Io delivers the highest quality 10-bit uncompressed video and multi-channel 24-bit audio, and does it all in a simple plug-and-play form factor. And connecting Io to your Mac is easy: just one simple FireWire cable. All Io outputs are available all the time-allowing simultaneous connections to tape decks and monitoring - analog or digital. Io also provides RS-422 machine control, audio word clock, and a professional video Genlock. Developed in close cooperation with Apple, Io was designed to take full advantage of Final Cut Pro's exciting and powerful features. Io-In. Out. Simple.

Brackets (rack ears) are provided for front mounting the two-rack-unit Io chassis in a standard 19" (48 cm) equipment rack. You can also mount the Io chassis via the same brackets attached at the rear panel for industrial-style equipment racks. Alternatively, you can use the chassis without any brackets at all; instead placing supplied rubber feet on the bottom of the chassis for use on a desk.

Chassis styling complements Apple's Xserve and Xserve RAID for a stylish desktop video suite appearance.

RS-422 Control Port (Sony), 9-pin D, for machine control
