The Kona 3G is the ideal choice for uncompressed SD, HD, Dual Link HD, 2K and 3G. The Kona 3G features 10-bit uncompressed video I/O, the newest HDMI 1.4a support for 3D workflows, 16 channel embedded audio I/O, and up to 16-channel AES digital audio I/O (with optional K3G box). The Kona 3G also features realtime hardware-based up/down/cross conversion for working seamlessly with a wide variety of SD and HD, 3G, dual-link HD and 2K formats. A hardware downstream keyer also allows for compositing graphics without rendering.

The Kona 3G offers a simple and affordable path through 3D Stereoscopic workflows. 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 mixed feeds for SDI stereo monitoring are accessible through tight integration with CineForm's stereo codecs in Apple FCP and Adobe CS5 timelines for Side by Side, Top Bottom and many more. Through HDMI 1.4a, you can utilize more affordable 3D monitors for Side by Side, Top Bottom and Frame Packed needs.
