Quality, Reliability, Innovation
Since 1993, AJA Video has been a leading manufacturer of high-quality and cost-effective digital video interface, conversion, acquisition and desktop solutions supporting the professional broadcast and post- production markets. With headquarters in Grass Valley, California, AJA maintains an extensive sales channel of dealers and systems integrators around the world.
KONA 3G is the professional’s choice for uncompressed SD, HD, Dual Link HD, 2K, 4K and 3G
KONA 3G features 10-bit Uncompressed video I/O, 4K capture and playout, the newest HDMI 1.4a support for 3D workflows, 16-channel SDI embedded audio I/O, and up to 16-channel AES digital audio I/O (8 with breakout cable or 16 with optional K3G- Box). Add to that realtime hardware-based up/down/cross conversion for efficiently working with a wide variety of SD and HD, 3G, dual-link HD, even 2K formats, a hardware downstream keyer for compositing graphics without rendering, and so much more.
KONA 3G offers you the most affordable and simplest path through 3D Stereoscopic workflows.
Through SDI, you can output Discrete Left and Right Eye feeds with a simple Stereo button choice in the AJA Control Panel. In addition, all the muxed feeds for SDI stereo monitoring are accessible through tight integration with CineForm’s stereo codecs in Apple FCP and Adobe Premiere Pro timelines for Side by Side and Top Bottom.
Through HDMI 1.4a, you can utilize more affordable 3D monitors for Side by Side and Top Bottom needs.
Hi5-3D HD-SDI Multiplexer To HDMI 1.4a and SDI Video and Audio Converter
The Hi5-3D is a 3D video multiplexer that combines two HD-SDI Inputs into various multiplexed 3D formats for output on HDMI 1.4a and HD-SDI. The HDMI 1.4a output supports EDID transactions that allow automatic 2D/3D configuration per the HDMI monitor’s capabilities. Input SDI 2 must be externally frame synchronized to input SDI 1 in 3D Modes. Embedded SDI input audio is embedded in both the HDMI and SDI outputs. 2 channel RCA audio output is also supported with user control of channel selection. The Hi5-3D supports AJA’s Mini-Config application for user configuration and firmware download.
The Hi5-3D supports, depending on the video format, “side-by-side”, “top-bottom”, and “frame- packing” 3D modes. The “side-by-side” and “top-bottom” modes involve compressing, either horizontally or vertically, each input for combining into a single video stream at the same rate of the inputs. The “frame-packing” mode stacks two full resolution inputs into a “tall” frame (at twice the clock and line rates). When selected, “frame- packing” can only be used with 23.98/24Hz input frame rates.
Each input, in addition to 3D processing, can be flipped either horizontally, vertically, or both. This control is provided by 4 switches that can be engaged in any combination.
