The Avid Artist | DNxIO STandalone unit enhances your video editing workflow by allowing accelerated processing, ingesting, and output of high resolution video. Connecting to your computer is via Thunderbolt 2 or PCI-Express which are available seperately. The Artist | DNxIO provides low-latency A/V processing, with native Avid codec support for real-time encoding and decoding of formats like DNxHD and DNxHR.

The Artist | DNxIO offers a multitude of connections for video of nearly any resolution from NTSC standard definition (525i) up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) over 12G-SDI, HDMI, or analog. Audio can be input or output via balanced XLR, AES/EBU BNC, front panel microphone input, unbalanced analog RCA (input only), or embedded in HDMI or SDI streams. With optional hardware, you can even take advantage of optical I/O for long distance signal transmission. All video can be monitored using the onboard LCD display for confidence. Because of its standard form factor the Artist | DNxIO can be rackmounted, taking up 3 RU.


Included with the Artist | DNxIO hardware is a fully functional perpetual license for Avid's Media Composer NLE software. Media Composer works hand-in-hand with the Artist | DNxIO to provide real-time 4K editing in Avid pro video formats for professional applications in cinema, ENG, and broadcast.
