An interview from the 2015 National Association of Broadcasters Convention in Las Vegas with Andy Bellamy of AJA Video Systems. AJA Video is a manufacturer of digital video interface, conversion and desktop solutions, for the professional broadcast and post-production markets.
In this interview Andy talks with us about recent v1.2 Firmware update to the AJA CION camera, as well as support for Convergent Design & ATOMOS recorders.

Some of the firmware updates in v1.2 include....

- Improved white balance performance for over exposed image portions.
- Improved video levels with higher IRE values available for various EI, gamma and color correction combinations.
- Additional gamma and color correction options for higher EI 800 and EI 1000 values.
- New LUT Support - Internal video gamma LUT for external monitoring of the Expanded 1 or Disabled gamma selections when an external LUT device is not in use.
- Auto White Balance Alarm — Notifies users if an image does not contain a sufficient value of white or grey to perform an appropriate white balance and reverts to the unity setting.
- Time Lapse Function Indicator — Interval record (time lapse) indication for the superimposed monitoring overlay.
- Expanded RGB output — SMPTE or full RGB range values can now be selected for the main SDI outputs.
