XDCAM is a series of video formats that are widely used in the broadcasting industry, you might also know them as MXF. Sony introduced them back in 2003, and since then they’ve become quite popular among video professionals. It has always been possible to encode to XDCAMs in Panda through our raw encoding profiles, but we’ve decided to make it more streamlined. Oh, and, by the way, to make their quality possibly best in the industry.
And here it is, the new preset to create XDCAM profiles. Everything can be set up using Panda’s UI. Because XDCAMs only allow a predefined set of possible FPS values, we decided that it would be a good idea to always use our motion-compensated FPS conversion for XDCAM profiles (more on Google’s blog). If your input video’s frame rate doesn’t match that used by the XDCAM preset, or if it is progressive and you need interlaced outputs, the quality won’t degrade as much as it would without motion compensation. And that’s what gives our preset the best quality in the cloud video encoding industry.
