IgniterX Lite Certified for Pro Tools on Mac OS X

Capture board offers offline 50:1 compression By Dave Nagel
Aurora Video Systems today announced that its IgniterX Lite has received certification for use with Digidesign Pro Tools 6.0.1 on Mac OS X. IgniterX Lite is a capture board for the Mac that offers a high offline compression ratio for saving disk space while synchronizing audio to video. It's available now for Mac OW X.

IgniterX is built around the QuickTime architecture to provide integration with applications like Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe After Effects and Pro Tools. For use in a digital audio workstation environment, it's designed to provide high compression ratios for saving disk space while allowing editors to synchronize audio to video. It offers standard unbalanced RCA audio I/O (16-bit/44.1 kHz to 48 kHz stereo), as well as composite and S-video I/O. It supports CCIR 601 resolution with variable MJPEG-A compression with compression ratios that can range from 1.5:1 to 50:1. Like other models in the IgniterX family, the IgniterX Lite can also be upgraded to component and SDI I/O as well.

IgniterX Lite is available now for Mac OS X for $999. For more information, visit
