Avid and AJA have revealed that they’ve been working together to develop a new I/O device for Avid Media Composer users called Avid Artist | DNxIP. The new device accomodates IP workflows, allowing users to send and recieve media over a network.
The new I/O device is set support high frame rate with deep color and HDR IP workflows. And thanks to its equipped Thunderbolt 3 connection, the Avid Artist | DNxIP is supposed to be able to transfer SMPTE standard HD video over 10 GigE IP networks with local monitoring over 3G-SDI and HDMI 2.0. “Avid Artist | DNxIP leverages the power of Thunderbolt 3 to facilitate simple, fast HD/SD video and audio ingest/output from/to IP networks,” says AJA in a press release, “It features dual Thunderbolt 3 ports for daisy chaining, and two SFP+ cages for video and audio routing over 10 GigE IP networks.”
It’s report to offer HD and 2K video streaming over IP, which Avid says will allow you to receive media from pretty much any camera, computer or device that you have on your network, and in turn, stream your content to any device with an Ethernet connection. In addition, it’s said to offer support SMPTE 2011-6 uncompressed video, audio and VANC data over IP and SMPTE 2022-7 to enable redundancy protection.
Avid also says that they’ve engineered the Avid Artist | DNxIP based around the new lo IP and have placed a XLR audio input right in the front.
Alan Hoof, VP of Market Solutions for Avid, believes that Avid Artist | DNxIP is great for any newsroom or post environment, saying that :
“The increased agility and efficiency of IP workflows is a must have for content creators and broadcasters in today’s competitive climate.” He later went on to say that “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.”
Avid Artist | DNxIP will be released in early 2018 through authorized Avid resellers. You can find out more about this device at avid.com.
