Avid’s DNxHR and DNxHD are known for their ability to reduce storage and bandwidth requirements, and Avid DNxHD has been accepted by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers as the foundation format for the VC-3 standard.
Additionally, these formats offer a direct-to-edit experience for professionals looking to preserve image quality and leverage their investments in Avid in-house production systems. With Avid codecs being an in-camera tool within Red cameras, users will be able to shoot RedCode RAW simultaneously alongside Avid’s DNxHR and DNxHD.
The Avid DNxHR and DNxHD formats will be added to the existing recording capability that Red’s DSMC2 cameras currently offer via RedCode RAW and Apple ProRes formats. Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHD will be made available via a free firmware upgrade in mid-2016.
