Re: [AV Media Matters] Uncompressed Video File Formats

In terms of cards using uncompresesed or lossless for
post-production we are currently doing it with Pinnacle Targa 3000
(uncompressed) and Matrox Digisuite (lossless), both with the
discontinued discreet edit software. It is easier to become a Matrox
developer rather than a Targa one. Both cards easily generate AVI

I don't know their plans to support MXF but if someone will do it I
am sure they will be on the front line.

Hope this helps,
