I was curious to see how the AxioHD would treat the MXF files from Convergent Design's latest wonder gizmos, FlashXDR and NanoFlash.

To quickly summarize what they do: they're solid state recorders that takes the SDI output from low cost cameras like the Sony EX series and recordsit to full 1920 mpeg2 MXF files, 4:2:2 at long gop and iFrame bit rates up to 160mbs, much better than the 4:2:0 25-35mbps of the HDV and EX native recording of the cameras. In the Nanoflash the unit is a little larger than a pack of smokes. There are quite a few SDI cameras now with full SDI out that bypasses the compression of the camera recorders.

C-D sent me a link to download a 50mbps long gop and 100 & 160 Mbps iframe files and I dropped them on a Matrox 1920 timeline.

The great news is that Axio sees the file as Matrox MXF. They play RT with Matrox RT effects. I stacked three layers at 50% opacity and played them without dropping a frame.

Very impressive!

I should have mentioned that this was in Pr CS4.01 with Axio 4.0. I didn't try CS3
