This Avid Media Composer 6 with AJA Io Express Desktop I/O Interface Kit from B&H is a hardware/software ingest, editing & playback solution for professional video production. AJA Io express has worked with Media Composer even before version 6 opened up the NLE software to a wide variety of third-party I/O hardware options, so it's an excellent choice for working with professional video formats on Mac & PC desktop systems.
Avid Media Composer 6 features a 64-bit architecture that allows it to address more system RAM, and the compact Io Express captures the high-quality production formats that are suddenly easier to work with. The I/O interface also supports Media Composer by executing 12-bit digital-to-analog conversion, hardware-based down conversion, and by providing time code I/O and RS-422 machine control.
The Io Express PCI-e device has an HD/SD-SDI input & output and an HDMI 1.3a input & output to support playback on affordable, high-quality HDMI monitors and capture from & mastering to any of today's HD camcorders, HD-SDI-enabled VTRs, and solid-state/HDD data recorders & decks. AJA Io Express plays back Media Composer sequences at the highest quality levels to your HD-SDI monitor
