Avid Artist | DNxIV—Get full 4K in a portable device


Beautiful performance

Get the bandwidth, versatility, and efficiency you need to capture, monitor, and output high-res media using your favorite video and audio tools. 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, you can plug into any professional production, work with SD, HD, UHD, 4K, HDR, and surround sound content, and leverage such capabilities as video over IP and Universal Mastering. It’s the smartest way to simplify your workflow, so you can complete projects faster.



Get the connections you need

Avid Artist | DNxIV provides all the professional analog and digital I/O you need to plug into today’s diverse media productions. From quad 12G/6G/3G-SDI, HDMI 2, and DB-25, to XLR, LTC, RS-422, and a headphone jack, you have a variety of connections available to integrate your gear together for in-studio video and post production—or wherever inspiration takes you.

Expand your possibilities

Small in size, but vast in versatility, Avid Artist | DNxIV boosts your media production capabilities beyond the standard capture, monitor, and output workflow. Leverage its portability to work on projects out in the field. Record voiceovers directly to the Media Composer timeline with easy audio punch-in. Monitor HDR content. Sync to an external reference. Control tape decks for frame-accurate captures and layoffs. You can even use the interface as an 8-channel audio surround sound monitoring solution.

Edit and mix audio to picture

Avid | Artist DNxIV can also be used with Pro Tools and Pro Tools | Ultimate to support high-quality video playback to a monitor. This makes the interface a versatile solution for mixing audio and composing music to picture, as well as for editing dialog, ADR, and Foley—with better than 1/4-frame sync accuracy.


Future-proof your workflow

Avid Artist I/O interfaces offer extensive HD and high-res format support across four interfaces—Avid Artist | DNxIQ, Avid Artist | DNxIV, new Avid Artist | DNxIP, and new Avid Artist | DNxID. This flexibility future-proofs your production, enabling you to work with today’s high-res formats, while supporting HD and SD too. You can also work with 2K or 4K media and deliver in HD with the onboard real-time down-converter, enabling you to transition to high-res at your own pace. 

Get connected 

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, XLR, RS-422, component, and other connections, to tie together your studio. 

Have the power you need 

The demands of 2K and 4K media can bring any video production to its knees, but not with Avid Artist I/O at the core. With high-speed Thunderbolt 3 connectivity available on all interfaces, you get the bandwidth you need—up to 40 Gb/s—to ensure the smoothest performance and operation. No matter how hard you push it. 

Choose from four unique interfaces 

While all four interfaces deliver exceptional performance and reliability, each benefits different workflows. Avid Artist | DNxIQ offers the most extensive connectivity, plus onboard real-time baseband to Avid 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 solution for independent editors and smaller post-production and news teams. 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.
