Description

Ready for today’s workflows and those of the future, KONA 3G gives video professionals unrivalled features and the highest standards in quality and performance.

KONA 3G is a video and audio desktop I/O card that provides video professionals with unparalleled features for handling everything from SD to HD, 2K and 4K with full 10-bit uncompressed clarity. With a broadcast quality up/down/cross converter and the ability to work in 3D, KONA 3G has the power for the work you do today and into the future.

KONA 3G 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. Stereoscopic 3D support allows you to work with dual, full resolution SDI left/right eye signals and also output muxed HDMI for consumer 3D monitors.

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. KONA 3G can also convert between 4:4:4 and 4:2:2 formats for single link HD-SDI monitoring and output.

For SDI video, the card features two 3G/HD/SD-SDI inputs and two outputs - or for 4K all four SDI connectors can be used for capture and output - HDMI 1.4a monitoring output, LTC input and output, one connection for Genlock input, and configurable 3x BNC HD/SD analog video output.

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 over the video being input to the board - or a selectable color matte, or the contents of the card’s framebuffer.

Up-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen

  • Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
  • Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen
  • Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change

Down-Conversion

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • Anamorphic: full-screen
  • Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
  • Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size

  • Hardware 10-bit
  • 1080i to 720P
  • 720P to 1080i
  • 720P to 1080PsF

SD to SD Aspect Ratio Conversion

  • Letterbox: This transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image.
  • H Crop: Will produce a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame
  • SD Pillarbox: Will produce an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center
  • V Crop: Will transform SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image.

Timecode

  • LTC timecode input and output (via 1 x BNC each)

Reference Input

  • Analog Color Black (1V) or Composite Sync (2 or 4V)
