Avid Artist | DNxIO is a powerful, professional video I/O interface designed to simplify and accelerate your entire HD, Ultra HD, 2K, and 4K workflow. Available as standalone hardware or bundled with industry-standard Media Composer software, Artist | DNxIO enables you to capture, monitor, and output media quickly—in the highest quality possible. And because the interface, which includes hardware by Blackmagic Design, is designed to be open and flexible, you can use it with Avid and other creative tools too.
Capture and play back stunning high-resolution video
Create and deliver rich, detailed media in the highest quality imaginable, from first ingest to final output. Artist | DNxIO features advanced 6G-SDI, 12G-SDI, and HDMI 2.0 connections that enable you to work with HD, 2K, 4K, and other super high-resolution material—at up to 60 fps and 12-bit color—in 2D or stereoscopic 3D. 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 or want.
Create with your favorite video and audio tools
With support for an ever-growing list of Avid and third-party media tools, Artist | DNxIO is an easy and ideal fit for any production environment. Capture and edit footage with Media Composer, Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve, and other video editing software. Use After Effects, Photoshop, Fusion, and other software to get the looks you want. And couple it with Pro Tools and other popular DAWs to work on your audio.
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. 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 blazingly fast computer connection speeds, delivering the lowest possible latency and greatest time sync accuracy (includes PCIe too).
This software update adds support for more DNxHR profiles and audio punch-in for Avid Artist DNxIO. The update also adds output conversions for analog connections, improved genlock offset and fixes intermittent PCIe detection issue on some older PCs for both UltraStudio 4K Extreme and Artist DNxIO. This software update also fixes an issue when recording to tape from DaVinci Resolve for all Desktop Video products.
