What's MXF?

As a "container" or "wrapper" format, MXF has been designed to address a number of problems with non-professional formats. In 2010, Canon released its new lineup of professional file-based camcorders. The recording format used in these camcorders incorporates MPEG-2 video with bitrates up to 50 Mbit/s and 16-bit linear PCM audio in what Canon has called XF codec. Canon claims that its flavor of MXF is fully supported by major NLE systems including Adobe Premiere, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer, and Grass Valley EDIUS. Nowadays MXF has become much more popular thanks to the rapid development of Sony, Panasonic and Canon cameras.
