Telestream has announced the release of
v2.1, an update to their component that enables Mac users to work with Sony XDCAM equipment. It costs $495; updates are free for current users.
Flip4Mac XDCAM is a QuickTime component and Final Cut Pro plug-in that enables users to directly ingest media from Sony XDCAM camcorders and compact decks. It works with DV, HDV and IMX MPEG content, and exports IMX files back to XDCAM devices. The content appears as a .mov file directly in your project bin, and file transfer happens over a Gigabit Ethernet connection.
The new 2.1 release adds the ability to export IMX 30/40/50 media across the entire XDCAM product line, according to Telestream.
