My company and I would like to upgrade our FCP Studio 2 system, from strictly working in DV NTSC, to working in SD and HD uncompressed. The Aja IO HD looks really good and we think it would be a great fit for our small shop.
I'm wondering if somone could give some advise on what we need to get up and running.
Here's a rundown on what we have and what we're thinking of perchasing.
Our current setup:
Dual 2.0 G5/2 Gigs of ram
Final Cut Pro Studio 2
We were thinking of perchasing a 42' Sharp LCD TV to use as a monitor. I noticed the IO HD has an HDMI output, would I be able to run the program out from FCP to this LCD T.V via HDMI? I was also wondering if anyone could recomend how to setup proper audio for an edit suite. We were thinking of perchasing a small audio board and buying some KRK RP5 speakers. Would we need a sound card for the audio or can it all run out of the IO Box? Storage is also an issue, we currently are using a Lacie 1TB external firwire 800 drive. Will this work with the IO or will be have to buy some SATA drives.
