AJA and Touchvision together with their recommended resellers will be launching
the AJA Cion Camera in South Africa next month. Cion is both ergonomic and
lightweight with unparalleled connectivity, and is capable of shooting at 4K/UltraHD
and 2K/HD resolutions direct to Apple ProRes or AJA Raw.
AJA pioneered professional ProRes support with the Io HD, the first non-Apple
device to encode ProRes, introduced in 2007, and then the Ki Pro recorder,
introduced in 2009. Cion builds on these achievements by offering in-camera
recording directly to proven AJA Pak SSD media in the Apple ProRes family of
codecs – including 12-bit ProRes 444 – for pristine image capture at up to 4K/60p.
Cion also outputs AJA Raw at up to 4K/120p, with support already announced by
industry leading companies such as Adobe and Colorfront.
Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems said, “The image quality, functionality,
and reliability of this camera is absolutely incredible. We are thrilled to finally start
accepting orders from our Cion resellers, and our supportive customers will see that
this camera was worth the wait. Our engineering team has been working tirelessly
to push the colour science on this camera, and the picture is simply breath-taking.’
