The new Io XT Thunderbolt-enabled professional video I/O device is now shipping from AJA Video Systems (http://www.aja.com). The company says it’s the only Thunderbolt-enabled video I/O device on the market with dual Thunderbolt port.
Io XT connects to a Thunderbolt-enabled Mac via a single cable. An additional Thunderbolt port is provided, enabling users to daisy-chain Io XT to other Thunderbolt peripherals including high bandwidth storage and high resolution displays through a single interface; simplifying the connection of multiple devices.
The portable device supports capture and playback of 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 HD and SD formats and can unify disparate formats via its 10-bit realtime Up/Down/Cross conversion capability. Io XT also provides compatibility with the most popular NLE programs, the newest codecs, video formats, stereoscopic 3D workflows, and more. It has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$1,495.
