Integrate performance-proven hardware with four full-size BNC connections into your preexisting professional system with the AJA Corvid 44 BNC Flexible Multi-Format I/O Card with Fan version 2 with a short bracket and cables for high-resolution TV productions and sports broadcast applications. Each of the four 3G-SDI connections can be independently programmed as an input or output, can support different video formats, and can be linked together to support dual-link or formats up to UHD 4K.

High frame rate workflows ensure smooth motion and are supported at DCI 4K and UHD 4K. These same benefits extend to 720p and 1080p resolutions, making the Corvid 44 BNC adaptable to both your current and future setup. Lock the system to external signals connected with the BNC sync input—switchable between LTC and video reference—and the LTC input in the internal header. A built-in RS-422 connection allows for control of external devices while ensuring frame-accurate ingesting and layoffs.
