AJA Video Systems Collaborates With Microsoft

News Image
AJA Video Systems has collaborated with Microsoft to ensure that a range of its audio and video I/O solutions support the new Hardware Out feature in Microsoft Teams.

Using the new feature with an AJA KONA 5, Io 4K Plus, or T-TAP Pro, live production and AV professionals can easily output SDI and HDMI high quality audio and video streams of on-the-ground reporters, interviewees, or events in remote locations and seamlessly weave the footage into live productions at broadcast-quality.

Microsoft Teams Hardware Out support for compatible AJA hardware is accessible within the Teams interface once enabled by an administrator. Users simply click on the permissions tab, turn on broadcast capabilities, then select 'Hardware Out' for the connected AJA device to receive the video signal. A host of timing, resolutions, and frame rates are available to choose from, and once the settings are established, the user can then feed the signal out through the AJA device via SDI and HDMI to ensure a broadcast-quality signal that can be fed to routers, recorders, or other production equipment.

"As production ramps back up, it's clear that distributed workflows are here to stay, and AJA is committed to making them as simple and accessible as possible for production professionals. Collaborating with Microsoft to ensure that our most popular I/O tools support this new Teams Hardware Out feature is an exciting extension of this," shared AJA President Nick Rashby. "The latest integration allows production professionals to transform nearly any webcam feed into a professional-grade audio and video signal to be brought into broadcast-grade productions."

"Integrating high quality audio and video remote feeds into live productions can be challenging and costly, but with our new Teams Hardware Out feature and industry standard hardware like AJA's I/O solutions, it's quick, easy and cost efficient," shared Aaron Linne, senior program manager, Microsoft Teams for Broadcasters at Microsoft Corp. "Quality and reliability are paramount in the field, so we worked closely with AJA to ensure Teams Hardware Out natively supports professional tools like KONA 5, Io 4K Plus and T-TAP Pro."
