Avid’s new video-over-IP interface delivers more flexible and efficient connectivity
Avid has unveiled Avid Artist | DNxIP, the latest addition to the Avid I/O family of hardware interfaces. The new portable interface enables broadcasters and large post production facilities to connect their entire studios over IP for greater flexibility and efficiency.
Built in partnership with AJA and powered by MediaCentral, an open, tightly integrated and efficient platform designed for media, Avid Artist | DNxIP is a Thunderbolt 3 equipped I/O device that enables the transfer of SMPTE standard HD video over 10 GigE IP networks, with high quality local monitoring over 3G-SDI and HDMI 2.0. The highly portable desktop box eliminates the challenges of managing physical resources associated with legacy video routing over SDI and gives customers more flexibility in how they route video within their facilities.
“The increased agility and efficiency of IP workflows is a must have for content creators and broadcasters in today’s competitive climate,” said Alan Hoff, VP of market solutions for Avid. “We’ve collaborated with AJA on the newest addition to our Avid Artist product line, Avid Artist DNxIP, which offers broadcasters and post-production facilities a portable yet powerful video interface for IP workflows.”
“DNxIP is the next evolution of our development efforts with Avid, a trusted technology partner. We’re excited to be teaming up with them again on a next generation hardware option that meets the needs of professional IP workflows,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems.
Avid Artist | DNxIP will be available Q1 2018.
