AJA products to support Apple Final Cut Pro 5

AJA Video has announced that all KONA and Io products will support Apple’s new Final Cut Pro 5 and Final Cut Studio.
The exciting new features will be functional when FCP 5 and Studio ship. Additionally, a new driver release for the Io product line will feature reduced latency and 23.98 frame rate support. AJA’s complete line of desktop video capture cards and devices were on display at NAB, next to the Apple booth.
The new Io, Io LA, and Io LD driver will feature reduced latency on the FireWire connection to the Mac as the result of a driver update from Apple. This major enhancement in the functionality of Io will significantly improve its responsiveness. Also, the Io product family’s new 23.98 frame rate support adds new capability for Io to support many 24p and film related projects.
The new version 1.1 KONA 2 driver has hardware-accelerated support for FCP 5’s HDV playback codec, offloading the CPU to allow more real time effects. KONA 2 and KONA LS will provide full support for Apple’s new Dynamic RT Extreme, 8 channels of discrete audio input, the new MultiCam playback of up to 16 sources, video-out support for Motion 2 and the new version of Shake, and video out of SoundTrack Pro. Io will also support MultiCam playback of up to 16 sources, video-out support for Motion 2, and the new version of Shake.
The new Kona 2 driver version 1.1 is available now for download at the support section of AJA’s website. The new Io family driver will be available in May.
