Avid Technology has introduced Avid DNxchange, a new I/O device that lets broadcasters work with HD media without the need to upgrade their SD serial digital interfaces (SDIs) and routers.
Using the single-space, rack mountable Avid DNxchange system, professionals can encode HD-SDI signals from cameras, switchers, routers and decks to Avid DNxHD media, which delivers mastering quality HD media with the bandwidth of SD video files. Once the HD-SDI material is encoded to the Avid DNxHD format, users can easily move the HD media over existing SD-SDI infrastructures within their facilities. In addition, the Avid DNxchange system can convert Avid DNxHD media into uncompressed HD files and output the media to any device with an HD-SDI interface.
