XAVC is a brand new recording format which can support 4K resolution (4096 × 2160 and 3840 × 2160) at up to 60 fps, introduced by the famous Japanese camera manufacturer Sony on October 30, 2012. However, .xavc is still not as popular as other kinds of video formats such as AVCHD and MXF, so when you deal with the XAVC/XAVC-S footages, for example, importing XAVC/XAVC-S to Mac applications like QuickTime, iMovie and Final Cut Pro, you may encounter some format compatibility or video/audio synchronization problems.
