Derived from a professional-quality recording format, XAVC S compresses both the video and audio (using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 and PCM respectively) of your movies before saving as an MP4 file. XAVC S also lets you record images at 50Mbps, enhancing the level of detail associated with Full HD content while reducing the effects of compression noise.
