Sony to release XAVC, the missing link to UltraHD TV, licensees include Apple, Adobe and more
Posted by on Nov 15, 2012

For some time, I was wondering how we are supposed to feed the new Ultra HD televisions that will be presented at the next CES, in january 2013. For those who don’t know yet, Ultra HD is the commercial name of what professionals call 4k which has a 3,840 x 2,160 resolution.

Sony might just announced the missing link: a new codec named XAVC. This codec, found in the new F5 & F55 CineAlta camcorders, is an open-standard based on Level 5.2 H.264 video compression with allow up to 12-bit color depth (4:4:4), 60 fps speed at 4k (!) and up to 180 fps in HD.

Sony will released this month an SDK to developers for supporting this new codec in their applications and fourteens companies are already on-board including Adobe, Apple, ASSIMILATE, FilmLight & Quantel… Sony hopes to bring this codec to consumers too.

Until I can get a hand-on this models, I’ll try to upgrade my Blu-ray to this new XAVC… until H.265 HEVC comes too…
