Adobe Submits the DNG Raw File Format to the ISO

John Nack posted an expanded explanation of a recent Digital Photo Pro DNG article that quotes Kevin Conner, senior director of product management for Adobe’s professional digital imaging products, saying:

“We’ve actually started talking to ISO [International Organization for Standardization] of potential standardization around a new RAW format,” Connor says. “We’ve submitted DNG as something for them to consider. At this point in time, it’s sort of premature to speculate whether a formal standard will come out of that or not. Obviously, it’s a standardization process that can take a long time, with many parties involved and different viewpoints. The good thing is that there’s a discussion happening.”

John also mentioned that Adobe will be releasing a “DNG-viewing codec for Windows Vista, making it possible to view DNG files right within the operating system. Expect this free download to be posted soon.”
