Create complete IMF packages with Compressor and third-party tools

Create an IMF package with Compressor, then add supplementary packages using third-party tools.

You can create an IMF package with Compressor then add other IMF packages called supplementary packages. Supplementary IMF packages reference content from other packages. For example, if you need to add timed text to an IMF package, you can reference video and audio from the main package you created with Compressor, then include the timed text file in the supplementary package. 

Supplementary packages can also include additional video and audio content, additional composition playlists (CPLs), captions, sub scenes, and end credits.

You can use third-party apps such as MIST from Marquise Technologies and Connect from OWNZONES Entertainment Technologies to create supplementary packages started with Compressor. These apps also include tools for playback and quality assurance of IMF packages and content mastering.
