AJA intros uncompressed HD capture card
With a single KONA LH card and Final Cut Pro 5, users can bring in and layback material to HDCAM, DVCPROHD, HDV, BetacamSP, Digital Betacam and VHS.
AJA Video has released its next-generation video capture card, the KONA LH. Combining many of the features of AJA’s popular KONA-2 card, but at a lower price, KONA LH supports native 10-bit uncompressed signal processing and is ideally suited to those using Apple’s G5 workstation with Final Cut Pro editing software.
The KONA LH PCI card is available for OSX and FCP, offering HD and SD analog and digital I/O. Now, with a single card and Final Cut Pro 5, users can bring in and layback material to HDCAM, DVCPROHD, HDV, BetacamSP, Digital Betacam, and even VHS.
The KONA LH supports various HD codecs, including DVCProHD, HDV playback, and DV50, and includes hardware acceleration on-board for the playback of Apple's Dynamic RT Extreme. Acceleration frees up the G5 to do more.
