AJA Video, a leading manufacturer of high-quality and cost-effective digital video interface, conversion, acquisition and desktop solutions supporting the professional broadcast and post-production markets, had several new products on display at the Touchvision stand at Mediatech Africa.
Among the products on display on the acquisition front were the Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini, which cover a growing list of workflow requests. On the editing front were Apple Final Cut Pro running on a KONA LH and for 3D stereographic workflow, the KONA 3G with the Adobe Production Premium Creative Suite impressed visitors to the stand. Also on display was Avid Media Composer running on Macbook Pro with the IO express card version.
An expanded range of mini converters including (fibre optic) FiDO converters, offer more connectivity options for a larger range of geographies and workflow needs. The Kumo compact SDI router was exhibited on the stand, controlled through a web browser, while the FS1, the most versatile and powerful frame sync and converter ever offered by AJA stood out in a league of its own.
Shipping now is the FS2, which has the fibre connectivity and Dolby audio encoding and decoding options. Included in this display was the Hi5-3D with new anaglyph support for simpler 3D workflows where necessary. Hi5-Fiber allows long cable runs for sports and facility HDMI monitoring .
“Bestsellers were the AJA Ki Pro Mini and Ki Pro,’ said AJA Video’s Kevin King. “All of our show stock was sold to high profile companies such as Aquavision, Burn TV, Ocean Sense and Red Pepper Productions for video assist on set. SuperSport purchased a number of converters for its studios.’
