Combine Elements

Integrate MXF Tools into your workflows using mediaEngine and other components.
You can build your own workflows by using MXF Tools in combination with other video processing components. The watch folder application is one of many possible use cases. It checks input files for matching broadcast standards. It fixes errors automatically by remuxing or transcoding the original files. It can be easily integrated into any video processing pipeline.

For Smart Solutions

With multiple Elements you can process MXF files and its metadata in smart ways
Process Closed Captions data in your MXF files without transcoding. You can extract existing subtitles tracks, edit them and embed them back into the file. Or create new subtitling tracks out of external SRT or SCC files and mux them into the existing MXF easily in the fastest possible way with no transcoding.

At the Forefront of the MXF technology

nablet is among co-authors of the exciting new MXF Live draft SMPTE specification extension, along with ARRI and Trackmen.
MXF Live (or MXF over IP) adds additional flexibility for various use cases. For example, multiple devices on a set can send MXF data for a variety of purposes including remote control of receivers. It also allows a growing MXF file to be edited with NLE editors while ingest is still in progress.
