Kona 3 Digital Audio?
on Aug 5, 2008 at 2:21:31 pm

I had a question about the audio inputs on the Kona 3. I have an HD-SDI feed from our routing system to my editing bay that provides a high definition signal. The problem is we still have analog audio coming into the edit bay and I don't think I can input stereo XLR to the Kona 3 card because the Kona 3 just has Digital EAS Audio inputs.

Does anyone know of any work arounds to get my audio with my video or maybe a good analog to Digital EAS converter? Am I on the right track?

Thanks ahead of time!

Dean

So you just need the audio into suites for playback and not for capture because obviously you're capturing the audio embedded via HD-SDI. The Kona 3 has a pair of RCA analog audio outputs that you can easily feed to your edit suite. This is what we're now doing.

AJA also has the ADA-4 A/D audio converter as well.

To clarify, you need the K3 breakout box to get the stereo RCA analog audio outputs. The card itself has no analog audio.

I use the ADA4 AJA mini converter for that purpose. It works fine:

Cool. I think the mini converter will do the trick. Thanks for all of your help!
