AJA Video Systems has announced availability of Io 4K, an evolution of its popular devices for professional video I/O, updated and customized for Thunderbolt™ 2 technology and the latest 4K workflows.
Io 4K connects to any Thunderbolt™ 2-enabled device such as the new Mac Pro, and uniquely offers an additional Thunderbolt™ 2 port for daisy-chaining other peripherals in supported workflows.
