I don't believe there are any Windows drivers available for the Kona. Last time I checked, only the Xena board is supported under Windows.

The official stance is that AJA will support boot camp when Apple officially supports Boot Camp in the Leopard release.

So for now, no...but soon.

What does AJA make that will only run on Windows, so you would
need to do Boot Camp on a Mac?

The Xena cards, Machina, support for Avid Liquid Xe, Vegas, and Premiere Pro (though PP will soon be remedied)

If you are into those products, why not just run them on PCs?
Why deal with boot camp?
Are there features and benefits with them that you like better than FCP?
Or do you not use FCP? Just curious.

There are some things that PP, Vegas, and Liquid can do that FCP can't. Alternately, there are some things that FCP can do that the others can't. If you have the best tool for a particular job and know how to use it, why wouldn't you?

Alternately, some post shops need the ability to work in multiple environments depending on client demands. So bootcamp support could theoretically save them time and money by having a multi-purpose machine instead of two different ones.

Make sense. Please let us know if boot camp works for this.

I'm interested in trying boot camp for a PC only product that does
waveform monitoring. I don't want to spend 24k for 2 new HD waveforms
for two suites so I'm looking into using Hamlet vidscope fx which is
only Windows software. It says it needs active-x to work.
Does boot camp have this?

Thanks,
Dan

For all intents and purposes, Bootcamp is just a set of drivers for Mac that allows *almost* full hardware functionality when booted into windows. As for software, if it works on Windows on an HP or IBM, it works in Boot Camp.

That is an excellent excuse for a (wince) PeeCee. You can build one for this purpose for maybe $1k or less, plus the cost of a Xena card.

Or you could run Scopebox on a Mac. http://www.scopebox.com/

I'm running several Kona 3 systems on MacPro's with windows and indeed, you can install Xena drivers and the card shows up, even sends bars from AE. In Machina you can even step through video, but not play back in realtime. Techs at Aja have indeed confirmed to me that the Kona will not be fully functional as a Xena card under windows until Bootcamp is out of beta. Hopefully that will be soon!
