D.A.V.I.D. Releases MXF Based Integration: Final Cut Pro® and the DigaSystem® CMS Converge

(PresseBox) (München, ) D.A.V.I.D. has good news for Final Cut Pro users. At IBC, the Munich based developer of audio and video broadcast systems will debut the fusion of its DigaSystem® CMS to Apple's editing platform. File based video content can now be exchanged between both systems via MXF. D.A.V.I.D. is also pushing its MXF integration in other ways: DigaIngester can generate MXF files easily and conveniently through one-step recording. Even the new video editors as well as the Moves Media applications support the new exchange format.

The integration of Final Cut Pro gives Mac users the ability to exchange video files with D.A.V.I.D.'s DigaSystem® CMS and vice versa. The interface for the platform-wide data exchange is Silex Media's Hydrogen Media Accelerator which manages the bi-directional conversion of QuickTime files to MXF. The resulting file transfer is managed via watch folders and D.A.V.I.D. Moves Media solutions. The ARD, for example, is organizing the Internet and ATM network-based data exchange between correspondents, foreign offices and the broadcast stations with the Moves Media applications DigaMailbox IP and DigaReplicator AV, which also support MXF exchange.

MXF integration adds new functionality to D.A.V.I.D. Media Production tools as well. With the video editors DigaCut ST (Single Track) and DigaCut MT (Multiple Tracks), both of which are being shown for the first time at IBC 2007, MXF files can be imported, edited and exported. Ingesting video files with DigaIngester, users now have the option to generate MXF files on-the-fly.

IBC visitors can get more information about D.A.V.I.D.'s MXF capabilities in hall 7, booth no. 7.631, or online at
