January 2010

Canon has announced the adoption of an MPEG-2 Full HD (4:2:2) file-based recording codec for a professional Canon video camcorder, currently in development, to enable high-quality imaging and audio performance.

The new Canon MPEG-2 codec promises compatibility with video industry-standard editing and processing software, high-quality imaging and audio performance (with up to 50 Mbps data recording), and twice the colour data of HDV profile formats.

File-based recording helps video operations to be much more efficient during post-production processing, making it an ideal format for many genres such as newsgathering, documentary filmmaking and event videography. The new codec will include the following advantages:

MPEG-2 Full HD compression and 4:2:2 colour sampling

The adoption of MPEG-2 Full HD compression enables the recording of 1920x1080-pixel full High Definition video. Compared with the 4:2:0 profile format, used in HDV and other standards, 4:2:2 colour sampling offers twice the volume of colour data thus providing double the level of colour resolution.

Maximum 50 Mbps data recording

With approximately twice the total data volume of HDV, the codec supports higher resolution and increased colour data to enable the recording of high-quality video.

Industry-standard MXF file format

Compatibility with Material eXchange Format (MXF) - a widely supported open source file format for the recording of video, audio and metadata, developed to suit the latest editing systems used by broadcasters.

Canon partners with software makers

With the adoption of the MPEG-2 Full HD (4:2:2) file-based recording codec, Canon is working with Adobe, Apple, AVID Technology and Grass Valley to ensure compatibility with all of the major editing and processing software programmes that are used in the video imaging industry. Additionally, at future industry events Canon intends to demonstrate the overall video production workflow, from initial video capture to clip-trimming and final editing. Video clips stored in a file-based recording system and industry-standard software applications will be used.

* Visitors to the Broadcast Video Expo event - to be held at the Earls Court 2 exhibition hall in London from 16-18 February 2010 - can visit the Canon stand to see demonstrations of workflow by Adobe, Apple, AVID and Grass Valley.
