SMPTE’s BXF Working Group recently assembled in Austin, Texas to officially kick off BXF Phase II which will produce the BXF 2.0 standard.

The original BXF standard, officially published in 2008, was established to create a common means for systems such as traffic, content management, content delivery and automation to work together. BXF has continued to gain acceptance since its inception, is supported by most of the major broadcast software vendors, and is being implemented into more and more broadcast operation facilities.

As technology and workflows continually evolve to keep pace with evolution in the broadcast market, the team has recognized the need for BXF to evolve with the changing marketplace. “As a team, we are committed to deliver new efficiencies to our clients and partners,” said Jamie Meyer, vice president, product development for VCI Solutions and a charter member of the SMPTE BXF Working Group. “Thus, it is adamant that we keep our finger on the pulse with regards to market changes and continue to establish and deliver BXF enhancements that make a positive impact in operational workflows.

“We are excited to have officially kicked off the next phase of BXF 2.0,” said Chris Lennon, director, integration and standards for Harris Corp., and chair of SMPTE’s BXF Working Group. “BXF has been a real success story already, only just a year since its publication. We look forward to capitalizing on this and taking things to the next level for our industry with BXF 2.0.”
