Other features added in version 6.5 include closed caption support for FCP 7, MacCaption, VTR Xchange and AJA TV, VANC data capture and playback support for ProRes formats and expanded KONA LHi support.

The new software requires Final Cut Pro 7 and Mac OS X 10.5 or higher to fully utilize the new features. The software is a free upgrade to owners of the video cards in the KONA line.
