Io 4K is the next evolution of capture and output hardware offering a full set of professional video and audio connectivity

with support for the latest 4K and UltraHD devices. 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 SDI and HDMI.

The dual Thunderbolt 2 ports on Io 4K allow you to daisy chain additional peripherals such as high-resolution displays

and high-capacity storage with plenty of flexibility.

Io 4K’s elegant, aluminum construction is strong enough to survive the rigors of life in the field, while looking beautiful

in your edit suite. Io 4K seamlessly integrates with leading post-production and delivery tools from Apple, Adobe, Avid,

The latest 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 UHD and HD over HDMI 1.4a for both capture

and output. A dedicated, real time, always-on HD-SDI output allows Io 4K to simultaneously output to HD monitors when

working at 4K or UHD resolutions, providing cost-effective monitoring options in addition to full resolution outputs.

Autodesk, Telestream and many more.

Professional Connectivity

Io 4K has the connectivity required for today’s variety of productions. With full-sized BNC connectors for 4K input and output as well as HDMI 1.4 in and out, Io 4K can handle professional 4 x SDI 4K signals as well as capturing and outputting 4K over HDMI for use with more affordable 4K equipment. An additional BNC provides a dedicated, HD-SDI downconverted output for easy viewing of 4K projects on HD monitors.

When working at 4K resolutions, Io 4K outputs a high-quality HD-SDI down-converted signal on a dedicated BNC connector. This HD signal can be used to output 4K projects directly to HD recorders for broadcast and for easy viewing of 4K images on HD monitors during post-production.

Embedded 16-channel SDI and 8-channel HDMI audio are supported as well as analog audio outputs via a standard DB-25 connection. Stereo monitoring is also possible with 2 x RCA outputs and a front panel mini-TRS headphone jack.

Io 4K can be locked to an external reference for integration into larger productions, or feed LTC in and out to ensure footage captured with Io 4K has the proper timecode. An RS-422 port allows control of tape decks for frame-accurate captures and layoffs.

Futureproof

With more affordable high-resolution cameras available, many productions are opting to shoot at a higher resolution even if final delivery is still in SD or HD. This offers the flexibility to re-master at higher resolutions in the future.

Io 4K can support your current SD and HD workflows and provides a path to move to higher resolution productions whenever the need arises. The realtime downconverter also means you can work at higher resolutions and easily create lower resolution deliverables without the need to recapture or re-edit. All at a size that’s small enough to easily take on-set or in the field.

Powerful

Thunderbolt 2 technology provides an incredible amount of bandwidth 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, 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.

Compatible

Seamlessly integrate Io 4K with leading post-production and delivery tools such as Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Creative Cloud, AJA Control Room, Telestream Wirecast 5 and more. Io 4K gives you the flexibility to use the software tools that are appropriate for your workflow while maintaining a consistent, high-quality hardware capture and output solution that moves from SD to HD to 4K as you do.
