SMPTE ST 381-3:2013

Material Exchange Format – Mapping AVC Streams into the MXF Generic Container

Published by: Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers / 07/29/2013 / 21 pages
This standard specifies the mapping of all AVC coding data as defined in ISO/IEC 14496-10 | Rec. ITU-T H.264 into the Material Exchange Format Generic Container (MXF-GC) based on the MXF MPEG mapping standard (SMPTE ST 381-2).

This standard does not apply to Annexes G (SVC) or H (MVC) of the AVC standard. The mapping of SVC and MVC might be covered by other SMPTE documents. This standard also does not support the AVC file format (ISO/IEC 14496-15).

This document specifies the carriage of parameter sets in an AVC essence stream “In-band”.

The MXF specification is written in several parts. This is an MXF mapping specification that defines header metadata sets and values, essence container elements and index table application.

In order to achieve interoperability within any given Operational Pattern, restrictions may be placed on the way in which this Generic Container type can be implemented. The reader is advised to carefully study the appropriate Operational Pattern document before implementation.
