Avid squeezes HD through SD infrastructure
Using the rack mountable Avid DNxchange system, users can encode HD-SDI signals from cameras, switchers, routers and decks to an Avid DNxHD media.
Avid released the Avid DNxchange, a I/O system that enables broadcasters to work with HD media without the need to upgrade their SD SDIs and routers.
Using the rack mountable Avid DNxchange system, users can encode HD-SDI signals from cameras, switchers, routers and decks to an Avid DNxHD media. Once the HD-SDI material is encoded to the DNxHD format, users can move the HD media over existing SD-SDI infrastructures within their facilities. In addition, the Avid DNxchange system can convert DNxHD media into uncompressed HD files and output the media to any device with an HD-SDI interface.
The Avid DNxchange was designed to give broadcasters an easy way to begin working with HD media without having to replace the widely-deployed SDI and router technologies they have in place today. Most organisations have made significant investments to the underlying infrastructure within their facilities, and Avid DNxchange helps to preserve the value of those investments while facilitating the transition to HD.
The Avid DNxchange board is planned for release in the second half of 2005.
