Avid Artist I/O—Beautiful performance


Get the bandwidth, versatility, and efficiency you need to capture, monitor, and output high-res media. Avid® ArtistTM I/O interfaces offer extensive format support, enabling you to respond quickly to changing demands and deliver content to a wider range of channels and devices. With four interfaces to choose from—Avid Artist | DNxIQTM, Avid Artist | DNxIVTM, Avid Artist | DNxIPTM , and Avid Artist | DNxIDTM—you can plug into any professional production and work with HD, high-res, HDR, and surround sound content. It’s the smartest way to simplify your workflow, so you can complete projects faster.

CHOOSE FROM FOUR UNIQUE INTERFACES

While all Avid Artist I/O interfaces deliver exceptional performance and reliability, each benefits different workflows. Avid Artist | DNxIQ offers the most extensive connectivity, onboard DNxHR® encoding, and Universal Mastering for larger video post environments. Avid Artist | DNxIV offers quad SDI and 8-channel surround sound monitoring in a portable 4K solution for smaller video editing, post production, and news. Avid Artist | DNxIP enables HD and 2K video over IP, ideal for news and post production. And Avid Artist | DNxID offers a super affordable, ultra-portable solution for editors who need professional-grade I/O on the go.

GET CONNECTED

Avid Artist I/O offers a wide range of analog and digital I/O to plug into today’s diverse media productions. Connect all of your gear—from 4K cameras, video decks, and UHD devices, to HDR and audio monitors, mics, and switchers. Each interface provides a different complement of connectivity, which may include SDI, optical, HDMI, IP, XLR, and more, to tie your studio together.

USE YOUR FAVORITE TOOLS

Avid Artist I/O is an easy fit for any production, working with a wide range of professional Avid and third-party video editing, audio, visual effects, and graphics software. This gives you the flexibility to capture, edit, monitor, output, and deliver high-quality content using the tools you know and love now—and the solutions you may want in the future.

RECORD VOICEOVERS EASILY

Need to overdub some dialog or narration? It’s easy. Only Avid Artist I/O enables you to capture high-quality recordings through direct audio punch-ins to the Media Composer® timeline using the front-panel XLR microphone input. Each interface also provides 48V of phantom power, so you can use condenser mics without requiring a separate audio interface or power supply.

BOOST YOUR BANDWIDTH

Experience exceptional performance, highly accurate time sync, and ultra-low latency—even with bandwidth-intensive 4K workflows. All interfaces feature lightning-fast Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, providing transfer speeds up to 40 Gb/s to your Mac or Windows-based host computer (Avid Artist | DNxIQ also offers optional PCIe connectivity).

MONITOR SURROUND SOUND MIXES

No need to connect a separate audio monitoring solution into your workflow. You can monitor 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound mixes using any of the interfaces. Avid Artist | DNxIQ offers 8 channels of audio through SDI and HDMI (embedded audio). Avid Artist| DNxIV and DNxIP deliver 8 channels of audio through a DB25 audio connection (breakout cable sold separately). And Artist | DNxID provides 8 channels of audio through HDMI. In addition, you can use DNxIQ and DNxIV with Pro Tools for video playback to a monitor to mix audio and compose music to picture, as well as edit dialog, ADR, and Foley.
