AJA Control Panel

AJA’s free Desktop Software for control of KONA and Io devices includes AJA Control Panel, a powerful and elegant interface for working with your chosen hardware.

Control Panel provides a simple visual of how the KONA or Io hardware is currently configured and allows you to make changes. You can change signal input and output parameters and define the video processing that will be performed. The AJA software installer automatically installs the Control Panel application on your computer and once opened AJA Control Panel recognizes the connected hardware and provides configuration and settings options appropriate to it’s capabilities.

Connectivity

All KONA cards feature on-board connectivity, allowing you to use the card without break-out-cables or break-out-boxes.

Other than KONA HDMI and KONA 1, all other KONA cards feature an included break-out-cable and optional Breakout Box, either of which enables extended I/O and the ability to easily connect to KONA without having to access the rear of the host computer or expansion chassis.

AJA Control Room

Another incredibly valuable tool that comes with your AJA KONA card is AJA Control Room.

Use macOS, Windows or Linux to capture to a variety of formats that can be immediately used in your creative package of choice.

For example, on the same system at the same time, it is possible to capture incoming video to MXF using AJA Control Room, while editing the growing file in Adobe Premiere Pro CC. Real-world flexibility and power, and without any additional price tag.
