The MainConcept VC-3 Encoder and Decoder SDKs for Avid DNxHD and Avid DNxHR are software-only components enabling application developers to integrate with production tools like Avid Media Composer and Avid Interplay storage solutions or cameras. Avid DNxHD and DNxHR are based on SMPTE 2019-2006 (VC-3). DNxHD allows 8-bit and 10-bit depth with 4:2:2 chroma sampling of 1920x1080 and 1280x720 pixels at bitrates up to 220 Mbps. DNxHR extends the range of resolutions up to 4k (3840 x 2160 pixels) with chroma sampling up to 4:4:4 and 12-bit depth. The SDK supports wrapping and unwrapping DNxHD/DNxHR content in and from MXF containers.
Full Compliance with Avid Production Tools
The VC-3 Encoder and Decoder SDK components are fully compliant with the Avid production tools Media Composer and Interplay. The Encoder component exposes compatible profiles to guarantee native file exchange with Avid tools. Content created with them can be played back by the MainConcept VC-3 Decoder.
Support for up to 4K Resolutions
Native DNxHD support allowing 8-bit / 10-bit depth with 4:2:2 chroma sampling of 1920x1080 and 1280x720 pixels at bitrates up to 220 Mbps. Extended DNxHR profiles for resolutions up to 4k (3840 x 2160 pixels) with chroma sampling up to 4:4:4 and 12-bit depth.
MXF File Format Support
Besides VC-3 Elementary Stream support, the MainConcept SDK Packages provides MXF Multiplexer and Demultiplexer components to create and playback Avid DNxHD as well as DNxHR compliant content of the container level.
