AJA Video Systems has joined Panasonic’s KAIROS Alliance Partner program as a verified hardware partner for the new KAIROS IP live video production platform.

AJA is actively supporting streamlined IP Mini-Converter integration with KAIROS and collaborating with Panasonic to establish KAIROS as a new standard for live production, offering optimized performance and video quality for live workflows.

“As remote production continues gaining traction in 2020, IP solutions are critical for ensuring production crews are able to control equipment from any location and collaborate at safe distances. AJA’s partnership with Panasonic around KAIROS further improves IP workflows for live production, with our powerful fleet of IP Mini-Converters for bridging HDMI and SDI with IP fully integrated with KAIROS and Panasonic’s live switching platform,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems.

We are very happy to have a partnership with AJA," added Kageyuki (Kenny) Fuimoto, lead manager of KAIROS Alliance, Panasonic Corporation. "The IP Mini-Converters from AJA give customers very efficient I/O for our ST 2110 native system. Their high usability makes it ideal for live production or remote production with KAIROS.”
