AJA is moving in the right direction with VTR Exchange. But I have one question that I hope could be answered by AJA... Why is it in the prefs of the program, you have a choice for the serial ports if you can ONLY use the Kona serial port with VTR Exchange.
It would be very nice if I could control my firewire deck with it for scanning tapes and the odd digitize of a lonely clip. Could make for a nice viewing program if this were added to it.
I know... I know... You're going to say this is only for the upper end pro decks using the serial ports but some of us are still using firewire decks also. This is just a suggestion that would be nice to be considered.
