The AJA Io XT is a professional video I/O with Thunderbolt technology. Compact, portable and powerful, it is loaded with high end features including 3G/dual-link/HD/SD-SDI, component analogue and HMDI connectivity. Apple's newest generation of computers feature powerful Thunderbolt interfaces, offering a mind-blowing 10Gbps available bandwidth - and AJA's Io XT is the ideal portable companion for lightning-fast video capture and playback for professional post-production and on-set applications. Io XT connects to your Mac with a single Thunderbolt cable and provides a second Thunderbolt connector for daisy-chaining other Thunderbolt-enabled devices, such as storage, making it perfect for on-set, or in the edit suite.

Designed for today's workflows, Io XT provides complete compatibility with the most popular NLE programs, the newest codecs, video formats, stereoscopic 3D workflows, and more. Io XT features full 10-bit, broadcast-quality, motion-adaptive SD to HD up-conversion, HD to HD cross-conversion, HD to SD down-conversion, and automatic HD/SD 12-bit component analogue output. Since all conversion functionality on the Io XT is hardware-based, it's available all the time on ingest or playback. Uniquely, the Io XT can cross-convert 720p 23.98 to 1080PsF 23.98. Cross-conversion is particularly valuable in today's multi-format HD post environment where producing pristine 720p or 1080i signals at will helps streamline dailies and deliverables.

AJA's software integrates with the native environment where used, and includes powerful standalone capability within the AJA Control Room software. AJA Control Room provides a unified, all-encompassing, graphically rich and intuitive software application for controlling selected AJA and non-AJA equipment to enable configuration, video and audio capture conversation, playback and output. It eliminates the multiple applications often required and instead replaces them with one comprehensive environment that does it all. AJA Control Room supports a wide range of video still image and audio file types
