AJA Video Systems KONA 4, Corvid 44 Supports Unreal Engine 4.20 From Epic Games
AJA Video Systems’ KONA 4 and Corvid 44 are the first video cards with built-in support for Unreal Engine. Epic Games released Unreal Engine 4.20, which includes a plug-in based on the AJA SDK supporting HD/SDI video and audio input and output to the AJA Corvid 44 and KONA 4 I/O cards. This includes full support for LTC, VITC timecode, and fully gen-lockable video enabling integration of AR and graphics in live broadcast transmissions.
“There is a rising tide of momentum for Unreal Engine in broadcast across virtual sets for live broadcast, virtual production, and eSports. Unreal Engine together with our KONA 4 or Corvid 44 cards deliver an incredibly low cost, low-latency solution for augmented reality applications for live broadcast,” says Bill Bowen, CTO, AJA Video Systems.
“There has been a growing demand from our customers working in live broadcast for video support in engine. We’re excited to offer support for AJA’s KONA 4 and Corvid 44 cards as a first step in that direction with this latest engine release,” says Kim Libreri, CTO, Epic Games.
