    U-TAP SDI - Overview

    Simple USB 3.0 Powered 3G-SDI Capture

    The AJA U-TAP-SDI USB 3.0 capture devices brings professional connectivity and high quality video capture to your laptop or workstation. U-TAP SDI is bus powered with the ability to simply and easily bring in video across 3G-SDI for use within a wide range of software without any drivers to install, as it's supported directly in macOS 11®, Windows® and Linux®.

    Pocket Power
    U-TAP SDI offers easy, cost effective and portable solutions for plug and play capture that is compatible with Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems and a broad range of creative applications. From video conferencing, streaming, social media, gaming and more, U-TAP SDI offers powerful functionality without requiring any third party driver software.

    U-TAP SDI is smaller than a smartphone, with USB connectivity that provides a quick and easy way to connect SDI sources for capture, without the need to install additional software drivers. Small enough to carry anywhere with you, its bus powered USB connectivity ensures you will never be looking for a power source.

    U-TAP SDI provides an SDI looping output, allowing you to loop through the source SDI signal to monitors, switchers and more. U-TAP SDI supports frame rates up to 1080p 60, for your HD High Frame Rate (HFR) projects.

    Rugged and Reliable
    U-TAP is small, rugged, reliable and backed by AJA's world renowned support. Small enough to fit in your pocket and with no power supply to carry, it can go with you anywhere.

    Silence defined with no fans or moving parts, U-TAP won't detract from the recording or streaming experience, but quietly enhance it with automatic video scaling and aspect ratio conformity based on your application's requirements, all the way up to 1080p 60.
