Booth SL2505 AJA Video introduced its first standalone streaming product, HELO, an H.264 streaming and recording device, as well as KONA IP, a desktop video and audio I/O product for IPbased workflows.
HELO features 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs and outputs, 1080p capability and a Web-based UI. With dedicated record and stream buttons, HELO enables users to simultaneously stream video signals directly to Web CDNs while recording to an SD card, USB drive or network-based storage.
KONA IP represents the next generation of the KONA line of PCIe capture cards and works with AJA Control Room and Control Panel software, as well as with third-party content creation applications. Supporting SMPTE 2022-6 IP-encapsulated uncompressed 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SDSDI video, audio and VANC data, KONA IP will also support compressed codecs like J2K and advanced IP protocols in the future.
