    What is the advantage of the AJA I/O device for capturing, when that can be done with firewire anyway?

    [Earle Del Rosario] “What is the advantage of the AJA I/O device for capturing, when that can be done with firewire anyway?”

    Without Io you’re limited to compressed formats only. DV, DV50, DVCPro HD, HDV.

    With the Io, you add connectivity to professional VTR’s like Beta and DigiBeta equipment

    With the Io you add 8 and 10bit uncompressed formats to your editing choices.

    With the Io you add the ability to convert uncompressed formats like BetaSP and DigiBeta to compressed formats like DV, DV50.

    It’s much more than a Firewire device. It’s a professional input/output device that adds many more features over just Firewire connectivity.
