As you're in the Kona forum, that's easy. AJA's products do "real" realtime hardware conversion on their boards, nothing in software.
I tested BlackMagic and AJA products when I was making my decision which way to go. That was three years ago and we now have 7 AJA products in the shop, 0 BMD products. AJA products are broadcast centric and they just work.
ּHi Walter, thanks for the fast reply.
i tried to understand what is the difference between multibridge and kona + box.
i am going to use this for capturing 10/12 bit uncompressed sdi . not too much output to tape.
was planing on using the edirol vc300 for conversions (pal<>ntsc mostly)
do you know of any good comparison between aja and bmd? i cant get these things here for testing, so i have to read reviews and trust my luck.
