Avid’s New Video-over-IP Interface Delivers Thunderbolt 3 Connectivity

As the latest addition to its I/O family of hardware interfaces, Avid has unveil a new video-over-IP interface called Artist | DNxIP that enables broadcasters and large post-production facilities to connect their entire studios over IP for greater flexibility and efficiency.

Built in partnership with AJA Video Systems, Avid Artist | DNxIP is a Thunderbolt 3-compatible I/O device that enables the transfer of SMPTE standard HD video over 10 GigE IP networks, with high-quality local monitoring over 3G-SDI and HDMI 2.0. The highly portable desktop box—which is powered by Avid’s MediaCentral software-centric platform—eliminates the challenges of managing physical resources associated with legacy video routing over SDI and gives customers more flexibility in how they route video within their facilities.

Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems, said the new DNxIP is the next evolution of an on-going, joint-development initiative with Avid. The new Avid Artist | DNxIP interface box will be available Q1 2018.
