Futureproof

With more affordable high-resolution cameras available, many productions are opting to shoot at a higher resolution even if final delivery is still in SD or HD. This offers the flexibility to re-master at higher resolutions in the future.

Io 4K can support your current SD and HD workflows and provides a path to move to higher resolution productions whenever the need arises. The realtime downconverter also means you can work at higher resolutions and easily create lower resolution deliverables without the need to recapture or re-edit. All at a size that’s small enough to easily take on-set or in the field.

Powerful

Thunderbolt 2 technology provides an incredible amount of bandwidth on a single Thunderbolt cable. Io 4K capitalizes on this increased capacity to allow up to 4K signals to be captured and output.

With dual Thunderbolt 2 ports, Io 4K can daisy chain additional devices together such as high-resolution displays and high-capacity storage for a complete, portable solution that’s powerful enough to meet the demands of professional production.

Compatiblity

Seamlessly integrate Io 4K with leading post-production and delivery tools such as Apple Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Creative Cloud, AJA Control Room, Telestream Wirecast 5 and more. Io 4K gives you the flexibility to use the software tools that are appropriate for your workflow while maintaining a consistent, high-quality hardware capture and output solution that moves from SD to HD to 4K as you do.
