AJA Video Systems has announced its support for Adobe’s Premiere Pro CC.
AJA’s new desktop software v13 brings new HDR support, which will enable HLG playout from Adobe Premiere Pro with AJA’s Kona 4 desktop I/O card or an AJA Io 4K Thunderbolt-enabled I/O device.
Additionally, the company’s next-generation Kona IP desktop card and new optional firmware, support uncompressed input from JPEG 2000 streams, and real-time encoding of JPEG 2000 streams from Adobe Premiere Pro.
“AJA has been a long-standing provider of reliable and flexible companion I/O hardware for our video solutions,” says Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for professional video at Adobe.
“We’re excited that AJA is introducing technology updates that will help our users make the transition to HDR and IP-based workflows.”
Adobe says new support for HLG affords its Premiere Pro editors using AJA’s Kona 4 or Io 4K hardware more flexibility when working with HDR material.
HLG is the latest HDR format that is gaining wide industry acceptance, the company adds. Now Kona 4 and Io 4K users can accurately monitor in HDR while using the powerful new workflow tools within Premiere Pro.
At the same time, the new JPEG 2000 firmware licence option for Kona IP enables real-time input and output from and to JPEG 2000, encoded within an MPEG-2 transport stream. Adobe Premiere Pro editors using Kona IP can now participate within IP-based JPEG 2000 workflows and connect around the globe with AIMS Broadcast IP interoperability compliance.
Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems, adds: “AJA has also been an early supporter of IP-based post and broadcast ecosystems, and we’re pleased to offer JPEG 2000 capture and playout from Premiere Pro with our KONA IP cards.”
