Metaglue has launched a beta version of a real-time Windows player for viewing MXF master files.

The MXF Master View plays MXF AS-03 and H.264 files and makes the SD or HD video, audio, subtitle and control information available at a glance on one screen.

Subtitles are also shown and player controls allow a user to move along the timeline and view different scenes or shots.

MXF Master View can be used to ensure that content is correct for distribution or transmission.

The company said: “We developed this tool to provide a comprehensive, easy to use way to view MXF master files. Perfect for a busy operational environment, it provides peace of mind that your content is correct for distribution or transmission.”
