The main page for IMF at SMPTE is HERE. (https://kws.smpte.org/apps/org/workgroup/35pm50-imf/) But it will only load if YOU ARE A MEMBER OF THE SMPTE STANDARDS COMMUNITY TO OPEN THESE LINKS – see http://smpte.org/standards/faq.

The SMI/DM group is assembling a suggestion/bug list for version 1.1 of the IMF specification. Go to https://standards.atlassian.net/projects/IMF/issues/IMF-1?filter=allopenissues to participate in the bug tracking.

These are the SMPTE standards needed for IMF:
