ZX Models

Workflow | Your choice - OpAtom, Op1a, MOV
ZX comes with your choice of workflow wrapper package.

Choose the MXF OpAtom package if your encoding and editing is primarily in an Avid environment. The Quick Time – MOV package is best if you are primarily working in Final Cut though it can be applicable to a broad combination of post-production needs. If you are working with an Adobe-centric system or require DPP / AS-02 / AS-11 compatible files, consider the MXF Op1A package. Each wrapper workflow packages come with all codecs as listed in the matrix and all systems can create H.264 proxy files. If you need additional wrapper support at a later date, you can always add additional workflow packages.

Wrapper Workflow
