SPOTxml € 89,00


Current version is 4.1.8 for Mac, 4.1.9 for Win

This util is for people who need to upload commercials to broadcasters conform the 'SPOT' standards.
It makes it very easy to create SPOT compatible files.
It copies / renames the MXF and optional additional files to a user selectable output directory, ready for upload to the broadcaster.

But, you can input close to anything!
So, input a ProRes or alike file if you want, you'll get a MXF with XML ready to upload for broadcast.

The advanced checking options make it impossible to have mistakes in the XML and filenames.
It scans the input file, and auto detects loudness, timecode, duration, channel mapping etc, and fix problems if any.

It contains code written for BrandDeli (Now RTL), and that has processed / fixed thousands of otherwise out of spec files, made those fitted for broadcast!

Main features include
  • Simple and fast creation of XML files
  • Simple and fast creation of broadcast standard MXF files with auto audio levels to EBU R128
  • extra Mp4 output for client approval
  • Check for accuracy of the metadata
  • Check for loudness (LUFS)
  • Check for True Peak
  • Check for Short term loudness
  • Check for timecode / resolution / sound data of the source file
  • Auto renaming of assets
  • Preview function with optional TC / safe area overlay
  • (Auto) Render function to force create compliant files

Like most tools found here, we had a need for it. Over the last years we have used it ourselves to create hundreds of commercials for national TV.
