Sony has introduced a new version of its Content Browser software – version 2.0 – that includes a handful of additional features including support for Sony’s new XAVC codec, as utilised by the F5 and F55.

As Sony’s European Product Manager, Sebastian Leske, explains: “Up to version 1.1, upgrades have been free – you only had to pay something if you needed the ‘NXCAM Activation Pack’, which added support for AVC HD and cost US$20,” he says.

Introductory Offer

As part of a special introductory offer, Sony is waiving the charge for version 2.0 of Content Browser. Until the end of May, there’s a free of charge campaign during the handover to version 2.0, where you can get a free activation code. Find out more at

Going forward, if you purchase any camcorder in Sony’s NXCAM, XDCAM or XAVC ranges from the end of May it will come supplied with a licence key for version 2.0 as standard. This is a single key that can be used for one computer only and further licences will have to be purchased.

I thought this worth a bump as you can still get a free serial number.

I recently switched from the older Clip Browser to using the Content Browser. No great difference for what I use it for but it looks a little neater.
Even if you don't need it today, go grab a serial number while its still free.

Thanks, Bob.

I got mine just under the wire. I rarely use my EX1 any more, but when I do, I find the Clip Browser (now the Content Browser) a must-have.
