Is MPEG IMX compression supported by the i.LINK interface?
Yes, MPEG IMX compression is supported by i.LINK (File Access Mode). • Why is the transfer rate slower for 100Base-T than for the i.LINK interface? Although the theoretical maximum transfer rate of 100Base-T Ethernet is 100 Mbps, the effective throughput is around 30 Mbps. In the case of MPEG IMX format material recorded at 50Mbps, eight channels of audio and metadata increase the total load of 57.5 Mbps. This yields a transfer rate of 0.5 times real time. In contrast, the theoretical maximum transfer rate of the i.LINK (File Access Mode) interface is 400 Mbps and the effective throughput is around 90 Mbps maximum. Accordingly, MPEG IMX format material recorded at 50 Mbps will be transferred at 1.5 times faster than real times. • I want to convert MPEG IMX format material to DVCAM format material and output it at the i.LINK interface for my DV editing environment. Can I do that faster than real time? The conversion is performed in real time. • How do i get XDCAM video into an Avid NLE
