Description

Control the most exciting projects by using the KONA 5. The AJA KONA 5 capture card provides 8-lane PCIe 3.0 I/O card, designed for today's tough video and audio workflows. The KONA 5 offers 10-bit 4K Ultra HD I/O that can be obtained with a single 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI or quad 3G-SDI cables. KONA 5 has a bidirectional 12G-SDI port that provides an immense flexibility for capture and simultaneous pass through, and with the proper software, multi-channel capture and streaming. 

In addition, the AJA KONA 5 has a full-sized HDMI 2.0 linking, which offers monitoring and output with HDR. The KONA 5 is the professional’s selection for broadcast, post, graphics, pre-viz, virtual sets and performing live action compositing.

The Kona 5 has full-sized HDMI connection that supports 2K/ HD/ 4K/Ultra HD I/O and HDR

The full-sized HDMI 2.0 link display has a 4K/ Ultra HD/ 2K/HD resolution that projects profound colors. The HDR elevates the contrast ratio of the display. This allows the display for a wider and richer series of colors. These features combine, delivers an extraordinary dynamic appearance. The 4K/ Ultra HD projection in the display can be achieved by connecting a single 12G-SDI, 6G-SDI or star-quad 3G-SDI cables.

For the 2k/ HD resolution, it will require a single 3G-SDI cable, or dual link 1.5G-SDI. This will allow the capture and monitoring via SDI to take place simultaneously. The Kona 5 capture card ships with a breakout cable that allows extensive connection for AES, RS-422 control assistance and references. This support 8-channels of AES/EBU IN/OUT.

KONA 5 Features 

12G-SDI I/O and HDMI 2.0 monitoring/output for 4K, UltraHD, 2K, HD and SD with HFR support up to 4K 60p at YUV 10-bit 4:2:2 and support for RGB 12-bit 4:4:4 up to 4K 30p
