News Image
AJA Video Systems has released v1.1 firmware for its CION 4K and 2K production camera.

The update follows the announcement of shipping just over one month ago and increases the Exposure Index (EI) values to EI 320, EI 500, EI 800 and EI 1000, as well as offering improved highlight handling capabilities.

CION shoots at 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD resolutions. In-camera recording directly to the Apple ProRes family of codecs, including 12-bit ProRes 444, enables image quality capture to AJA Pak SSD media at up to 4K/60p, and offers compatibility with a 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.

The v1.1 firmware is field-upgradeable, and is uploaded to the CION camera via the built-in web UI with a standard web-browser.

"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."

Pricing for CION is US MSRP $8,995. AJA Pak SSD media is available at a US MSRP of $695 (256GB) and $1,295 (512GB). AJA Pak Dock is available at a US MSRP of $395 along with a host of other AJA camera accessories.
