AJA Video Systems announced support for the latest releases of Avid® Media Composer® 6.0, NewsCutter® 10.0 and Symphony®6.0 with all of AJAs newest desktop solutions and mobile I/O devices.  

The current family of KONA cards, KONA 3G, KONA 3, KONA LHi and KONA LHe Plus, will all support Avid Media Composer 6.0, NewsCutter 10.0 and Symphony 6.0 with the addition of Avid Open I/O enabling support for third-party audio and video interfaces.

With KONA 3G, Avid editors can have access to very cost-effective, high quality video I/O.

We also have an array of products from AJA for Avid editors that deliver industry proven quality and reliability. 

We want to continue to provide editors working on any Avid product with the ultimate in workflow flexibility, and Avid Open I/O represents a significant effort on behalf of our development team to make that possible, said Angus Mackay, segment marketing manager at Avid.  AJA is known for delivering reliable, cost-effective and best of breed video I/O products. Ever since AJA announced support for Media Composer with its Io Express, editors have been very eager to get KONA support so were very excited with this latest development. 

In addition to the AJA KONA and Io family of products, the company is also working jointly with Avid to build support for the Avid DNxHD® video codec into Ki Pro Mini, enabling further production efficiencies to Avid Media Composer. AJAs Ki Pro Mini is a portable video recorder, facilitating direct camera-to-edit workflows that enable the digital acquisition of the highest quality and most-popular post-friendly codecs.
