AJA T-TAP overview

  • 1Description

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.

    AJA T-TAP reviews

    T-TAP is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says 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.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty Average I'm a professional editor and I was trying to build an editing system for my home on a budget. Instead of shelling out $ for a Mojo DX I bought this $ AJA product. It's certainly impressive for the price point, but unfortunately the T-Tap comes up short in many areas. While my system has plenty of speed and power, it all seems to rest on the agility (or lackthereof) of the T-tap. It's slow. Trimming, moving clips on my timeline, etc cause errors and delays. Disabling hardware instantly solves the problem. Various AJA drivers do not seem to help and while AJA customer service responds quickly, it seems the T-tap just doesn't have their attention- again, probably a result of the low price-point. In the end, if you need to really rely on the speed and compatability of your I/O then I would recommend looking at a higher quality product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great with Pro Tools 12! I am using the T-Tap with iMac running ElCapatain for Pro Tools 12 system (Apogee Ensemble Thunderbolt) to output sync video. Have tried a similar unit by another manufacturer which I do not recommend. The Aja software & driver integrates very well and have had no problems. The unit gets a little warm, so it's a good place to put a tiny muffin.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from T-Tap nearly perfect 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product. Does what it says. I needed to output a clean signal to my client monitor from my iMac Retina 5K. I looked at the T-TAP and the Black Magic Mini Monitor. My first inclination was to go with the Black Magic product, but in reading the reviews the T-TAP was consistently better. So even though it's substantially more expensive, I went with the T-TAP. So far it has performed exactly as expected. The signal is clean, I had no difficulties setting it up and I'm very happy. Would the Mini Monitor have worked just as well? Perhaps. But I can tell you that I'm completely satisfied with the T-TAP.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It puts your HD content on your monitors and nothing else. I had been using kona 3g's in the old mac pros, but realized we upgraded to new ones and really only needed to display HD some workstations. This works really well for just display out of Premiere and you don't have to worry about breakout boxes or any of the other bells and whistles of the kona 3g. It's a good solution if you don't need any inputs and is more reliable than the blackmagic solution so far.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it's supposed to 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.
