Center your video editing workflow around the Avid Artist | DNxIO for accelerated processing, ingesting, and output of high resolution video. Connecting to your computer via Thunderbolt 2 with a separately available Thunderbolt cable, or PCI-Express using a separately available slot adapter, 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. See below for more Media Composer features.

Capture and Play Back High-Resolution Video
Create and deliver rich, detailed, high quality media from first ingest to final output. Artist | DNxIO features 12G-SDI, optical, and HDMI 2.0 connections that enable you to work with HD, 2K, Ultra HD and 4K material. It supports frame rates up to 60 fps, bit depth up to 12 bits, and 2D or stereoscopic 3D media. And because it comes jam-packed with a wide array of analog and digital connections, it can be used with just about every camera, deck, display, and device you have.
Create with Avid or Other 3rd Party Tools
With support for an ever-growing list of Avid and third-party media tools, Artist | DNxIO is an easy fit for production environments. Capture and edit footage with Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, or other video editing software. Use After Effects, Photoshop, Fusion, and other software to get the looks you want. And couple it with Pro Tools or another popular DAW to work on your audio.
Work Quickly and Efficiently
More than just an I/O device, DNxIO offers additional benefits to speed up and ease your workflow. Edit massive 4K files more easily by using the built-in hardware encoder to capture to native Avid formats. Quickly convert media and color spaces with onboard hardware processing. Connect a mic to the front panel for convenient audio punch-in workflows. Monitor media ingest and output on the built-in LCD screen. Select inputs with a press of a button. And with Thunderbolt 2 technology, you get fast computer connection speeds, delivering the lowest possible latency and greatest time sync accuracy.
Accelerate Avid Media Composer
Bundle DNxIO with Media Composer and you can edit 2K, Ultra HD, 4K, and other high-res media natively. Work in any resolution with Avid Resolution Independence. Experience real-time high-res editing with Avid DNxHR. Directly edit a wide range of file-based media without transcoding. And because you can automate time-consuming tasks in the background, you'll have more time to focus on telling your story.
