If you work with a wide variety of formats, frame rates and video/audio sources, Io Express provides the connectivity you need. With its small footprint it offers big features, like 10 or 8-bit uncompressed video, HDMI I/O, HD/SD-SDI I/O with 8 channels of embedded audio, analog component video (SD/HD) or composite output, 2-channel unbalanced audio output, and broadcast quality hardware-based down-conversion for flexible post production. The HDMI I/O is v1.3a at 30 bits per pixel, providing ideal support for the very latest 10-bit monitors.

Io Express integrates with other equipment and software easily, regardless of platform. The same Io Express unit can be used with PC or Mac, desktop or laptop - giving users the flexibilty to choose how they want to work in each scenario. A rear panel PCIe connector enables use with laptops via an ExpressCard, or with a Mac Pro or Windows workstation via a PCIe card.

Professional Connectivity

Many situations require the editing system to be locked in sync with other devices. Io Express can accept a reference signal, which ensures it is locked to any necessary devices for the best quality capture and output. This reference signal can then be passed on to other devices. Users can select whether timecode is read off embedded signals or from an external input so that the proper timecode is always associated with any captured clips.

Cross-platform flexibility

However you choose to work, PC or Mac, laptop or desktop, Io Express can integrate seamlessly with your workflow. The same Io Express unit can be used with PC or Mac, desktop or laptop - giving users the flexibilty to choose how they want to work in each scenario. A rear panel PCIe connector enables use with laptops via an ExpressCard, or with a Mac Pro or Windows workstation via a PCIe card. 

RS-422 Control

The RS-422 connection on Io Express enables control of external decks and other recording devices directly from within your software application of choice. Capture clips directly off tape and layoff sequences all frame-accurately without the need for a separate device control adapter.

Integrated AJA down-conversion

Featuring full 10-bit, broadcast-quality HD to SD hardware down-conversion and automatic HD/SD 12-bit component analog output, Io Express offers conversion flexibility all the time -- during ingest or playback.

Rackmount kit

The AJA Io Express and Io XT Rackmount Kit (part number IOX-RM), is the perfect custom companion product when you are looking to efficiently rack mount one or even two Io Express or Io XT products side by side in your rack for studio, mobile truck or video assist needs.
