Sony Delays XDCAM

Due to the complexity of incorporating both high- and low-resolution proxy video, metadata, and MFX wrappers within a single operating system, Sony has pushed back production of its XDCAM optical disk units until March.

Although XDCAM was supposed to have begun shipping at the end of last month, Sony has decided to take advantage of the delay and incorporate more customer feedback for production models and make sure that the proxy video works with industry leading editing systems. System enhancements are expected to be executed in the software of more than 2,000 XDCAM units, available in March.
