AJA Video Systems Releases KONA HDMI, KONA 1, Io IP

Wed, 18 Jul 2018 17:22:54 -0400

AJA Video Systems today released the KONA HDMI multi-channel HD/single-channel UltraHD HDMI capture card, KONA 1 3G-SDI capture/playback card, and the Io IP Thunderbolt-3 equipped video and audio I/O device. Simultaneously, AJA delivered Desktop Software v14.2, which introduces support for KONA HDMI and KONA 1; 10GigE support for 2K/HD video and audio over IP with Io IP; a “Deep Buffer” capture setting in AJA Control Panel; and new KONA, Io, and T-TAP improvements.
 
KONA HDMI is a flexible HDMI video capture card that supports live streaming, broadcast, production, post, vlogging, video game capture/streaming, VR, projection mapping, HDR capture/pass-through, and more. It enables four simultaneous channels of 2K/HD capture with streaming and switching applications including Telestream Wirecast and vMix, or one channel of 4K/UltraHD up to 60p over HDMI 2.0 using AJA Control Room software for file compatibility with most NLE and effects packages, and other third-party applications. Featuring AJA SDK and Video for Linux support, KONA HDMI can also be used by developers to build multi-channel HDMI ingest, switching, monitoring and communication solutions.
 
KONA 1 simplifies capture/playback over 3G-SDI in broadcast, post, and ProAV. The robust single-channel 3G-SDI 2K/HD 60p I/O PCIe card features standard application plug-ins and supports capture, monitoring and/or playback with industry-standard applications from AJA, Adobe, Apple, Avid, Telestream, and more, in addition to the AJA SDK for developers. KONA 1 supports simultaneous monitoring during capture (pass-through), RS422 control, dedicated Ref/LTC and a host of other features.
 
The Thunderbolt 3-equipped Io IP provides reliable ingest/output from/to IP networks for 2K/HD/SD video/audio workflows. Local monitoring is supported by 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 (including HDR) and analog audio. Compatible with macOS and Windows, Io IP works with production, post, mastering and streaming tools from Apple, Adobe, Avid, Autodesk, Telestream, and others. Dual Thunderbolt 3 ports enable daisy chaining, and two SFP+ cages allow video and audio routing over 10 GigE IP networks. The rugged device supports SMPTE 2022-6 uncompressed video, audio and VANC data over IP, as well as SMPTE 2022-7 for redundancy protection.
 
Desktop Software v14.2 includes support for KONA HDMI and KONA 1; 10GigE support for 2K/HD video and audio over IP (uncompressed SMPTE 2022-6/7) with the new Thunderbolt 3-equipped Io IP; a “Deep Buffer” setting in AJA Control Panel for improved handling of storage interruptions during ingest; and other enhancements for KONA, Io and T-TAP products. Io 4K Plus, DNxIV and Io IP users benefit from a new feature allowing all eight analog audio channels to be configured for either input, output for full 7.1 ingest/monitoring, or a 4-In/4-Out mode or I/O for stereo plus VO and discrete tracks.

KONA HDMI, KONA 1 and Io IP are available right now at Markertek!

Call for Presentations Now Open for IP Showcase at IBC2018

Mon, 16 Jul 2018 16:53:16 -0400

Industry partners, the Audio Engineering Society (AES), the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS), the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA), European Broadcasting Union (EBU), the Society of Motion Picture and Technology Engineers® (SMPTE®), and the Video Services Forum (VSF) — all co-sponsors of the IP Showcase — today announced a call for presentations for the event. The IP Showcase is an education and demonstration pavilion at IBC2018 that will highlight the benefits of and momentum behind the move to standards-based IP for real-time professional media applications. The submission deadline for speaking proposals is July 20.
 
The focal point of the IBC2018 IP Showcase will be the presentation stage at the IP Showcase Theatre, which is visited by hundreds of IBC attendees each day, often with standing-room-only crowds. Presentations provide an unmatched opportunity for companies to offer their unique viewpoint on IP video and audio for production, the evolving SMPTE ST 2110 and AES67 standards, and the AMWA NMOS technology stack. End users, industry associations, solutions providers, and technology developers are all invited to share their knowledge and perspectives on how the fundamental change to IP signal transport will impact the broadcast industry today and in the future — especially related to SMPTE ST 2110-10/20/21/30/31/40 and AMWA IS-04/IS-05.
 
Speaking times are limited during the five-day exhibition, and companies are encouraged to act quickly and submit proposals early. The selection committee is looking for the following types of presentations:
 
- Tutorial (basic, intermediate, advanced).
 
- Case study.
 
- Panel discussion.
 
- Market/business case analysis.
 
- Point-of-view/advocacy.
 
- Standards progress/update.
 
Preference will be given to presentations related to the following technology areas on the Joint Task Force on Networked Media (JT-NM) Roadmap:
 
- AES67.
 
- SMPTE ST 2110 suite of standards for Professional Media Over Managed IP Networks.
 
- AMWA NMOS specifications such as IS-04 and IS-05.
 
- Timing and synchronization using SMPTE ST 2059-1/2.
 
Broadcasters and end-users are particularly encouraged to present their insight and experience related to deployments of the technology areas above. Systems integrators, service providers, and manufacturers are also encouraged to apply. Product marketing presentations are discouraged, as the theatre is an opportunity to discuss advances in working with media using open IP-based technologies.
 
Other topics and technology areas will be considered. More details and the submission form are available at http://www.ipshowcase.org/call-for-presentations/.
 
The IP Showcase will take place in rooms E106 and E107 at RAI Amsterdam during IBC2018, Sept. 14-18.
