The AJA Io 4K Plus Professional Video I/O for Thunderbolt 3 is a full set of professional video and audio supports 4K, UltraHD, High Frame Rates (HFR), High Dynamic Range (HDR), and deep color workflows. Io 4K Plus supports 4K, UltraHD, 12G/6G/3G/1.5G-SDI, Dual Link, HD-SDI, and SD-SDI as well as UltraHD and HD over HDMI 2.0 for both capture and output. 

12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 bring both power and simplicity to your projects, with the ability to use single cables for both input and output for the most demanding workflows. 12G-SDI is backward compatible with SDI sources, covering all your bases through a single port. HDMI 2.0 allows high raster and frame rate capture and the ability to display the same to affordable and beautiful HDMI 2.0 displays.

Thunderbolt 3 doubles the speed of the previous Thunderbolt 2 standard with up to 40 Gps of throughput and utilizes the universal USB-C connection standard for true simplicity over a single cable and port for today's leading Mac and PC workstations and laptops, ideal for Video and Audio I/O as provided by the Io 4K Plus.

Monitor 4K/UltraHD in HD
When working at 4K resolutions, Io 4K Plus 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.

HDR Functions
HDR or High Dynamic Range provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true-to-life colors to be communicated to your audience.

Io 4K Plus provides this support for your 4K/UltraHD/2K and HD HDR pipelines to HDMI compatible displays in software v14 with HLG and HDR 10 support with HDR Infoframe metadata, in accordance with HDMI 2.0a/CTA-861.3 and HD

Integrated Digital Audio
Embedded 16-Channel SDI and 8-Channel HDMI audio are supported as well as analog audio inputs, outputs or both via a standard DB-25 connection. Stereo monitoring is also possible with a front panel mini-TRS headphone jack.

With desktop software v14 analog audio can be configured for flexibility when needing to record voice-overs and more with the ability to choose how the DB-25 connection on Io 4K Plus is configured: 8-Channel, 24 and 16-bit D/A analog audio, 48 kHz sample rate, balanced, using industry-standard 8x XLR on DB-25 breakout cable (cable not included) Up to 4 channels can be used for input and output each.

Extensive Software Support
AJA hardware is supported by an extensive list of professional software for editing, visual effects, graphics, and more allowing the same AJA device to be used by many different applications on the same system. In addition, AJA provides several free applications that enable you to utilize the power of your AJA hardware even without having to run a particular software package. This allows you to create unique workflows without tying up valuable resources unnecessarily.
