Aja Kona 2 & kona 3 with Sony XdCam
on Jan 16, 2008 at 5:02:02 pm

I am trying to get a Sony XDcam format to play out of a Kona 2 or a Kona 3. I have tried numerous formats coupled with multiple Kona settings and been unsuccessful. I have, however, been able to play many of the XDcam formats out of Final Cut using the "Aja: 1080i 29.97 8bit" setting, regardless of the clip format. Unfortunately I can't use Final Cut for my end product and I need to play out of VirtualVTR or at least AjaTV (for now). Any ideas on how to get any XDcam format to play out of a Kona 2 or 3 from AjaTV or VirtualVTR?

That setting is correct for output. 1080i 8 bit for 1080i material that is not 10bit.

If that is the correct setting, any ideas to why it doesn't work then?

have you check to see if the video out is on?

this is the most common problem

What do you mean "on"? In AJATV maybe? The video out is set to Aja Kona.

AJA TV has nothing to do with FCP.

do you have the video out turned on in the application you are working in- it does not just happen by itself.

in FCP that would be View > external video> all frames.

AJA TV DOES NOT SUPPORT HDV of any type, and that would include EX footage.

Only the non Native QT code supported by AJA TV is DVCPROHD so that will not work.

not sure about VTR exchange.
