The applications include several MainConcept components and profiles for transcoding video clips in demo mode (output comes with explicit watermark symbol and 30 seconds audio limitation). Users can remove the watermark and audio limitations by licensing MainConcept Conversion Pack, thereby enabling all transcoding functions to create streams for WMV, Apple iPod, Sony PSP, and the whole XDCAM family.

The Plug-In offers professional media content conversion of high resolution video as well as audio formats for the entire Sony XDCAM portfolio allowing for perfect workflow in a broadcast environment. You have the opportunity to transcode your Sony XDCAM EX footage into common XDCAM HD / HD422 MXF files and also easily copy XDCAM EX footage (SxS memory card) to XDCAM HD / HD422 camcorders and decks (Professional Disc). Additionally, it comes with full XDCAM IMX as well as DVCAM support.

The new Conversion Pack also offers internet format conversion. So you have the opportunity to create WMV compliant streams using the full version profile for VC-1, including a WMA Audio Encoder and ASF Muxer, to create streams that are compatible with the SMPTE 421M-2006 standard Moreover, you can transcode your Sony XDCAM footage into common formats such as H.264/AVC video and AAC audio, in order to generate streams that are compliant with Apple iPod and Sony PSP.

MainConcept Conversion Pack can only be used when Sony XDCAM Browser or Content Browser is installed (not included).
