Features

Professional Connectivity
KONA 4 features bi-directional 3G-SDI connections that can be used for input and output. 16-Channels of embedded audio over SDI for multi-channel audio work and HDMI 2.0b monitoring output. LTC I/O, Genlock input, RS-422 control, configurable 3 x BNC SD/HD analog video output and 8-channel AES audio I/O with the K3G-Box all allow KONA 4 to integrate into a variety of workflows from HDR to HFR, 4K to Multi-Channel HD for streaming and more.

HDR
HDR or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colours, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colours to be communicated to
your audience.

KONA 4 provides this support for your 4K/UltraHD/2K and HD HDR pipelines to HDMI compatible displays in software v13 by offering HDR10 support with HDR 10 Infoframe metadata, in accordance with HDMI 2.0a/CTA-861.3 and HLG support on applicable HDMI displays. Desktop Software v13 introduces HLG support over HDMI for the latest versions of Adobe
Premiere CC.

Powerful
KONA 4’s extensive 4K support allows output directly from editing systems to 4K projectors or monitors, including HFR support at 50/60 fps and 4K HDMI output to support the latest UltraHD monitors, allowing editors and clients to view full resolution 4K images as they work.

KONA 4 also supports AJA Raw capture at up to 120 fps via 4 3G-SDI connections. Create beautiful and detailed slow motion with an engaging cinematic feel via AJA Control Room.
