This NAB 2019 demo is using the beta version of the API with a single AWS hosted demo server. The media folder is periodically scanned for IMF assets and the databsed updated accordingly.

Some of the CPLs will have valid EIDR values in the
ContentVersionList. These values
can be validated and used to enhanve IMF workflow by looking up extra metadata in the
EIDR database. As an example:
- Bruce's Shorts Episode bs500a (10.5240/066F-7978-A46F-6295-5658-A) is the registered value for the abstract, generic bs500 episode
- Bruce's Shorts Episode bs500a that appears on YouTube (10.5240/7E13-1F89-8B47-3BED-AE9C-V) is the registered value for a specific version abstract bs500 episode. If you look at the database then you will find a parent record pointing to the abstraction.
IMF Tool is a great free IMF player written by Wolfgang's Team at the University of RheihnMain. Sponsored by Netflix, it is a windows application that can natively play back and perform basic editing of CPLs (Composition Play Lists).
