nablet releases XAVC S export plugin for Avid Media Composer, enabling affordable Sony Instant HDR workflow

AACHEN, Germany – August 1, 2018 – nablet, a leading provider of media analysis and processing technologies, announced today that it has released its eagerly awaited XAVC S Export AMA Plugin. The new component enables the creation of Sony XAVC S compliant files via AMA File Export in Avid Media Composer. And, when used in conjunction with other nablet AMA plugins, it enables a low-cost Sony Instant HDR workflow.

Instant HDR consists of shooting footage in HDR and Hybrid Log Gamma (with Picture Profile for HLG/BT.2020), editing it in the same color space and delivering the final video in HLG HDR without the need for additional color grading. A variety of Sony cameras now support shooting in HLG HDR, including professional XAVC cameras as well as low-cost XAVC S models. The XAVC S Export Plugin provides this workflow in conjunction with the XAVC S Plugin (which enables linking of XAVC S files) and the XAVC XDCAM AMA Plugin.

Whether for delivery to consumers (MP4) or for further professional use (MXF), the nablet XAVC S Export AMA Plugin provides a low-cost way to monitor editing work in an environment where an expensive professional HDR monitor is not available. The timeline can be exported to XAVC S and reviewed in HDR on an affordable Sony BRAVIA® 4K TV. For a list of BRAVIA® models and Sony Cameras that support HLG HDR please contact Sony or visit their website.

“Our goal is to provide affordable, professional software solutions to our customers,” said Peter Neumann, PM and Lead Developer, Plugins at nablet. “Our XAVC S Export Plugin rounds out our line of AMA plugins for Sony video formats, enabling a low-cost Instant HDR workflow.”

The XAVC S Export AMA Plugin is available for $99 (US) for a single license, or $379 for a 5-license pack. Demo versions and purchase links are available at
