Sony’s next codec is “XEVC” – could blow the doors off the industry with 8K RAW at 240Mbit

Comment on the forum

Sony is working on a new codec to replace XAVC, which is based on the older H.264 compression standard.

The new codec is called XEVC according to leaks, based around H.265 (HEVC) Version 2. This supports Bayer RAW encoding, 8K and 12bit 4K at data rates efficient enough for almost any media, even current SD cards.

Sony A7R IV / A7S III / A9 II to feature 8K video, as new 60MP and 36MP full frame sensor specs leak

Comment on the forum

Sony has developed a duo of 8K capable full frame sensors, which will soon be released in two Sony cameras. That means out of the upcoming A7S III and A9 II, only one of those will feature the high resolution 8K 36MP sensor, with the 60MP sensor likely going into the A7R IV. Interestingly Sony will make the sensors available to customers, which mean the 8K 36MP sensor could see its way into a full frame Panasonic GH or SH camera.
