If your post-production facility works with a wide variety of formats, frame rates and audio/video sources, the KONA LHi provides the connectivity you need, bridging the gap between analog devices and the latest 3G SDI and HDMI enabled products to provide editing, monitoring and mastering of professional quality video in an affordable, powerful, easy to use product. Connecting to everything from an HDMI enabled camera to an HD-SDI VTR, KONA LHi offers a full host of no-compromise features, including 10-bit or 8-bit uncompressed video, 2-channel AES digital audio and 8-channel SDI embedded digital audio, analog composite or S-video or SD/HD component video I/O, 2-channel balanced analog audio I/O, and broadcast-quality hardware-based up-,down-,cross-conversion for flexible SD and HD post production.
KONA LHi supports a full HDMI workflow with 10-bit ‘deep color’ output for the best image quality possible. HDMI signals can also be converted to SDI for use in more professional environments.KONA LHi features full 10-bit, broadcast quality, motion-adaptive SD to HD up-conversion, HD to HD cross-conversion, HD to SD down- conversion, and automatic HD/SD 12-bit component analog output.
Since KONA LHi’s conversions are hardware-based, they are available all the time - during ingest or playback. Outputs can be configured independently allowing you to have simultaneous HD and SD output - or two different types of HD: 720 or 1080 - output at the same time via cross-conversion.
