Information about MXF and MOV file formats
|Full name||MXF, Material Exchange Format File||MOV - QuickTime File Format|
|File extension||.mxf||.mov, .qt|
|Developed by||SMPTE||Apple Inc.|
|Type of format||Video||Media container|
|Description||The best description of the MXF file extension (Material Exchange Format File) is that it is similar to an actual video tape, but it is in a newer digital format. The MXF file contains both the audio data and the digital data components that combine to create the overall complete video. The Society of Motion Picture an Television Engineers created the MXF file format to make it easier to work on the video files on different components, including servers, editing equipment that can handle digital files, cameras, etc. MXF files can also be easily converted to the AVI or MOV file types if needed.||QuickTime File Format (QTFF) is a computer file format used natively by the QuickTime framework. The International Organization for Standardization approved the QuickTime file format as the basis of the MPEG-4 file format. Because both the QuickTime and MP4 container formats can use the same MPEG-4 formats, they are mostly interchangeable in a QuickTime-only environment.|
|Technical details||The MXF file is essentially a “container” file that contains multiple different streams that make up the video. These individual streams can be in several different compression formats. Before the MXF file extension was created, there was a great deal of inconsistency among file formats for digital video files. This was a significant problem, particularly for professionals in the field because they frequently had to work with sub standard video files and somehow make them appear more professional. The MXF file extension was created as a platform-agnostic solution. The MXF file is considered to be the current standard as well as the future of digital video files.||The format specifies a multimedia container file that contains one or more tracks, each of which stores a particular type of data: audio, video, or text (e.g. for subtitles). Each track either contains a digitally-encoded media stream (using a specific format) or a data reference to the media stream located in another file.|
