language of the relevant Specifications. ​ Because Information Documents provide general information that may be helpful, but do not contain any normative provisions which would be required to ensure the implementation and interoperability of an AMWA Specification, the AMWA IPR Policy and procedures do not apply to them. Info-Docs INFO-001 At the request of the AMWA board, a team of volunteers, including end-users, network equipment providers, processing equipment providers, and related software subsystem developers was charged with the task of adding a layer of detail to the JT-NM reference architecture in the area of control, monitoring and management interfaces.

  • Agile Media | AMWA

    Agile Media successful use of "it thinking" in a media environment ​ The media industry is going through a period of rapid change, which shows no sign of slowing down. The use of cloud-based services and storage for acquisition, management and delivery of content promises to offer great flexibility, without the need for traditional investment in specialised media devices. There is currently no quick or easy way to achieve this using open standards or specifications, and careful planning is required to deliver against end users’ needs. The most likely way to meet the demanding and ever-changing requirements of end viewers will be to employ more “IT-Thinking”, employing IT best practices and approaches to our industry, combined with the experience our industry has gained over the years about how best to deliver media to consumers. The AMWA has some resources that may help in this journey. First, there is a presentation by Brad Gilmer on IT Thinking for Professional Media . This highlights core concepts from the IT industry that may help us, as we seek to adapt IT techniques to our industry. Another resource is the Agile Media Blueprint , co-authored by Dr. Richard Cartwright and Brad Gilmer. This document, subtitled, “Creating and monetizing content using the Internet technology platform”, introduces concepts, along with an architectural blueprint that may be used as the basis for “cloud-fit” professional media facilities of the future. ​ AGILE MEDIA WORKFLOWS PRESENTATION ​ Given in the fall of 2019, this presentation provides the chance to learn about steps towards Agile Media Workflows. ​ To ensure that everyone has the same understanding of our goals and how the project would move forward, in the 45 minutes we cover the following topics:- Brief overview of the AMWA; What we are and what we do. Why business agility and agile workflows are a hot topic. What we mean by “agile”, “cloud” and “COTS” in this context. Further industry reading on this subject. AMWA projects and processes / how we work. Conditions to join this project. The next step - discovering and analysing end user’s most urgent needs. ​ Agile Media Workflows Presentation ​

  • Certification | AMWA

    Certification AS-11 DPP AMWA CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY AS-11 DPP ​ What is AS-11 DPP? As the SMPTE standard for MXF gained adoption, around 2012 it was recognised that a specific subset would be valuable to UK broadcasters for the delivery of finished programs. In support of the Digital Production Partnership (DPP), comprising the BBC, Channel Four and ITV, and with the support of Sky and BT Sport, the AMWA developed the DPP subset of AS-11 to constrain the media format and to add the extra metadata required for their workflows. ​ To provide confidence for customers wishing to buy AS-11 compliant products, the DPP set up a Test Lab. In conjunction with this, the AMWA established a Certification authority to authorize the use of logos and grant the rights to manufacturers to make appropriate claims regarding the compliance of their products. Please note - MXF is seen by many as a mature technology and the DPP’s Test Lab and the AMWA Certification Authority are not operating at the present time. ​ What does an AS-11 DPP Certificate mean? The DPP have been very specific in stating what an AS-11 DPP certificate means within the context of their compliance tests. ​ Important Notes about this Certification It is very important that the user reads the Test Report for the product/version they are interested in. The AS-11 UK DPP shim specification hosted by AMWA now also hosts the Rules for Conformance. The Rules for Conformance are used as the final point of reference in cases of discrepancy with the AS-11 specification or ambiguity in the specification. Products are tested against the HD Shim only (at this time), and for the file format only, and so are completely content agnostic. Further details about DPP testing leading to Certification can be found on the DPP website. www.thedpp.com ​ What a Certificate means The capability of a product/version to read and/or write files to “AMWA AS-11 UK DPP” HD Shim (SD Shim files are not yet covered) has been tested by the DPP Compliance Lab and all the tests performed, as documented in the Test Report under the specified operating conditions have either “Passed” or “Passed with Conditions”. What a Certificate does NOT mean All modes and features of the product have been tested. All files produced by a Certified Writer are always fully conformant to the “AMWA AS-11 UK DPP” Shims. All files from Certified Writers will always work correctly with Certified Readers. ​ ​ AMWA AS-11 UK DPP HD – Format Conformance Testing Certificates ​ The table below provides summary information regarding certificates granted by the AMWA CA to manufacturers. Please note that certificates are granted for a specific version of a product (or for products on a continuous release schedule, for a specific product as of a specific date and time), tested against a specific set of DPP test criteria as of a specific date. ​ The DPP test lab issues a test report to vendors who have submitted products for testing. The vendor may then choose to submit that test report to the AMWA CA in order to obtain a certificate. The DPP test report may be downloaded by clicking on the test report corresponding to the product in the table below. ​ OEM Prod. Name Prod. Version Report Date Issue Date Cert.

  • Certification-original | AMWA

    Certification AMWA CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY Why was it created? The AMWA operates a Certification Authority (CA) to convey to vendors the legal right to use logos and to make claims about their product’s or service’s performance. It is a major goal of the CA, working with our partners, to increase a media company's confidence when selecting products to use in their programme-making and delivery processes. ​ What does it do? The AMWA Certification Authority works with partner organizations to demonstrate to the industry that products meet testing criteria established by our partners. It is important to note that the CA does not establish the criteria for certification, nor does it perform testing or analysis to determine whether a vendor's product meets those criteria - this work is done elsewhere. However, once the vendor has proof that their product meets the criteria, they may apply to the CA in order to be granted formal certification and access to logos and other marketing material to promote their products and services. ​ ​ Certification Authority Projects The first project for the Certification Authority has been with the UK’s Digital Production Partnership (DPP), comprising public service broadcasters, the BBC, Channel Four and ITV. Their goal is to promote interoperability between products used in the delivery of AS-11 DPP format MXF files prior to distribution. Further details are on our CERTIFICATION AUTHORITY – AS-11 DPP page. ​ ​ Benefits for End Users The move from tape to file based workflows can introduce concerns about interoperability between different products. It is important that media companies have confidence that a manufacturer's product meets its claims of compliance to an Application Specification and that files can be reliably exchanged between systems. ​ ​ Benefits for Suppliers The goal of product certification is to give users of products the confidence that there is interoperability between a range of suppliers and that MXF files created to an AMWA Application Specification will meet that specification for easy exchange. Further details are on our Certification Authority – AS-11 DPP Supplier Information page. ​ ​ ​
