AJA Video Systems is a leading manufacturer of high-quality and cost-effective digital video acquisition, interface, conversion and desktop solutions for professional broadcast, production and post-production. AJA simplifies professional digital video workflows with a line of award-winning products designed and manufactured in Grass Valley, California.
AJA was founded by engineer John Abt in 1993. Today the company employs over 200 people worldwide, building industry-leading video capture cards, digital recording devices, video routers, frame synchronizers and scalers, digital converters and professional 4K cameras.
After great success initially with an industry-leading line of Mini-Converters, AJA expanded into the burgeoning desktop video market in 2000. The company’s inaugural line of KONA video capture and playback cards quickly established AJA’s reputation for delivering the highest-quality desktop video products. In addition to the KONA family of video I/O cards for the Mac and Windows PCs, AJA’s growing product line also extended to include the innovative “Io” Thunderbolt desktop video products and trend-setting Ki Pro family of portable and rack-mountable file-based recorders.
