Red is to add Avid’s DNxHR and Avid DNxHD codecs to its Weapon, Scarlet-W and Red Raven cameras.

The Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHD formats will be made available via a free firmware upgrade in the middle of the year.

Red president Jarred Land said: “With the ability to shoot RedCode Raw simultaneously alongside Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHD, [our customers] are getting the best of two worlds from both the acquisition and post perspectives.

“This collaboration between Red and Avid is going to be music to the ears for a lot of the industry, and I could not be happier.”

Avid chief executive and president Louis Hernandez Jr added: “For years, people have been shooting on Red and then editing within Avid software solutions.

“Now, with Avid codecs being an in-camera tool within Red’s cameras, it ensures that the mutual customers of both Red and Avid have a much more seamless integration for their projects.”
