    Hi Guys,

    I’m currently looking into upgrading my old MacPro system with the new MacPro.
    I also use a Blackmagic Decklink Extreme card in my old MacPro.

    I need a new hardware solution since the new MacPro only uses thunderbolt (and HDMI or USB 3) devices.

    I use the Blackmagic Decklink card by:

  • Sending a video/audio signal from the edit suite to the client viewing monitor via analog signal (analog cables are running under the carpet, will need to upgrade to HDMI eventually)
  • Receiving an audio signal from the Audio booth via XLR – the Audio booth is connected to a Sound Mixer which is then connected to the Audio-In of the Blackmagic card.
  • Can anyone suggest a hardware solution that will address my current situation?

    Kind regards,

    You may want to look at the AJA Io XT:

    The only item from your list that the Io XT does not natively offer is analog audio input. This could be accomplished via the use of a converter, such as the AJA HD10AMA, used in combination with the Io XT:

    Also, be aware that for analog audio output, a user-supplied DB-25 audio cable is needed.

    If you have additional questions, please feel free to contact the AJA Sales Department via phone or email, Monday through Friday, between 9am and 5pm PST.
