I suspect bits_per_coded_sample is not written in the mxf files 
(it is written in some other files in the directory).
If you initialize the decoder, you should get the information.
For mpeg2video 4:2:2 as used in the imx samples, it is always 
16 bit per pixel, j2k supports different values, but rgb24 as 
in the sample is always 24bit.
