AJA announces KONA 5, Io 4K Plus, and T-TAP Pro Support for Hardware Out in Microsoft Teams

Integration makes it easy to incorporate remote, broadcast-quality audio and video streams into live production workflows

AJA Video Systems announced that it has collaborated with Microsoft to ensure that a range of its audio and video I/O solutions support the new Hardware Out feature in Microsoft Teams. Using the new feature with an AJA KONA 5, Io 4K Plus, or T-TAP Pro, live production and AV professionals can easily output SDI and HDMI high quality audio and video streams of on-the-ground reporters, interviewees, or events in remote locations and seamlessly weave the footage into live productions at broadcast-quality.

Microsoft Teams Hardware Out support for compatible AJA hardware is accessible within the Teams interface once enabled by an administrator. Users simply click on the permissions tab, turn on broadcast capabilities, then select “Hardware Out” for the connected AJA device to receive the video signal. A host of timing, resolutions, and frame rates are available to choose from, and once the settings are established, the user can then feed the signal out through the AJA device via SDI and HDMI to ensure a broadcast-quality signal that can be fed to routers, recorders, or other production equipment.

“The latest integration allows production professionals to transform nearly any webcam feed into a professional-grade audio and video signal to be brought into broadcast-grade productions,” shared AJA President Nick Rashby.

“Integrating high quality audio and video remote feeds into live productions can be challenging and costly, but with our new Teams Hardware Out feature and industry standard hardware like AJA’s I/O solutions, it’s quick, easy and cost efficient,” shared Aaron Linne, senior program manager, Microsoft Teams for Broadcasters at Microsoft Corp.
