The result of a technology partnership between AJA Video Systems and Avid, the Avid Artist | DNxIV hardware interface option for Avid Media Composer has been introduced at IBC.
The Thunderbolt 3 capture and output device offers 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 I/O connectivity, various audio features and 4K/UltraHD support up to 50p/60p frame rates.
According to AJA, it’s similar to AJA’s newly announced Io 4K Plus, but built to Avid’s specifications adding a built-in audio input for an analogue microphone on the front of the device. This new feature was created to simplify direct 16-bit analogue recording for audio punch in.
DNxIV also offers connectivity options including 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 I/O, and is compatible with 4K/UltraHD devices. It includes an additional Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining to other Thunderbolt devices.
It’s scheduled for availability in mid-October for $2,999.
