AJA IO 4k Mobile Thunderbolt I/O

The AJA IO 4K is the next evolution of capture and output hardware offering a full set of professional video and audio connectivity with support for the latest 4K and UltraHD devices and High Frame Rate workflows. The power of Thunderbolt 2 enables Io 4K to handle a wide range of formats from SD to HD, UltraHD and full 4K over both 3G-SDI and HDMI and support 4K frame rates up to 60p, plus HDR 10 and HLG support over HDMI for emerging HDR workflows.

Professional connectivity

Have the connectivity required for today’s variety of productions. Io 4K supports 4K, UltraHD, 3G-SDI, Dual Link, HD-SDI and SD-SDI as well as UltraHD and HD over HDMI 1.4a for both capture and output. The HDMI output is also able to accurately display HDR 10, HLG to support emerging HDR workflows.

Thunderbolt 2 technology allows even greater bandwidth between host computer systems and properly engineered Thunderbolt devices. AJA’s Io 4K takes full advantage of this improved throughput to allow capture and output of video signals from SD to 4K and everything in between.

Powerful

Thunderbolt 2 technology increases the available bandwidth that can be carried on a single Thunderbolt cable. Io 4K capitalizes on this increased capacity to allow up to 4K signals to be captured and output.

With dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, compatible with Thunderbolt 3, Io 4K can daisy chain additional devices together such as high resolution displays and high capacity storage for a complete, portable solution that’s powerful enough to meet the demands of professional production.

Extensive software support

AJA hardware is supported by an extensive list of professional software for editing, visual effects, graphics and more allowing the same AJA device to be used by many different applications on the same system. In addition, AJA provides several free applications that enable you to utilize the power of your AJA hardware even without having to run a particular software package. This allows you to create unique workflows without tying up valuable resources unnecessarily.

Workflow

Connect your digital sources via 3G-SDI to Io 4K for capture to a wide variety of formats.
