Factsheet Manual Download

While Carbon reads many video file formats you’ve certainly faced the situation when Carbon refuses a certain type of formats. This problem is addressed by our importer plugin via a generic demuxing/decoding engine that reads nearly any known professional, semi-professional or consumer video file format. So far there are no files known, that it can not make available for transcoding with Carbon.

Supported Formats

The Harmonic (Rhozet) Carbon Importer PlugIn aims to support all formats (codecs and containers) that for instance, FFMPEG would support. The most important are:

  • AVCHD in MXF (and other containers)
  • webm (any applicable codec)
  • mkv (any applicable codec)

Improvements to original Carbons importers

Furthermore, it addresses certain bugs and weaknesses in Carbons original importers:

  • correct color space (especially for *.mov)
  • frame accurate for nearly any video file format
  • does potentially fix various hang and crash bugs (e.g. caused by internal scaler)
  • video preview and in/out points for formats where Carbon doesn’t support it ( e.g. *.ts)
  • much faster demuxing/decoding for certain formats, e.g. *.mov
  • potentially higher quality for up and downscaling

Last but not least, it allows replacing the Quicktime player as *.mov importer.
