(Grass Valley, California--September 12, 2008) AJA Video, a leading manufacturer of professional video interface and conversion solutions, announced today that Autodesk has chosen to integrate AJA's video technologies into its Autodesk Lustre 2009 digital color grading system.
Autodesk has incorporated AJA video cards into its Autodesk Inferno, Autodesk Flint, Autodesk Flame, Autodesk Fire and Autodesk Smoke advanced systems products since 2006.
Lustre is Autodesk's premiere high-performance GPU-accelerated color grading solution tailor made for film and television professionals. AJA technologies are being integrated into the system to bring SD, HD, 2K and 1080p files into Lustre, and lay finished clips back off to tape.

"AJA's technologies are reliable, stable and provide the pristine video quality that our customers depend upon. As a result, we have now chosen to incorporate AJA I/O solutions into our Lustre color grading system as well."
"AJA has consistently strived to deliver products that exceed our customers' expectations for quality, reliability and support," said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video.
