AJA details Io XT for video editing professionals

AJA Video on Friday released its Io XT. The add-on connects to a Mac with a Thunderbolt interface and can daisy-chain to another or other video devices through a variety of connections. It support many capture and playback formats, unifying them through its 10-bit hardware up-, down- and cross-conversion capability.

There are also two 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and outputs. The included HDMI input and output support 3D, while a single-link SDI has 4:2:2 support and the single- and dual-link SDI has 4:4:4 support. A 10-bit analog HD/SD component and composite output is also there.

A nine-pin RS422 connector allows hooking up professional video cameras.

Users can capture, monitor and master uncompressed video content to Apple ProRes, DVCProHD, CineForm, Avid DNxHD and other programs. The front panel houses LED VU meters.

Io XT will ship this fall at $1,495.

The hardware will ship with the equally new AJA Control Room software that allows controlling AJA and other equipment to allow configuration, audio and video capture, conversion, playback and output through a graphically rich interface.

The company further revealed an update to the Kona LHe with the LHe Plus. The video capture card has a number of improvements while costing nearly a quarter less than the original. It ships in October for $995.
