AJA Release New CION Firmware

News Image
AJA Video Systems has released v1.1 firmware for its CION 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD production camera. The company announced shipping just over one month ago, and the software update increases the Exposure Index (EI) values to EI 320, EI 500, EI 800 and EI 1000.

CION is capable of shooting at 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD resolutions and features in-camera recording directly to the Apple ProRes family of codecs, including 12-bit ProRes 444. This enables image quality capture to AJA Pak SSD media at up to 4K/60p, and offers compatibility with a wide range of post production applications. CION can also output AJA Raw at up to 4K 120fps via 4 x 3G-SDI or up to 4K 30fps via Thunderbolt.

"CION is a breakthrough camera system with many unmatched features at an incredible price point," says Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. "This new firmware update reflects our ongoing commitment to developing user-requested new features and improvements for CION."

The v1.1 firmware is field-upgradeable, and is easily uploaded to the CION camera via the built-in web UI with a standard web-browser. This new v1.1 firmware is recommended for all CION users.
