SeaChange International joined other participants to showcase MXF interoperability at the European Broadcast Union’s (EBU) Village at IBC2005. MXF file wrapper capabilities, inherent across SeaChange’s broadcast systems, support standard definition IMX/MXF content at 30Mb/s for the EBU’s content subtitling demonstrations.
The EBU Village brought together exhibits from a number of EBU members and affiliates to highlight a range of advancements in television technologies. This year, eight demonstrations from members such as the BBC and IRT, in addition to affiliates including WorldDAB and DigiTAG, showcased some of the new technologies available.
MXF was designed to ensure file format interoperability among broadcast components in an IT television infrastructure. It works between cameras, storage, software applications and I/O subsystems, resulting in faster workflow.
At IBC, SeaChange demonstrated the scalability and interoperability of the MediaCluster-based MediaLibrary storage and SD and HD MediaClient codecs. Applications feature MPEG-2 and DV encoding/decoding and integration with numerous clients including Final Cut Pro NLE and Sony’s MXF-based XDCAM removable optical storage.
