Re: Compression for Kona HD

Sorry everyone, it's been a few days since I have been able to get onto the forums!

Currently there is no compressed modes on the Kona HD, but it does have the low resolution offline JPEG mode. This is the same format as the Final Cut Pro OfflineRT format, so you can use this with the built in RT in Final Cut Pro. Also, you can play the 23.976, 25 and 29.97 fps versions of these OfflineRT clips out of the Kona SD.

We are going to be making more improvements on all of this, however currently we just want to make sure the Kona HD is running ok, and does not have any bugs. You know how it is, until there is a lot of them out doing every day work, you never really know if everything is ok.

So far the Kona HD is running well. There is one bug that can cause a slowdown in the Log and Capture window if you drop frames while capturing. Closing the Log and Capture window and opening it again fixes it.

Also, we have a wrong setting in the Easy Setup for the Kona HD for guys in PAL countries who are running 1080i/50. They need to change from lower field first rendering to upper field first rendering in the sequence settings.

So apart from some small things, everything looks really good. We hope to have a Kona HD update sometime next week. This will fix the easy setup, and the log and capture window bug.

We have just been extremely busy with the new Mac's and testing and so with OS X 10.2, new Mac's and the Kona HD shipping, it's really keeping us busy.

So far the new Mac's look good. We have had a few reports of people having problems capturing and playing back video when striping disk arrays across who SCSI channels on an ATTO SCSI card. We have not seen this, so are still investigating.

Hope this update is helpful! There is a lot happening, and so I will keep the updates comming!
