MXF description

What is MXF?

MXF is an open format designed for the interchange of multimedia content, including associate metadata, and is specifically utilized in the television and motion picture industries. With enormous input from the user community, MXF is the format of choice for leading players in the broadcast industry. MXF is not a compression-specific format. This means that the use of MXF does not dictate the use of a specific manufacturer's equipment.
