Avid DNxHD Encoding

Uncompressed HD media is the benchmark of image quality, but it also requires an enormous investment in storage and bandwidth resources. Avid understands this dilemma, and has focused its efforts on developing an HD strategy that provides a viable path for both the film and video postproduction industries.

What separates the Avid HD strategy from all others is Avid DNxHD encoding technology. Simply put, MXF-based Avid DNxHD encoding is engineered for postproduction processing. It provides highly efficient encoding that delivers mastering-quality HD media at standard definition (SD) data rates and file sizes and is poised to become an industry standard.

The data rates of the Avid DNxHD resolutions are, on average, the same as that of uncompressed standard definition (SD) video. Because of this, the infrastructure needed to support HD will be very similar to that needed to support standard definition.

The above information is from the Avid HD Handbook which contains a comprehensive guide to HD terms and technology.
