IBC 2018 Exhibitor Spotlight | ClassX Integrates AJA KONA IP with New IP Broadcast Graphics Solution


ClassX announced that it has collaborated with AJA Video Systems to create a new IP graphics solution for live broadcast with AJA’s KONA IP desktop video and audio I/O card integrated. The intuitive solution allows users to produce and send high quality 2D and 3D graphics to air, with KONA IP providing optimized graphics and media output.

Designed to meet a range of graphics production needs, the system features ClassX’s proprietary graphics software, a custom PC, a KONA IP card, an NVIDIA graphics card and Intel chips. ClassX’s software facilitates smooth playout of limitless layers of pixel-perfect graphics and media to the KONA IP, and the company’s intuitive LiveBoard v6.2.1 engine minimizes CPU usage, even when playing out multi-layer, real-time data-driven graphics.

“AJA is at the forefront of broadcast and production innovation, and with the game-changing implications of SMPTE 2022/6/7, KONA IP offers our customers an awesome card for implementing these standards with uncompromised features and advanced speed,” said Michele Puccini, Co-founder and Head of Development, ClassX. “Working with KONA IP and AJA’s intuitive SDK, we’ve developed a flexible solution that will allow our customers to create and deliver smooth graphics over Broadcast IP.”

“IP is quickly gaining momentum, and our alignment with ClassX builds on our promise to continue supporting the broadcast industry in its transition to IP. ClassX’s new system with KONA IP offers a simple, powerful IP solution for broadcast graphics production, and it’s been a pleasure working with their team on the integration,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video.
