Grass Valley, SMPTE share Emmy for GXF

Sharing the award with the Society of Motion Picture & Television Engineers, the Grass Valley business group is being recognized for its lead effort in the development of the General eXchange Format (GXF), which enables third-party equipment to exchange content files over IT networks or on IT media. GXF was standardized by the SMPTE in 2001 as SMPTE 360M.

This file format is now in use in hundreds of facilities worldwide and has helped stimulate development of other protocols, such as the Media Exchange Format (MXF).
