Avid AVRs compared to DigiSuite data rates

Based on our comparisons here, 3.5mb/Sec is closest to AVR-75 on Avid. I say "closest" because it is still clearly cleaner than Avid. Avid has a severe DCT step which removes a great deal of high frequency from the image. You don't see as much artifacting, but the overall picture is much softer (much less detail).

4.5mb/Sec is closer to AVR-77, but yet still cleaner. We do the majority of our work at 7mb/sec even hough we have the capability to do lossless. We just don't see the need to "waste" the extra disk space.

You can assure your clients that DigiSuite is ABSOLUTELY cleaner than Avid. No question. Even Avid has to admit this.

Hope this helps.
