Flip4Mac XDCAM 2.1
Telestream today released Flip4Mac XDCAM 2.1, updating the import component that allows editors to ingest MXF content directly from Sony's XDCAM Professional Disc production system into Apple's Final Cut Pro 5 software for editing. The latest revision adds the ability to also export IMX 30/40/50 media across the entire XDCAM family. The component expands Final Cut Pro workflows to enable greater functionality for video professionals using Sony's XDCAM system, and allows users to access file-based XDCAM content either as low-resolution proxy or at full bandwidth in SD or HD formats. The software also supports moving MXF media between Apple's Final Cut Pro real-time editing software and XDCAM devices to enhance workflow options. Flip4Mac XDCAM Component 2.1 is priced at $500, runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
