Please accept our apologies for not having up-to-date information about this topic.
Nevertheless, we keep offering repair services for this type of damaged footage — with same level of quality as ever — and we will continue to do so in the future.

What is IMX?
IMX is a professional SD broadcast codec.
Technically, IMX (also called Betacam IMX or MPEG IMX) uses MPEG-2 compression. All the frames are compressed as I-frames with 4:2:2 Y'CbCr profile.
IMX video was often recorded in Betacam tapes, but has recently transitioned to file-based workflows: IMX is usually found inside a .MXF wrapper.
Treasured can detect IMX footage in recovered files (regardless of extension), in cards and in hard disks.
IMX flavors supported:
- IMX NTSC 30 Mbit/s or 50 Mbit/s
- IMX PAL 30 Mbit/s or 50 Mbit/s
We have successfully repaired IMX footage by developing specific Repair Kits:
- Repaired Videos have same quality as originally recorded
- Repaired Videos come in same MXF containers as normal footage, and are compatible with production workflow
