FOX Sports Net New England turns to AJA for Boston Celtics SD/HD solution

January 19, 2005


AJA's KONA 2 card's Io LA provides a connection for on-the-road postproduction support for Celtics away game broadcasts.

FOX Sports Net New England (FSN New England) has installed AJA KONA 2 capture cards and Io firewire interfaces as integral parts of three nonlinear editing systems supporting SD and HD telecasts of the Boston Celtics' 2004-2005 season.

Away games are broadcast in SD on FSN New England while home games are simulcast in SD and HD on a separate Comcast digital cable channel. All home games are produced in HD and downconverted for the SD distribution.

The KONA 2 card is the enabling piece of hardware that allows FSN New England to create content in HD and SD - a key capability because the network still edits 80 percent in SD and 20 percent in HD. The Io LA provides a connection for on-the-road postproduction support for Celtics away game broadcasts.
