The AJA T-TAP provides broadcast quality output and captures 10-bit SD/HD/2L video and embedded audio from a Thunderbolt-enabled computer via SDI and HDMI. Both of these outputs can be utiliised simultaneously, constantly.

The HDMI output can be directly linked to 3D HDMI monitors for 3D stereoscopic monitoring. Full 24-bit 8-channel embedded audio is supported by both outputs, making multi channel playback such as 5.1 / 7.1 mixes possible.

Smaller than your wallet, the AJA  T-TAP offers video professional an inexpensive, extremely compact device which does not concede processing power. Built from the same fundamentals as AJA’s Io XT Thunderbolt I/O, the T-TAP supplies 10-bit broadcast quality output (10-bit quality is far superior to DisplayPort adapters which can only support 8-bit).

An additional power supply is not required for the AJA T-TAP thanks to its Thunderbolt connection, adding to the portability of an already pocket-sized signal converter capable of holding its own in any professional studio.

Thunderbolt connectivity

Simple to setup and use, T-TAP connects to your Mac via the blazing-fast Thunderbolt connection which provides the bandwidth necessary for full broadcast-quality video and audio output. Because T-TAP is powered via the Thunderbolt connection, there's no need for an additional power supply, minimizing cabling and maximizing portability


The power of Io XT

Based on the same architecture as AJA's Io XT Thunderbolt I/O, T-TAP offers full 10-bit broadcast-quality output. 10-bit quality is far superior to DisplayPort adapters that only support 8-bit and are not true video output solutions for professional applications


Professional outputs

T-TAP features HD/SD SDI and HDMI outputs. The SDI output can be used to feed professional monitors or recording gear, while the HDMI output is able to feed directly into consumer HDMI monitors. Both HDMI and SDI are active at all times, so you can simultaneously work with professional and consumer gear


3D support

Need a compact solution for 3D monitoring? No problem. T-TAP can output directly from the HDMI output to 3D HDMI monitors for stereoscopic review, without the need for any additional hardware


Embedded audio

It may be compact, but T-TAP doesn't compromise on professional audio functionality. Full 8-channel embedded audio allows for multi-channel playback such as 5.1 - or even 7.1 mixes
