Product Information

AJA KONA 1-S Short 2.0 PCIe Card

Designed for broadcast, post and ProAV, as well as OEM developers, KONA 1 is a robust, cost efficient single-channel 3G-SDI 2K/HD 60p I/O card with serial control, reference/LTC and even HDR over SDI. KONA 1 features standard application plug-ins and supports capture, monitoring and/or playback with software applications from AJA, Adobe®, Avid®, Apple®, Telestream and more as well as AJA SDK support.

KONA 1 enables simultaneous monitoring during capture (pass-through) and includes: full size SDI ports supporting 3G-SDI formats, embedded 16-channel SDI audio in/out, Genlock with reference/ LTC input and RS-422.

Powerful and Simple 3G-SDI Capture and Playback for 2K/HD up to 60p

KONA 1 provides cost-effective and powerful professional 3G-SDI support for robust compatibility with Ingest, Editing and Visual Effects applications.

Capture, Monitor and Output frame accurately up to 2K 60p over 3G-SDI with Adobe, Avid, AJA Control Room and many more applications.

Reference and LTC spigots provide the professional frame stability and time code based reliability you need for broadcast, production, ProAV and creative finishing projects.

HDR

HDR or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colors to be communicated to your audience.

HDR workflows can also benefit from AJA's Control Room application and it's companion, AJA Control Panel, which comes complete with built-in HDR test patterns.

AJA Control Room also provides VPID signaling for SDR/HDR Transfer Characteristics, Colorimetry and Luminance transfer characteristics over SDI, bringing flexible output options to your AJA device.

AJA Control Room software also provides HDR Auto Playback Detection. Embedded HDR metadata in a recorded .mov file, is read and used to automatically set the HDR format on the monitor connected to the SDI output.

Support for file-based .mov HDR outputs with metadata from Adobe Premiere Pro/Adobe Media Encoder HDR files is also available. Screening those rendered outputs is a simple and hi-quality experience with AJA Control Room. Every frame is presented in its full-quality, at the timing intended, and with the proper HDR format set correctly and automatically.

Apple Mac Pro Compatible

AJA offers full compatibility for the new Apple Mac Pro, including support for AJA Control Room with Metal compatibility as well as extensive support for a range of applications. For productions handling high resolution workflows, KONA 1 is a perfect companion with the new desktop offering single-channel 3G-SDI capture and playback.
