PVC at NAB 2014 - Talking CION workflow with AJA

As well as discussing some of their other NAB products

By Scott Simmons | April 13, 2014

AJA CION

Yes some monitors can support a LUT so you wouldn’t need the device in those situations but there are many places where the LUT-box will be a great addition. Plus it’s the only box of this type designed for such a specific task.
