Application 2 (SMPTE ST 2067-20) is one such IMF application, and supports High Definition (1920×1080 frame size) SDR images and JPEG 2000 image coding. Application 2e (SMPTE ST 2067-21) extends Application 2 with support for HDR images up to 4K frame size. Applications 2 and 2e have received support from studios, post production facilities as well as the manufacturing community and is being used as a delivery format to OTT services (Netflix). Application 2 and 2e are often referred to collectively as IMF Studio Profile.
Other Applications exist, such as Application 3 (SMPTE ST 2067-30), while others still are being developed within SMPTE, in fact, Application 4 is moving forward. More are possible, especially when considering using specific codecs such as AVC-I video codec.
The SMI plug fests have so far focused on IMF Studio Profile.
