What is XAVC S?
On April 7, 2013, Sony announced that it had expanded XAVC to the consumer market with the release of XAVC S. XAVC S supports resolutions up to 3840 × 2160, uses MP4 as the container format, and uses either AAC or LPCM for the audio. As example used in the Sony FDR-AX100 4K Ultra HD consumer camcorder and Sony HDR-AS100V, Sony FDR-X3000 action camera. The Sony a6000, Sony Alpha a6300, Sony Alpha a7 II, Sony a7s, Sony a7s ii as well as some consumer stills cameras with movie support (e.g. the Sony RX10, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX80) also offer XAVC-S.
XAVC S is a subset format, using many of the superlative techniques and technologies used in XAVC, but intended for consumer products and workflows. It supports the 3840×2160 pixel version of 4K only, known as Quad Full HD, QFHD, UltraHDTV or UHDTV. XAVC S is a lighter codec with Long GOP compression and relatively small recorded file sizes. XAVC S also uses the .MP4 file wrapper for greater compatibility and suitability in consumer workflows.
However, only little video editing software supports XAVC S. If you want to edit, play and share Sony XAVC S MP4 without any problem, you need to convert the XAVC S videos via a professional XAVC S Video Converter.
