About Io HD
The Io HD provides a simple and elegant plug-in solution for working with Final Cut Pro on a Mac system. Co-developed with Apple, Io HD works with Final Cut Pro to provide a seamless non-linear editing experience, with all the features of proprietary systems—but without the expense and hassle. Along with unparalleled video and audio connectivity, Io HD includes a similar feature set to AJA's industry-leading KONA lineup; 10-bit hardware-based up-conversion, cross-conversion, and down-conversion, all performed in real time. Io HD brings HD editing to the MacBook Pro and Mac Pro utilizing Apple’s ProRes 422 technology, while also supporting SD editing workflows.
