CineForm and Sony XDCAM EX

Will Aspect HD and/or Prospect HD support the 35mbps MPEG with Premiere Pro? I'm planning on buying the XDCAM EX and the May Prospect HD upgrade as well as Premiere Pro CS3 when all available. Thanks.
Dan

We have just worked out XDCAM in general, expect an official announced soon. So the answer is yes for Prospect HD, and maybe for Aspect HD (that hasn't been decided.)

Message for David

Does the latest version of HDlink work with Windows Vista?

Vista is not supported yet. That is a finicky OS at the moment. Of course Vista support is gaining priority, but in the meantime, if you can, stick with XP.

XDcam - HDlink

I work with Vegas 7. Will HD-link import xdcam-ex 35mbps? Will there be a choice to convert to intermediate AVI, or in this case it will just be fine to edit the format the way it is (in Vegas)?
Thank you.

We always convert to CineForm AVI or (soon optionally) MOVs before editing.

XDcam info

Hey David
What can you tell us about the XDcam support for Prospect HD? How will it work? I am assuming it will work with the FAM workflow. What about output? Can you at least give us more of a time frame then soon?

I am also intersted in the EX as a nice B camera to the XDcam 350.

We have XDCAM conversion tools working in-house, we are trying to get the XDCAM features in place for the May 1 release of Prospect HD v3.0. We will not be supporting XDCAM output, our exports are file based AVI, MOV, image sequences, or HDSDI.

Thank you

I have been waiting for awhile now. Export is not really a concern due to the fact that any and every thing I do either goes to DVD or HDcam via HDSDI for those broadcast jobs (I can not wait to get a Prospect HD V3 system up and going) Now what about Blu-ray that is supported by encore. Will CFHD files play well with encore and Blu-ray burners?

By the way I edited my first Aspect HD project and it worked flawlessly. I can not wait to try Prospect HD.

The new Encore should handle CFHD AVIs fine.

XD Cam EX is being released in Nov. I'm planning on getting one.
Do you think Aspect will be onboard for the XD 25 mbs codec at that time, or will it require an upgrade to Prospect??

XDCam EX should run with Aspect HD v5 when it is released. But with that camera you will probably want Prospect HD for it other benefits.

XDCam

Hey David, I was hoping that there would be a mention of XDCam support with prospect HD. What is the word will it come out in a later build? Or is it just not memtioned on the website yet?

We do have a workaround today but we are working towards something a little cleaner in a few weeks.
