AJA today launched Io X3, a Thunderbolt™ 3-connected professional video and audio I/O device offering HDR or SDR 2K/HD/SD capture and output via 3G-SDI and HDMI. The compact, rugged, and portable device streamlines high-quality HDR I/O up to 2K/HD 60p on compatible Thunderbolt™ 3-equipped Mac or PC hosts running professional video and audio applications.

Io X3 provides an incredibly powerful mobile solution for single-, dual-, and multi-channel SDI workflows whether working remotely, on-set, or in a studio. It delivers pristine 2K/HD/SD I/O with HDR directly from Thunderbolt 3 enabled modern laptops and desktop computers. Lightning-fast, flexible, and whisper-quiet, the device is an ideal capture and output solution for nearly any production environment, including high-end color grading, audio mixing, on-set monitoring, or playback, remote editorial and VFX. It includes four independent inputs for workflows with OBS and Wirecast, and simultaneous MultiView monitoring for each source, making it a perfect match for live streaming demands.

Eight switchable analog audio ports via a DB25 port are integrated into the device so that users can easily shift between eight channels in or out, or split connectivity between four inputs and four outputs. A 3.5mm stereo analog audio connection is also included, allowing users to plug headphones in directly. Io X3 devices are compact and rackmountable and fit easily side by side into a rack, allowing users to benefit from up to eight channels of up to 2K/HD/SD I/O in 1RU.

AJA today unveiled Desktop Software v16.2 for all KONA, Io, and T-TAP Pro products, in addition to AJA SDK v16.2 for Developer Partners. This feature-rich release introduces a wide range of workflow enhancements, including support for macOS Monterey and Windows 11, OBS Studio compatibility, support for the new Io X3, and more.

Desktop Software v16.2 enables greater flexibility and more accurate, vivid 4K/UltraHD color workflows, courtesy of new 12-bit, 4:4:4, RGB firmware for KONA 5 and Corvid 44 12G, with support for a full 12-bit pipeline across capture to color space conversion and output. This functionality is backed by an upgrade to the .cube format for all 12-bit and 10-bit LUT capabilities, bringing greater compatibility between AJA hardware and third-party color and mastering applications. Workflow options with included AJA Control Room software are expanded through the addition of H.264 and H.265 capture and playback up to 2K/HD 60p, including Timecode and Closed Captioning support, and further provide seamless compatibility with mobile devices, PCs, and AJA Ki Pro GO media. This release also includes new deep memory buffer capabilities for Control Room to maintain steady and pristine playback in the event that storage or network bottlenecks interrupt the flow of data from storage to the video output host. With the introduction of Io X3, a new MultiView feature allows up to four incoming SDI sources to be monitored on a single external HDMI monitor, providing a confidence view for multi-channel workflows with OBS Studio and Telestream Wirecast.

In addition to the traditional AJA Developer Program enrollment, AJA’s world-class SDK v16.2 is also now available via Open Source, offering multiple options for developers looking to incorporate powerful AJA technologies into product design and development.
