French software company MOG Solutions has announced announce that free trial versions of MXFPlayer and theScribe are being distributed with the Sony XDCAM throughout Europe, writes Fergal Ringrose. The new MXF products from MOG Solutions, announced at IBC2005 and now commercially available, are applications that enable MXF files to be played on a laptop.
In addition to the MXFPlayer, the demonstration CD also contains theScribe, an award-winning MXF application designed to manage MXF files. With theScribe, an MXF metadata editor, users can create and play MXF files, as well as synchronise the metadata with relevant audiovisual material. Both tools enhance the use of XDCAM camcorders within a networked IT environment, enabling easier integration of either high quality or proxy streams into workflows.
Commenting on the free trial offer, Olivier Bovis, senior marketing manager said, "The success of XDCAM has created more demand for flexible tools to give greater access to IT-based file operations, including file browsing, editing, and metadata access. MOG Solutions was one of the first companies to deliver XDCAM-focused tools to the market and the range of products they now offer will benefit both new and existing XDCAM users."
