  • XAVC - The Next Generation Codec for 4K & HD Acquisition and Post-Production

    XAVC is a recording format introduced by Sony which can support 4K resolution at 60 frames per second. Colour sampling can be 4:2:0, 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 at 8-bits, 10-bits, or 12-bits. XAVC uses an MXF wrapper whereas the consumer version XAVC-S is an MPEG4 wrapper. XAVC allows for both intra frame and inter frame (long group of pictures) recording.
