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.

In 2014 AMWA, working with the UK’s Digital Production Partnership, created a standard specification for file delivery from post-production to the broadcaster. The resulting AS-11 Contribution Application Specification (AS-11) defines a constrained MXF file and video and audio codecs along with required metadata.
