Accelerate creative editorial with Media Composer
Bundle DNxIO with Media Composer and you gain the advantages of having the most trusted and proven editorial tool in the industry at your fingertips. Edit 2K, 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 best story possible.

Work faster and more easily
More than just an in and out device, DNxIO offers additional benefits to speed and ease your workflow. Edit massive 4K files more easily by using the built-in hardware encoder to capture to Avid DNxHR, coming soon as a future no-cost software upgrade*. Quickly convert media and color spaces with onboard hardware processing. Connect a mic to the front panel for convenient audio punch-in workflows.

Media Composer:

Play back high-res ProRes and XAVC-I media natively
Optimized performance for ProRes and XAVC-I gives you added flexibility to mix and match high-res media in the timeline, from DNxHR to ProRes to XAVC-I, and edit with smooth real-time playback.

Deliver more detailed action
Media Composer now supports higher frame rates, including 48p and 60p with HD, 2K, 4K, and Ultra HD media, enabling you to preserve more image information and natural motion with stunning clarity—even in the most chaotic action scenes. Plus, you’ll enjoy more flexibility when creating motion effects.

Produce more vivid, truer imagery
Get access to the full range of new color standards that high-res projects demand, enabling you to deliver content with the richest, most realistic color detail for the medium at hand. With Media Composer, you can now work in BT.2020 (for Ultra HD broadcast) and DCI-P3 (for 2K and 4K Digital Cinema projectors), in addition to Rec. 709 (for HDTV broadcast). Once installed, LUTs (Look Up Tables) can be made universally available across all projects, or privately available to a current project, and can then be applied as clip- and track-based effects.

Eliminate the wait with background rendering and transcoding
Gain more time to focus on your story instead of waiting for effects to render and transcodes to complete. With these tasks handled completely in the background, you can greatly speed up the editorial process—especially when working with 4K media, which can take around 4x longer to render than 1080p HD media.

Overcome today’s (and tomorrow’s) technology challenges
Gain the commanding edge and stay at the forefront of the media industry with a steady stream of new updates and features that enable you to work with the latest media formats and technologies. Media Composer already supports the industry’s most extensive range of file-based media, codecs, and third-party products, plus real-time remote collaboration. And with new Avid Resolution Independence and accelerated high-res and HD workflows, it's the only tool that advances your editorial integrity and versatility—now and in the future.
