Harris Broadcast Communications moves BXF into next phase
BXF 2.0 improves business and technical efficiencies across the media workflow.

Harris celebrates the publication of the BXF 2.0 suite. BXF, or Broadcast eXchange Format, standardizes the exchange of schedule, as-run, content metadata, and content transfer instructions between workflow systems — including servers, editors, traffic and billing, sales and scheduling, automation and digital asset management equipment.  

The publication of BXF 2.0 marks an important continuation in BXF development and implementation — an effort that began with the SMPTE in 2004, led by Harris CTO Group Lead Chris Lennon.

BXF 2.0 consists of several backward-compatible enhancements to the existing standard including additional support for sponsored secondary events, re-use of house numbers, enhanced multi-language support, and the ability to communicate “aired” events (previous, current and next). 

The updated schema and documents for BXF 2.0 are available at the SMPTE Store under SMPTE 2021.
