EVS announces Avid DNxHD codec support

EVS Broadcast Equipment has integrated full, native support for Avid Technology’s DNxHD codec in its XT[2] production server.

The move follows the recent news that DNxHD is the first to be compliant with SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) VC-3 standards.

The Avid DNxHD codec was approved by the SMPTE organization as the framework for the VC-3 family of standards, which enable content creators to facilitate efficient encoding and exchange of HD media.

The multichannel XT[2] production server is used for the ingest, organization and playout of premium-quality video for studio, outside broadcasting, stadium and other live or near-live productions. Because of the XT[2] server's native support of the DNxHD codec, no transcoding process is required between the XT[2] and Avid's post-production tools. Native media quality is also preserved throughout any transfer processes.
