FotoKem Adopts New High-Resolution Video IO System from Avid for 4K Projects


LR-Artist-DNxIO_Angle_Enlarged-emailLR-Artist-DNxIO_Angle_EnlargedLos Angeles-based post house FotoKem has purchased Avid Artist | DNxIO interfaces to accelerate production of 4K projects. Combined with Media Composer video editing software, Avid Artist | DNxIO will give FotoKem the tools it needs to more quickly and efficiently create high-resolution media.

With more and more film and television productions being captured in 4K and Ultra-HD formats, FotoKem was looking for a way to deliver high-resolution projects quickly and efficiently.

“We were very excited by the recent launch of Avid Artist | DNxIO and its potential to help us cut and deliver 4K content faster and more efficiently,” said Jon Mauldin, VP of technology non-linear, FotoKem. “We jumped at the chance to be the first customer to invest in the new interface to help us manage the growing number of high-resolution projects we’re taking on.”

Launched in April, the Avid Artist | DNxIO interface delivers high-res video ingest, editing, monitoring and output. Built on the Avid MediaCentral Platform, the interface is compatible with any Avid Artist Suite system and many third-party creative tools, including Blackmagic Resolve, Apple Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere Pro.

“As more productions shift towards higher resolutions, video professionals need integrated hardware and software to enable them to take on any project,” said Jeff Rosica, senior vice president, worldwide field operations, Avid. “FotoKem’s significant investment in Avid Artist | DNxIO demonstrates the urgent need for a cutting-edge, yet affordable solution to overcome the challenges that high-resolution projects bring.”

A long-standing Avid customer, FotoKem’s credits include features like Interstellar and Warner Bros. film San Andreas, as well as primetime television shows including Better Call Saul, Homeland and Dancing with the Stars.
