AJA Video Systems has announced two new products from the InterBEE exhibit floor, the Io LD and LA. The Io devices are designed for digital or analog signal conversion for output to decks and monitors. The LD and LA feature both 10-bit uncompressed video and 24-bit multi-channel audio in both analog and digital formats. According to AJA Video Systems:
AJA Video Systems today announced two new products in the Io family, Io LD and Io LA. Both Io LD and Io LA support the highest quality 10-bit uncompressed video available - on both the digital and analog inputs and outputs.
These smaller and lower cost relatives of Io are application specific: Io LD is designed to work with SDI digital systems, and Io LA is for analog component or composite systems. Io LD and Io LA will make their first worldwide appearance at InterBEE in Hall 6, Stand 6110, along with AJAis dealer, Focal Point Computer, Inc.
Both Io LD and Io LA work with Final Cut Pro 4 and connect to the Apple Power Mac with a single 400mb FireWire cable. Like Io, Io LD and LA have multi-channel 24-bit audio, RS-422 machine control, and Genlock. Because of their small size, Io LD and Io LA can be used in either a desktop configuration or be mounted in an optional 1 RU mounting bracket, also available from AJA.
You can find more information about the Io LD and LA releases at the AJA Video Systems Web site. The Io LD or LA are available for US$1,190.00 each.
