The Advanced Media Workflow Association is an open, community-driven forum that creates specifications and technologies for networked media workflows. These cover both business aspects and the development of standards for better technical interoperability. It focuses on file-based workflows to help content creators and distributors in the film, television, advertising, Internet and post-production industries.
The AMWA currently focuses on the industry move to IP based architectures. To enable software based systems to recognize and exploit devices, the AMWA has developed the Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS).
