    "New Avids & HDV editing"

     Hello everyone,

    We have a Sony HVR-V1U HDV camera that we're currently using in SD mode, with 2 Adrenalines running on HP XW8000 platforms. I've been researching whether to add a DNXHD board to each of the Adrenalines in order to be able to really use the camera to full advantage. 

    As of yesterday, I was leaning towards buying the boards, but after reading the posts on the new Avid line-up that's coming out, I feel like we might be buying into obsolete technology if we go that way. I'm wondering if upgrading to the new Nitris DX Media Composer might be a better solution for HDV post production.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

     Definately wait for NitrisDX if you can, it's very nice. Probably won't be out until 2Q, and you should wait a release cycle if you can. What's being shown at NAB is still beta, and has a few bugs. As for HDV, the 1394 would connect to the CPU w/DX, or you can go in HD-SDI. With NitrisDX you can play a lot more streams in real time.
