Native tapeless editing workflow for Sony XDCAM and Panasonic P2 formats
Import and edit content from Sony XDCAM and Panasonic P2 equipment natively, without transcoding or rewrapping. Deliver content quickly and efficiently with true native editing directly from XDCAM, XDCAM EX, XDCAM HD and P2 media. Or copy files to the hard drive to take full advantage of your system’s speed. Adobe Premiere Pro retains key metadata from the XDCAM and P2 media, making it available within the project window. Editors can mix other file formats freely within the Adobe Premiere Pro timeline, combining content from multiple sources. Finally, export your work to P2 to allow playback on P2 equipment.

Add color correction, lighting and other effects, audio filters, and more with fast, flexible, built-in tools. Edit footage from multicam shoots with ease and precision.
Comprehensive video-format compatibility
Work with the formats you want. Edit all standard- or high-definition formats, from DV and HDV to HD and beyond (some formats may require additional hardware).
Broad range of supporting hardware and software for Mac and Windows

Improved editing efficiency
Work faster with powerful and flexible editing tools. Play video with nested audio sequences in real time without rendering.
