From Avid

Get the bandwidth, versatility, and efficiency you need to capture, monitor, and output high-res media. Avid® Artist™ 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 | DNxIQ™, Avid Artist | DNxIV™, Avid Artist | DNxIP™ , and Avid Artist | DNxID™—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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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).


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.
