At AJA we understand that creative professionals have a range of software applications and platforms they need to work with.
KONA cards support the broadest range of creative software for editorial, color, mastering, HDR, dailies, live streaming, graphics, game capture and much more.
No other manufacturer can match the breadth of application support and better meet the needs of media professionals. For example, out-of-the-box your AJA hardware and software supports Apple FCP X, Adobe Premiere Pro CC and Avid Media Composer. Pick your application of choice and KONA connects it to your world.
Within supported applications, KONA's Hardware Scalar Acceleration takes processing load off the CPU, allowing your computer to concentrate on what you care about, more real time effects.
No more rendering for raster resizing. Based on our powerful converter technology, KONA's superior "always-on" 10-bit hardware-based up/cross/down-conversion offers you the ability to ingest to the standard of your project while displaying and mastering live simultaneously to HD and SD as your needs require.
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.
All KONA cards feature on-board connectivity, allowing you to use the card without breakout cables or breakout boxes.
Other than KONA HDMI and KONA 1, all other KONA cards feature an included breakout 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.
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.
