AJA Io 4K

The AJA Io 4K is the next step in capture and output hardware offering a full array 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.

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. (Thunderbolt cables not included)

Io 4K offers broad and futureproof support for formats all the way from SD to 4K. The realtime down-converter also means you can work at higher resolutions and easily create lower resolution deliverables without the need to recapture or re-edit.

Io 4K provides this support for your 4K/UltraHD/2K and HD HDR pipelines to HDMI compatible displays in software v12.5 and above by offering HDR 10 support with HDR Infoframe metadata, in accordance with HDMI 2.0a/CTA-861.3. Desktop Software v13 introduces HLG support over HDMI for the latest versions of Adobe Premiere CC.
