New unit supports Final Cut Pro 4 By Dave Nagel
AJA Video Systems today announced Io, an uncompressed audio and video FireWire capture device for Final Cut Pro 4. According to AJA, the device offers 8- and 10-bit capture for broadcast-quality production. It will be available in the second quarter with support for Apple's newly announced Final Cut Pro 4.

Io connects to a Macintosh G4 desktop or notebook through a FireWire interface. It supports component and composite analog video, SDI digital video, balanced analog audio, AES/EBU digital audio, optical audio, RS-422 machine control and genlock. ANd it was designed to complement Apple's Xserve and Xserve RAID in a rack or on a desktop.


Io is also the first device designed to take advantage of the new multi-channel audio architecture of Final Cut Pro 4 and was, according to AJA, developed in close cooperation with Apple to work with Final Cut Pro 4, which is expected to ship in June. (See our separate news articles on Apple's announcements.)
