Avid released the 2U, rackmountable Avid Artist | DNxIQ at NAB back in April, and for many vendors that would have been enough. Not Avid. At IBC, they’re back with the even smaller Avid Artist | DNxIV.
Link the DNxIQ, it offers high-speed Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which gives users 40 Gbps bandwidth. This is coupled with a wide range of analogue and digital I/O, including SDI, HDMI, XLR, RS-422 and Timecode. And even better, it’ll work with Media Composer, FCP X and Premiere Pro.
The DNxIQ is larger because it supports more legacy connections: the DNxIV has no PCIe connectivity and doesn’t support SD, universal mastering or Resolve. It also does away with the LCD panel that was on the front of the DNxIQ.
However, it does have HDMI 2.ob connectivity, an audio breakout cable with eight I/O and reference input, enabling you to get 5.1 and 7.1 surround mixing right out of the box. It’s designed to be digital-centric and portable, rather than the all around workhorse that the DNxIQ is. To work out which is right for you, get in touch with our team on the details below.
