Capture pristine quality video
Create and deliver content in the highest quality imaginable—from first ingest to final output. Each interface offers a host of professional, premium-quality video and audio connectors, providing support for a variety of video cameras, devices, and high frame-rate workflows. Handle HD, Ultra HD, and full 4K media with ease—at up to 60 fps—and everything in between.
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, including Media Composer and, with Avid Artist | DNxIQ and DNxIV, Pro Tools. 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. All interfaces also provide 48V of phantom power, so you can use condenser mics without requiring a separate audio interface or power supply.
Boost your bandwidth
Get the reliable throughput you need to handle high-resolution formats. Both 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). Experience exceptional performance, highly accurate time sync, and ultra-low latency—even with bandwidth-intensive 4K workflows.
Accelerate your workflow
Avid Artist I/O offers additional benefits to speed and ease your workflow. With onboard down-, up-, and cross-conversion, you can quickly scale media to meet your production needs. Plus, you can keep things in perfect sync with the internal clock, genlock reference, and linear time code lock.
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 delivers 8 channels of audio through a DB25 audio connection (breakout cable sold separately).
