Here are file exchange standards and formats (aside from DCI) that we should keep an eye on:

Interoperable Master Format (IMF) – Led by USC’s ETC

Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) – Developed by AMPAS and ASC

Material Exchange Format (MXF) “Wrapper” – SMPTE Standard that seems more capable than MOV files and is more often used by filmmakers.

One other format from Martin Howe called DPX that is also used in the film industry:

Here is another format- EXR - recommended by Brad Thompson of Spitz Creative Media:

OpenEXR is a high dynamic range imaging image file format, released as an open standard along with a set of software tools created by Industrial Light and Magic (ILM), released under a free software license similar to the BSD license.[1]

It is notable for supporting 16-bits-per-channel floating point values (half precision), with a sign bit, five bits of exponent, and a ten-bit mantissa. This allows a dynamic range of over thirty stops of exposure.

Both lossless and lossy compression of high dynamic range data is also supported.[2]
