Supply Lines – New Immersive Technology Media Format specs released

The Immersive Digital Experiences Alliance (IDEA) has announced the release of the first draft of royalty-free specifications for the Immersive Technology Media Format (ITMF). ITMF is a display-agnostic interchange format for conveying high-quality and complex images to a wide variety of immersive displays, including extended-reality headsets and display panels, based on the highly-anticipated light field technology. Signalling industry momentum for immersive technologies, IDEA is releasing the first set of ITMF specifications based on ORBX® scene graph technology, a format created by cloud rendering 3D graphics company OTOY and supported by dozens of software systems used in 3D animation and game development. Applications range from passive viewing, gaming, and telepresence, including six degrees-of-freedom (6DoF), to next-generation light field displays. The new specifications are now available for public comment here.
