nablet releases SmartRender XAVC and XDCAM video editor and engine SDK

AACHEN, Germany – October 8, 2018 – nablet, a leading provider of media analysis and processing technologies, announced today that it has released its SmartRender (SR) Editor and SDK. The new tools enable ultra-fast trim and cut editing of XAVC, XDCAM and other formats with frame accuracy. Using high-quality nablet codecs, only a few frames are rendered, at the beginning and end of edit points.

The new products enable significant cost savings by eliminating the need for expensive hardware XAVC or XDCAM encoders. Internal testing shows that the SR technology can reduce encoding times by as much as 400 percent over traditional XAVC encoding. Even in cases where smart rendering is not ideal, the nablet XAVC Encoder can encode 25-30 percent faster than other codecs on the market, depending on the selected profiles.

The nablet SmartRender editor is a user-friendly Windows app, with a macOS version planned for release soon. The SDK is available for Windows, macOS and Linux. An online editor is also available in the nablet cloud.

Features include:

  • Command line interface and components for integration into third party products (SR SDK)
  • Batch mode (SR Editor and SDK)
  • Support for MXF files
  • Merging and slicing files by parts, duration or size
  • Support for XDCAM family of formats
  • Support for XAVC family of formats
  • EDL support in XML format

“We are proud to offer this game-changing technology,” said nablet CEO Muzaffer Beygirci. “The nablet SmartRender tools utilize our highly optimized components to achieve performance that previously required dedicated hardware. We develop all of our codecs and related components ourselves, so we can add enhancements throughout the chain.”

The nablet SmartRender Editor is powered by Solveig Multimedia, a leading provider of smart video editing software. It builds on the SolveigMM Video Splitter which enables lossless editing of compressed video streams. nablet extends its feature set with its high-quality codecs and muxers to support production and broadcast formats. The Editor is available with a one-time license or an annual subscription. Additional information, demo download and purchase links are available at

For the SDK, flexible licensing options are available including a per license, a flat rate and annual subscription model, as well as a source code option. Additional details are available at
