The nablet HDCAM-SR plugin is the successor of the former Sony SRPA-10 plugin. Note that the nablet plugin and the Sony plugin cannot coexist on the same system. Our component enables a seamless transition in your HDCAM-SR editing workflow after the Sony plug-in had been uninstalled.

Note that clips in an editing project which have previously been linked by the Sony plug-in will show same plug-in name in the bins clip info although the nablet plug-in now handles them. This is because the Avid application stored the initial information persistently.

Note: The nablet plug-ins and the legacy Sony plug-ins cannot coexist on the same system. Having them both installed will result in unpredictable behaviors of the editing application.
