Phase 1

Click here for the JT-NM Vision Mission Statement

In an open, participatory environment, help to drive development of a packet-based network infrastructure for the professional media industry by bringing together manufacturers, broadcasters and industry organizations (standards bodies and trade associations) with the objective to create, store, transfer and stream professional media. The first phase of the JT-NM work was conducted on a very aggressive timeline in order to produce useful output.

JT-NM (with some 250 members) compiled a list of user requirements, and issued a Request for Technology. 27 companies responded with technology proposals. The JT-NM Task Force published the User Requirements in the summer of 2013.

A team from JT-NM analyzed the responses and compared the proposed technologies with the user requirements. The Gap Analysis Report was published in the 4th quarter of 2013.

The Task Force Sponsors agreed to a second phase of work.

Phase 3

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and the Video Services Forum (VSF), the sponsors of the Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM), are pleased to announce the next phase of this joint industry effort.

JT-NM strongly believes that open interoperability in professional networked media is essential, that this interoperability can be developed in a coherent way, that it will continue evolving in accordance with a pre-planned roadmap over the next few years, and that there is solid communications between different industry efforts that result in a strong foundation upon which we can build future media businesses.
