Avid today unveiled the latest addition to the Avid family of hardware interfaces known as Avid Artist | DNxIP. 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 Avid's MediaCentral workflow platform, Avid Artist | DNxIP will be equipped to enable 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 desktop box will be portable enough to eliminate the need for managing physical resources associated with legacy video routing over SDI. Thus giving customers more flexibility in how they route video over IP 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,” added Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
DNxIP will be made available to customers in Q1 of 2018.
