New edition: Timecode Best Practices

The UG has published a new version of its timecode best practices.

Based on feedback from users and implementers, timecode tracks are now prohibited in IMF Track Files:

  • processors that create Track Files shall not emit MXF Timecode tracks in any IMF Track File.
  • processors that validate Track Files shall warn but not reject an IMF Track File if it contains an MXF Timecode track.
  • In all other cases, processors shall ignore MXF Timecode tracks
