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. 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. A dedicated, realtime, always on HD-SDI output allows Io 4K to simultaneously output to HD monitors when working at 4K or UltraHD resolutions, providing cost effective monitoring options in addition to full resolution outputs.
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. Take the next step forward, with Io 4K’s support for emerging HDR workflows. HDR offers increased dynamic range, bringing your imagery to life on HDR 10, HLG compatible HDMI displays.
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.
