AJA Announces Support for Multiple Input HD and 4K Feeds to Telestream Wirecast

AJA Video Systems has announced the upcoming release of a new plug-in for KONA 3G that will support Telestream Wirecast 5 with up to four HD-SDI input channels and is also the first video card to support 4K/Ultra HD input to Wirecast. AJA developed the new plug-in using Wirecast’s SDK for partners to accommodate customer requests for boosted support for top quality live and on-demand streaming workflows.

About Wirecast

Wirecast from Telestream is a live video streaming production tool that allows Mac and Windows users to create live or on-demand broadcasts for the web. Wirecast works like a video switcher, controlling real-time switching between multiple live video cameras, while dynamically mixing in other source media, such as QuickTime movies, music, audio and slides to create professional broadcast productions for live or on-demand distribution on the web.

About KONA 3G

KONA 3G features 10-bit uncompressed video 3G/HD/SD SDI I/O, HDMI 1.4a output for stereographic monitoring to consumer 3D displays, 4K playout, 8-channel AES digital audio I/O (16-channel AES with optional K3G-Box) and 16-channel SDI embedded audio I/O, real-time hardware-based up/down/cross conversion to support a range of SD and HD, dual-link HD, even 2K formats, a hardware-based downstream keyer and more.
