​MOG Revamps Material Exchange Format SDK

MOG Technologies has announced a new version of MXF::SDK, its MXF Software Development Toolkit.


First launched in 
2003, the MOG MXF::SDK was the first commercially available implementation of MXF.

The SDK abstracts the application layer from the details and complexity of the MXF format, using simple application programming interfaces.

“
The new version of MXF::SDK is simpler to integrate with and even more complete,” says the firm. “There's support for the latest formats like XAVC, AVC Ultra and DNxHR, as well as a simplified licensing and distribution model.



“Our current customers will notice two great changes. Firstly, it was totally rewritten internally in order to take advantage of the latest C++ compilers but we managed to do it while being binary compatible with older compilers.

“Secondly, we have packaged all the codecs and formats in a single product, with a single DLL and license. This means anything SD, HD and UHD, in one place.”

The SDK is available from Mog's website.
