Product Highlights
  • Thunderbolt-Powered SDI and HDMI Output
  • 10-Bit SD / HD and 2K Output
  • 3D HDMI Monitoring Support
  • 24-Bit 8-Channel Embedded Audio
  • Thunderbolt / SDI / HDMI Connections

The AJA T-TAP captures 10-bit SD/HD/2K video and embedded audio from a Thunderbolt-enabled computer and outputs it in the same broadcast-quality to professional and consumer monitors and recording gear by SDI and HDMI.

Both outputs can be used simultaneously at all times. The HDMI out can be connected directly into 3D HDMI monitors for 3D stereoscopic monitoring. Both outputs also support full 24-bit 8-channel embedded audio, allowing for multi-channel playback such as 5.1 / 7.1 mixes.

T-TAP gets its power from the Thunderbolt connection to a computer and thus doesn't require any additional power at all, further supporting the portability of this device that conveniently fits into your hand.

            The AJA T-TAP is wonderful - it allows the new Mac Pro's to integrate into our production facility which is wired with HD-SDI. No issues, drivers from AJA work great.

              Comments about AJA T-TAP:

              Great to have a portable solution for getting a high quality video output signal. I wish the software had a "Blue Only" option to help with setting up my monitor. That seems like an obvious software feature, not sure why it's not there? Also wish there was an optional separate audio out because my monitor does not have speakers. With Avid, the audio is locked to the embedded video signal so there is no way to get audio to my mixer without an additional piece of hardware.

                    Did exactly what AJA said it would do and it installed quick!

                    Small and good looking too! The video I mean.

                    Definitely worth the money.

                      Using with Premiere and After Effects. Slight delay with audio so you will want to monitor audio through the T-Tap embedded audio which has no delay. I am using CS6. The delay may improve with CC.

                          I am using this with my 2012 27" iMac and FCPX. Works great. Tried other solutions but this is about as turnkey as it gets. It's a perfect, simple way to monitor your video.

                              This is a great little box.
                              I use it for program monitoring with FCP7 (Yes FCP7) on my macbook pro with thunderbolt. The docs I saw say only FCPX but that is wrong. Tom the tech support at AJA said it would work and sure nuff'.
                              I go thunderbolt out to the AJA then from AJA HDMI to a big LED TV. I am moving to Adobe Premiere and it works well with both and they don't fight over it. It runs very warm but I asked AJA and they said thats ok. I haven't had it long but so far it's a great product. Be sure to power up with it already hooked up.
                              On FCP7 go to view-External video-all frames. Then in Video Playback you will see your output choices from AJA.
