Get greater beauty without the bandwidth
When we introduced Avid DNxHD, we gave you “beauty without the bandwidth,” enabling you to work with and master HD media easily, without blowing your storage budget. And now we’re expanding these same benefits to high-res. With Avid DNxHR, you can work with a wider range of resolutions to fit your task at hand—from lightweight proxies that are a fraction of the raw file sizes for high-performance editorial (making remote collaboration easier), to even more mastering resolutions, including 2K and 4K for delivery. Plus, it’s completely backwards compatible with DNxHD, as it’s built on the same extensible, standards-based media codec.
