hyperdeckstudio pro issue with codecs

PostWed Oct 23, 2013 12:50 pm


I'm using 2 hyperdecks for recording a live show. I wanted to try all the codecs available and proceeded to record dnxhd in a mxf wrapper.
I input SDI (SD!), so it is 625/50i.

Well the output file is in .mov ! Mediainfo tells me teh codec is "AJA video system Xena".
The "uncompressed" is showing as "AJA video system Xena" @220mbs.
I formatted the ssd in exfat before recording each codec; because I thought on the fly codec change may not be supported.

1/ Is it because I am inputting sd I cannot have uncompressed ? or dnxhd .mxf ?
2/ What is this AJA xena codec ? An error from mediainfo ?
3/ Could it be the new firmware that is faulty ? Anything else ?

Thank you

Have you installed the free DNxHD codecs from the Avid web site? If you have not done that... perhaps your system is having trouble identifying the codec used.
