AJA T-TAP Portable Video Output Description
AJA Video Systems brings you the T-TAP, providing video professionals with an inexpensive, extremely compact device that utilizes the power of Thunderbolt to deliver high-quality 10-bit SD, HD and 2K video and embedded audio output from any compatible Mac. Smaller than a deck of playing cards, T-TAP offers broadcast-quality performance you can fit in the palm of your hand. Thunderbolt connectivity – Simple to setup and use, T-TAP connects to your Mac via the blazing-fast Thunderbolt connection which provides the bandwidth necessary for full broadcast-quality video and audio output. Because T-TAP is powered via the Thunderbolt connection, there’s no need for an additional power supply, minimizing cabling and maximizing portability. The power of Io XT – Based on the same architecture as AJA’s Io XT Thunderbolt I/O, T-TAP offers full 10-bit broadcast-quality output. 10-bit quality is far superior to DisplayPort adapters that only support 8-bit and are not true video output solutions for professional applications. Professional outputs – Need a compact solution for 3D monitoring? No problem. T-TAP can output directly from the HDMI output to 3D HDMI monitors for stereoscopic review, without the need for any additional hardware. 3D support – ROI accepts 2-channel audio from the 3.5mm analog audio input or embedded 8-channel audio from an HDMI input. The audio source and routing can be selected in the MiniConfig software and is embedded in the SDI output. This allows computer audio to be embedded within the SDI signal for easy, synchronized routing. Embedded audio – It may be compact, but T-TAP doesn’t compromise on professional audio functionality. Full 8-channel embedded audio allows for multi-channel playback such as 5.1 – or even 7.1 mixes.
