legacy DV-AVI in DS

Working with some DV-AVI files captured previously from mini-DV/DVCAM/DVCPRO25 in Premiere on Windows. When importing either the original AVI or sub-clips exported from Premiere to AVI, into Avid DS...on a 480i sequence going AJA out SDI to a Sony multiformat monitor the AVI looks soft.

Now the editor had already told me that DS and AVI don't play nicely together, but we had to start somewhere. We found that if we use Adobe Media Encoder to transcode the AVI to QT DV using the Avid DV50 codec and import these new files to DS the image is sharper.

I'd appreciate any other ideas short of re-digitizing into a native Avid format.
