What is MXF?
MXF is a video format for the commutation of programme material between servers, tape streamers and to digital archives. Its contents can be a complete programme and complete packages enven or sequences. MXF is self-contained, holding complete content without need of external material.
MXF combines video, audio together with programme data, such as text – together termed essence – along with metadata and loads them into a container. It holds a sequence of video frames, each complete with associated audio, and data essence, plus frame-based metadata.
