In today’s world, one of the downsides of so many choices of cameras and formats, is that sometimes the editing codec most suitable for our editing systems may not exactly be native to our camera that captured the material we are editing.
This is where something very useful like EditReady comes in. EditReady has been designed with video professionals in mind as it lets you convert in a fast and easy way any MXF, M2T (HDV), MTS (AVCHD), or QuickTime to a more editing workflow-friendly ProRes, DNxHD/HR and H.264.

Even older AVCHD cameras like the Panasonic HDC-TM900 or Sony NX5U, or HDV cameras like a Sony HVR-Z7U are also covered. Not to mention newer and much more exciting hybrid shooters like the Panasonic GH5 and GH5s.
