What is XAVC/XAVC-S Format

In October 30, 2012, Sony developed a new recording file format called XAVC. It was specially designed to accelerate 4K development in both professional and consumer markets. It was initially used by Sony CineAlta 4K Camcorders PMW-F55 and PMW-F5. Using the highest level 5.2 of H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, XAVC can support superb 4K resolution (4096 × 2160 and 3840 × 2160) at up to 60 frames per second (fps). XAVC offers support for lots of various content productions including intra frame record and long group of pictures (GOP) recording. On April 7, 2013, "XAVC S", the expansion of XAVC was introduced by Sony into the consumer market. Using MP4 wrapping format, XAVC-S can support resolutions up to 3840 × 2160. It's believed that the joint-effort of XAVC and XAVC-S will help Sony achieve its goal of accelerating the fast growth of 4K content in professional and consumer markets.

Software that Supports XAVC/XAVC-S File

As far as we are concerned, there’s not much software capable of supporting this unique XAVC/XAVC-S file format, which include: Adobe Creative Suite 6, Avid, Final Cut Pro X, Grass Valley, Quantel, Rovi MainConcept SDK, and Sony Vegas Pro 12. We can infer that the XAVC/XAVC-S hasn't got good popularity yet, although it's said to be one of the most popular format in the coming future.

How to handle XAVC/XAVC-S Format Incompatibility Issue?

Basically speaking, there are two ways to get the XAVC files: shot by Sony CineAlta 4K Camcorders such as PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 or download from popular video-sharing websites like YouTube or Vimeo. The problem is that after getting the XAVC/XAVC-S video file, it's tough for us to deal with it because of its poor compatibility. It cannot be well recognized by most popular program (QuickTime, iMovie, FCP 6/7/8, Premiere, etc)or portable media devices(iPhone 5/4S/4, iPad, HTC One, Galaxy S4, Blackberry, etc).
