Avid Introduces High-Resolution Video IO System to Meet the Growing Demands of High-Res Content Production
Avid Artist | DNxIO includes hardware by Blackmagic Design, a new IO Connectivity Partner for the MediaCentral Platform.
"As more and more productions move to greater-than-HD resolution, it is important for video professionals to have the integrated hardware and software they need to take on any project," said
"We are very excited to be working with Avid as an IO Connectivity Partner," said
Avid Artist | DNxIO enables video professionals to capture, monitor and output Ultra HD, 2K and 4K media, as well as HD and SD formats, making it immediately available across the Avid MediaCentral Platform. Avid Artist | DNxIO features a flexible form factor that fits in standard 19-inch equipment racks for easy integration into any workstation or edit bay.
