KONA 3, 2K video support

AJA Video today released KONA 3 v2, featuring 2K resolution video support for the recently released KONA 3 uncompressed HD/SD PCI Express capture card. KONA 3 v2 supports hardware-based 1080-to-720 or 720-to-1080 cross conversion, streamlining dailies and deliverables creation at true broadcast picture quality in real-time. 2K telecine to KONA 3 saves time and steps in the process by directly and simultaneously creating 2K DPX files and 2K QuickTime reference movies. Material can be played out at 2K via HSDL (High Speed Data Link), offering further synergy with other 2K products. Additionally, KONA 3 v2 allows 2K files to be viewed on HD 1080 24P-supported video monitors, which can be down-converted to SD in real time, giving the 2K DI pipeline a solution for multi-format video playout of 2K material. By generating 2K DPX files during the digitize phase, different parts of the process -- such as delivery of full-resolution media for shots intended for visual effects -- can be done much earlier. Further new features of KONA 3 v2 are 16-channel embedded audio, and 96KHz AES audio. 16-channel embedded digital audio allows for full support of all audio channels on HD tape formats, such as HDCAM SR. KONA 3 is available for $3,000, and all existing owners of KONA 3 can download the v2 update for free.
