Thunderbolt Solutions from AJA

Bring more power, speed and simplicity to your workflows with Thunderbolt™ solutions from AJA.

Compact professional editing without compromise

Apple’s latest generation computers feature powerful Thunderbolt™ interfaces, offering a mind-blowing 10Gbps available bandwidth. Taking advantage of this new interface, Io XT is the ideal portable companion for lightning-fast video capture and playback for professional post production and on set applications.

Compact, portable and powerful, Io XT is loaded with high-end features including 3G/Dual Link/HD/SD-SDI, Component Analog and HDMI connectivity, to bring true desktop-level power to any Thunderbolt™-enabled Mac or PC, with full uncompressed HD and SD 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 capable video and audio connectivity.

RS-422 Control

The RS-422 connection on Io XT enables control of external decks and other recording devices directly from within your software application of choice. Capture clips directly off tape and layoff sequences all frame-accurately without the need for a separate device control adapter.

Professional Connectivity

IO XT can handle whatever equipment you are working with. With a full compliment of 3G/HD/SD- SDI and HDMI I/O, HD/SD analog video output, reference and LTC inputs, and digital and analog audio, Io XT opens up new possibilities for what can be considered a professional editing system. No longer confined to deskside tower systems, the combination of Io XT and smaller systems such as an iMac, Mac mini or HP zBook has all the capability and connectivity of a larger system that can be easily transported as needed.

Integrated AJA hardware conversion

IO XT utilizes AJA’s high-quality up/down/cross-conversion hardware, the same found in our flagship FS2 converter. Conversion can be done either on capture or on output. On capture, this allows you to take mismatched source media and bring it all to a common resolution so individual shots don’t have to be scaled in the edit. Likewise, Io XT can perform conversions during output to adapt to different monitoring or layoff configurations without having to change the native editorial timeline. Uniquely, the Io XT can cross-convert 720p 23.98 to 1080PsF 23.98, which is particularly valuable in today’s multi-format HD post environment.

Up-Conversion

Hardware 10-bit
Anamorphic: fullscreen
Pillarbox 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
​​​​​​Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen
Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change

Down-Conversion

Hardware 10-bit
Anamorphic: fullscreen
Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size

Cross-Conversion

Hardware 10-bit
1080i to 720p
720p to 1080i
720p to 1080PsF

SD to SD Aspect Ratio Conversion

Letterbox: This transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image
H Crop: Will produce a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
SD Pillarbox: Will produce an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
V Crop: Will transform SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image
