Leading AJA’s new product line-up is Io 4K Plus, the next generation of its capture and output hardware devices and its first Thunderbolt 3 product.

It’s designed for the latest 4K/Ultra HD devices with connectivity options including 12G/6G/3G/1.5G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 I/O for 4K, Ultra HD, 2K, HD and SD with HFR support up to 60p at 4:2:2.

Scheduled for availability in mid-October for $2,495, it supports creative tools such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple FCP X and Avid Media Composer. Io 4K Plus also includes an additional Thunderbolt 3 port for daisy-chaining flexibility.

“Tight deadlines and technology shifts have introduced a new layer of complexity to post production workflows. Io 4K Plus with Thunderbolt 3 support reduces that complexity by moving high-resolution, high frame rate files through a single cable with ease,” said AJA president Nick Rashby.

Also debuting on the AJA stand are technologies including a new line of FiDO 12G to fibre/fibre to 12G mini-converters; desktop software v14 for its Kona, Io and T-TAP products; and new 3G-SDI multi-mode fibre extender cards for its line of openGear-compatible video and audio rack cards.

The company is also supporting HDR10+ in the developer SDK for its video and audio I/O products that support 4K workflows. “With dynamic metadata, picture quality can be adjusted scene-by-scene, and the image quality is stunning,” said Rashby.

“We’re very excited about offering HDR10+ support as part of our SDK available to developer partners, ensuring our partners can bring all the latest tools for HDR production to users as fast as possible.”
