    Does the MPEG HD option give you any benefit over XAVC in HD on Avid?

    Sony CBKZ-SLMP overview With this MPEG HD Recording Upgrade License from Sony, you can enable MPEG-format HD recording on your PXW-X70 or PXW-FS5 camcorder. MPEG video is used in many professional broadcast workflows and is compatible with most NLE software without requiring time-consuming format conversion. Depending on the application, two different bit-rates will be available for selection, 50 and 35 Mbps. The 50 Mbps affords 4:2:2 chroma subsampling for broadcast-quality video, while the more streamlined 35 Mbps selection offers 4:2:0 chroma subsampling.

    That sounds like the non-branded version of XDCAM HD (50 Mb) and XDCAM EX/HDV (35 Mb). 

    I assume Sony offers it for certain users that need to streamline their workflow from production to broadcast while utilizing more modern cameras.

    XAVC is a better format in terms of visual quality. It just requires more processing power than MPEG.
