AJA’s hardware products and developer tools are used across industries including, but not limited to; AV, Aviation, Broadcast, Corporate Communications, Medical, Law Enforcement, Military, Production and Post, REMI, Sciences, Security, Surveillance and Streaming. Anywhere high quality video products are required to operate flawlessly for multiple years in constant use, that’s where you’ll find AJA - at the heart of dependable and reliable systems and products.
AJA's Developer Ecosystem is designed to help partners and developers incorporate AJA I/O products into their systems and solutions. By utilizing existing, proven, robust professional video hardware technology, partners and developers are able to leverage AJA's legendary quality and expertise to save money, achieve exceptional results and rapidly bring new integrated products or software compatibilities to market.
Developers who wish to use AJA’s world-class SDK can choose between two different methods to gain access and start putting their creativity to work with this rich, deep and powerful set of video technologies.
For the quickest and easiest way to get up and running with the core AJA SDK, we recommend the AJA Open-Source Developer path which is under the MIT license and hosted via GitLab.
For access to the AJA SDK including AJA proprietary technologies, and world-class support, we recommend the AJA Developer Program path. This is accessed via the dedicated AJA SDK Support Site.
Enrolling in the AJA Developer Program is via signed agreement and requires that the developer not publish proprietary AJA technology via GitHub.
It is entirely possible for a developer to begin on the AJA Open-Source Developer path, and if necessary in the future, apply to enroll in the AJA Developer Program path.
Access the core SDK quickly and easily via GitHub
No forms to fill-out or agreements to sign
Access core online documentation library via GitHub

Other benefits include:
Having successfully completed the application process, you will receive the necessary logins to access the entire SDK via AJA SDK Support.
AJA SDK v16.1 and Desktop Software v16.1 onwards are optimized for the new Apple M1 chip with native support for AJA macOS drivers, application plug-ins, AJA Control Room, AJA Control Panel, AJA System Test and AJA NMOS software.
AJA's Developer SDK support site is the go-to location for all registered Developer Program partners to get SDK news, download critical files and ask questions about device configuration, problem solving and general technical support.
DirectShow filters are designed for DirectShow application developers, so that they may make their applications compatible with the majority of AJA's Windows based hardware. These filters are meant to be used programmatically, and will not necessarily work with every DirectShow application without work being done to explicitly support them.
