MXF interchange specification

This specification applies to MXF file transfer, import, and export on K2 Summit, Solo, and SAN systems.

MXF supports simple clips with a single video track only.

Formats are supported are as follows:
Supported formats Notes
Video DVCPRO25
DVCPRO HD Super Slo-Mo requires software version 7.1. x or higher
D10 See MXF export behavior for eVTR style D10AES3.
MPEG-2 Includes all MPEG-2 formats (IMX, XDCAM, etc.) that can be stored on a K2 system
Avid DNxHD Playable on K2 Summit 3G system only. Can transfer to systems with K2 software version 8.x and higher.  
Apple ProRes Supported systems: K2 Summit 3G system, K2 Summit IP client SDI I/O and K2 Summit IP client IP I/O. Can transfer to systems with K2 version 9.8 and higher.  
Audio 48 kHz
16 bit, 24 bit
PCM, Dolby-E, AC-3
Data VBI MXF supports either ancillary data packets or VBI lines in the data track but not both, so if ancillary data packets and VBI lines have been recorded into the K2 clip’s data track, then the VBI lines will be dropped from the MXF data track on an MXF export.
Interchange mechanisms are supported as follows:
Mechanism Support
File based Import Yes
Export Yes
FTP stream Import Yes
Export Yes

With a special export option, you can export a completed continuous (loop) record clip as MXF or QuickTime, with the result being a flattened stream file. Recording must be complete before you export the clip, however you can make subclips while record is underway and export the subclips. For this feature, MPEG-2 long GoP is not supported.
