Sarah Mason and Jake Essoe, Co-Hosts of the The Harold and Maudecast talk to AJA President, Nick Rashby about AJA’s continued synergy with current and future roadmaps for Content Creators.
“People are looking to integrate IP into their existing pipelines”.
Yes they are! And AJA has answers.
“With the introduction of KONA IP we have one of the very few and best of breeds missing links for IP,” stated Nick Rashby. “This takes editors and other content creators from the theoretical to practical allowing them to really work in an IP based infrastructure.”
Bottom Line: AJA had a great show. In the past year they introduced 30 new products (shipping) and at NAB 2016 they introduced 24 more on top of that (all shipping). The big news for them revolved around IP video, Streaming, H.264 recording and IP based capture devices. AJA seems well aligned with the current trends and roadmaps--particularly IP workflows. They question how VR will all fit into it from a practical use perspective but are always poised to deliver solutions that solve problems for end users, whatever those problems may be.
Other highlights from AJA:
U-TAP USB 3.0 Capture Devices
Helo Streaming and Recording Device with H.264 Support
New Mini-Converters and openGear Compatible Racks Cards
On the roadmap - 8K 60P!
