KONA® 3G has the unparalleled features that top-of-the-line video pros expect from AJA Desktop solutions. From SD to HD, 2K and 4K in 10-bit uncompressed clarity along with broadcast-quality up/down/cross conversion plus 3D capability, the KONA 3G has the power for the work you do today and into the future.

It offers users a single, powerful card with support for 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 color spaces to provide the highest quality for your images. The futureproof architecture means you can easily work with HD and 2K now and switch to working at 4K resolution when the need arises without the requirement for new hardware.
KONA 3G supports Dual Link 4:4:4 HD-SDI, with full-bandwidth 4:4:4 RGB at 10-bits for 1080i, 1080p, 1080PsF and 720p formats. It can also convert between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 formats for single link HD-SDI monitoring and output.

For SDI video, KONA 3G features two 3G/HD/SD inputs and two outputs. HDMI 1.4a monitoring output, LTC I/O, Genlock input and configurable 3 x BNC D/HD analog video output. Switch KONA 3G into 4K mode and all four BNC connections can be used for 4K capture or output.

KONA 3G’s extensive 4K support allows output directly from editing systems to 4K projectors or monitors, allowing editors and clients to view full resolution 4K images as they work. This output capability enables a powerful 4K workflow that is also affordable and manageable.

The built-in up/down/cross converter brings any video to a unified resolution, simplifying workflows and eliminating the need to adjust resolution within software. KONA 3G also includes a powerful hardware downstream keyer that can place graphic files with an alpha channel, selectable color matte or the contents of the card’s frame buffer over the video being input to the card.

AJA KONA 3G Features:

  • From SD to 4K in a Single Card - Leading the way for quality 4K capture, monitoring and output, KONA 3G offers 4K in both YCbCr and RGB. When 4K mode is selected, the four SDI connectors are remapped as I/O for handling the four quadrants of a 4K picture, providing support for most standard 4K formats.
  • Integrated AJA Hardware Conversion - KONA 3G features full 10-bit, broadcast-quality, motion-adaptive SD to HD up conversion, HD to HD cross conversion, HD to SD down conversion, and automatic SD/HD 12-bit component analog output. Since all conversion functionality on this device is hardware-based, it’s available on ingest or playback. Uniquely, the KONA 3G can cross convert 720p 23.98 to 1080PsF 23.98. Cross conversion is particularly valuable in today’s multiformat HD post environment where producing pristine 720p or 1080i signals at-will helps streamline dailies and deliverables.
  • Extend Your Connectivity - The optional K3G-Box breakout box and cables all sold separately) allow KONA 3G to integrate easily into rack environments, enabling quick access to all video and audio connections without having to get at the back of the tower computer. Additional K3G-Box functionality over the standard breakout cable comes in the form of 8 additional AES audio channels, 2-channel RCA analog audio monitoring jacks, and looping BNC Genlock reference connectors.
  • 3D Ready and Able - KONA 3G enables simple and affordable 3D workflows using the standard hardware, with no additional equipment required.
    • 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 3rd-party application timelines for stereo monitoring.
    • Through HDMI 1.4a, you can utilize more affordable 3D monitors for side-by-side and Top Bottom needs.
  • Internal SD/HD Hardware Downstream Keyer - KONA 3G features a powerful hardware downstream keyer that can place graphic files with an alpha channel over the video being input to the board-or a selectable color matte - or the contents of the card's framebuffer. The downstream keyer can also key a QuickTime video clip that has an alpha channel by playing it in real time, via the supplied AJA TV application, over live video coming into the card.
  • Extensive Software Support - AJA hardware is supported by an extensive list of professional software for editing, visual effects, graphics and more allowing the same AJA device to be used by many different applications on the same system. In addition, AJA provides several free applications that enable you to utilize the power of your AJA hardware even without having to run a particular software package. This allows you to create unique workflows without tying up valuable resources unnecessarily. Consult your Full Compass Sales Professional for more information on compatibility.
