Quick Overview

Multi-format analog and digital I/O. The most flexible card for analog and digital Standard and High Definition workflows.

Description

Details

Manufacturer Part Number: KONA LHI

If your post-production facility works with a wide variety of formats, frame rates and audio/video sources, the KONA LHi provides the connectivity you need, bridging the gap between analog devices and the latest 3G SDI and HDMI enabled products to provide editing, monitoring and mastering of professional quality video in an affordable, powerful, easy to use product.

Connecting to everything from an HDMI enabled camera to an HD-SDI VTR, KONA LHi offers a full host of no-compromise features, including 10-bit or 8-bit uncompressed video, 2-channel AES digital audio and 8-channel SDI embedded digital audio, analog composite or S-video or SD/HD component video I/O, 2-channel balanced analog audio I/O, and broadcast-quality hardware-based up/down/cross-conversionfor flexible SD and HD post production. KONA LHi supports a full HDMI workflow with 10-bit deep coloroutput for the best image quality possible. HDMI signals can also be converted to SDI for use in moreprofessional environments.

Like the KONA 3G, KONA LHi features full 10-bit, broadcast quality, motion-adaptive SD to HD upconversion, HD to HD cross-conversion, HD to SD down-conversion, and automatic HD/SD 12-bit component analog output. Since KONA LHis conversions are hardware-based, they are available allthe time - during ingest or playback. Outputs can be configured independently allowing you to have simultaneous HD and SD output - or two different types of HD: 720 or 1080 - output at the same time via cross-conversion.

In addition to a full set of video and audio I/O, KONA LHi can lock to external reference signals, accept timecode in and out and control a variety of tape decks via the industry standard RS422 9-pin connection.


FEATURES

The Flexibility to Unlock Workflows
KONA LHi provides a wide variety of formats, frame rates and audio/video sources for the connectivity you need. KONA LHi bridges the gap between analog devices and the latest 3G SDI and HDMI-enabled products to provide editing, monitoring and mastering of professional quality video in an affordable, powerful, easy to use product.


Versatile Connectivity
Connecting to everything from an HDMI-enabled camera to an HD-SDI VTR, KONA LHi offers a full host of no-compromise features, including 10-bit or 8-bit uncompressed video, 2-channel AES digital audio and 8-channel SDI embedded digital audio, analog composite or S-video or SD/HD component video I/O, and 2-channel balanced analog audio I/O. KONA LHi's HDMI 1.3a support allows you to feed a 'deep color' monitor with glorious 10-bit video, banishing video banding and preserving your gradients and rich color palette. Only KONA LHi delivers this 10-bit deep color HDMI support. HDMI signals can also be converted to SDI for use in more professional environments.


Integrated AJA Hardware Conversion
Like the KONA 3G, KONA LHi features full 10-bit, broadcast quality, motion-adaptive SD to HD up conversion, HD to HD cross conversion, HD to SD down-conversion, and automatic HD/SD 12-bit component analog output. Since KONA LHi's conversions are hardware-based, they are available all the time - during ingest or playback. Outputs can be configured independently allowing you to have simultaneous HD and SD output - or two different types of HD: 720 or 1080 - output at the same time via cross-conversion.

Extensive Software Support
KONA LHi is supported by an extensive list of professional software for editing, visual effects, graphics and more allowing the same KONA LHi card to be used by many different applications on the same system. In addition, AJA provides several free applications that enable you to utilize the power of the KONA LHi card even without having to run a particular software package. This allows you to create unique workflows without tying up valuable resources unnecessarily.

Extend Your Connectivity with KLHi-Box
The optional KHLi-Box breakout box let's you integrate KONA LHi easily into rack environments for quick access to all video and audio connections. Additional connectivity includes BNC digital AES/EBU connectors and RCA audio monitoring jacks.
