AJA introduces Io X3 Thunderbolt 3 capture and playout box with HDMI and 3G-SDI

[14:11 Sun,6.February 2022   by ]    

AJA Video Systems has introduced the compact Io X3, a professional video and audio I/O Thunderbolt 3 capture and playout box. It can be used to capture and also output video and audio (HDR/SDR) applications via 3G-SDI and HDMI on Thunderbolt 3-equipped Macs or PCs.

Io X3 is designed to be a mobile solution for single-, two- and multi-channel SDI workflows such as high-end color correction, audio mixing, on-set monitoring or playback, and remote editing and VFX, which enables 2K/HD/SD input/output, including in HDR, directly from a laptop or computer. Io X3 is also suitable for streaming workflows, as it has four independent inputs for workflows with OBS and wirecast, as well as simultaneous MultiView monitoring for each source.


Io X3 also has eight switchable analog audio ports that allow users to switch between eight incoming or outgoing channels, or split connectivity between four inputs and four outputs, in addition to a 3.5 analog audio port to connect headphones directly.

Up to 16 channels of audio are available on each SDI port, with 8 channels available via HDMI. Compact and rack-mountable, the Io X3 units can be placed side-by-side in a rack for studio, mobile truck or video assist needs, allowing users to benefit from up to eight channels of up to 2K/HD/SD I/O in a 1RU.
