Dolby Digital 5.1 Video Converter

For the last few years, Sony has been shipping cameras with a new format, XAVC. The FX6 packs an all-new 4K, back-illuminated, 10.2MP full frame sensor which boasts an impressive 15 stops of dynamic range. Speaking of dynamic range, to get the most out of this awesome new sensor, you’re going to want to shoot RAW. This camera is capable of sending a 16-bit RAW feed via SDI to an external recorder. The camera supports modern codecs such as XAVC-I and XAVC-L, as well as legacy codecs such as MPEG HD and DVCAM, allowing you to use one camera to shoot 4K, HD, or SD video. XAVC-I / XAVC-L generally uses the MXF wrapper, with the audio and video in a single file.

"I rencently purchased Sony FX6 4K camcorder, which captures 4K Ultra HD video for razor-sharp images. This is the second video camera I’ve tried. Got this to record memories of my kids for when they are older to watch! Camera is super easy to use! Love that its great overall quality! However, when I tried to open its 4K footage in FCP X, it got stuttered. I guess it’s because my Mac is not fast enough. Is there a workaround to go through this? Thanks for any advice. - Ramirez, Donald"
