Wed 9th December, 8:30 for 9am, Soho Screening Rooms
With the MXF standard now 11 years old, this complex and hugely powerful file format still continues to confuse and cause problems for even the most competent of engineers. However, MXF has a lot to offer, and if leveraged in the right way can become a reliable, feature-rich, backbone for a wide range of workflows.
In this month’s Tech Breakfast, ROOT6 Technology’s resident MXF, AAF, and file format expert, Bill Baker, will be demystifying some of the fundamental concepts of MXF and file interchange, and showing you how you can get more from MXF. Bill works closely as a software developer on low level MXF and AAF technologies, as well as acting as a workflow specialist for ContentAgent, ROOT6 Technology’s file-based workflow automation tool.
With a focus designed for engineers and systems architects, we will be taking a technical look at:
- The pedigree and design set of MXF
- Defining concepts such as partitions, index tables, KAG, metadata sets and much more
- Troubleshooting unruly MXF files
- Understanding the Avid data model, relinking, and OPAtom media
- And more!
As always the breakfast is free to attend but spaces are limited, so prior registration is strongly advised.
Breakfast will be served from 8:30am for a 9am start.
