What is DNxHD?

DNxHD is a high-definition video post-production codec developed by Avid in 2008.

DNxHD footage is usually found in MXF video files as well as in QuickTime mov containers.
DNxHD encoding is available in most professional video recorders:
AJA, Blackmagic, Atomos, Cinedeck, Sound Devices...

A full range of dimensions, bit rates, and bit depths creates the large set of profiles found in the DNxHD files.
DNxHR, introduced in 2014, extends the capabilities of the codec to higher resolutions as 2K, 4K and beyond.

DNxHD is relatively easy to repair and gives excellent results. Video and audio are recovered at original quality.

Main problem we face in such repairs is the presence of mixed streams of footage, usually recorded with a different encoding, most of the times in ProRes format.

But even in those cases, we developed different algorithms to split and repair the footage back at its original status.
