Becuase XDCam isn't 10bit Uncompressed. I would imagine you would need the AJA Kona 1080i HDV Playback option.

Try the 8bit setup. Mine works with this but not the 10 bit. I think it has to do with what the monitor will accept.

Hi guys thanks for the response but im still having trouble, let me try to explain.

I dont know why but a couple of weeks ago i could view my footage on my monitor via my kona Lhe, nice and clear with the set up 1080i 25 10 bit uncompressed now i cant?
Anway my footage is progressive and not interlaced and there is no easy setup for 1080p 25? it will however play back when i select any of the 720p setups but the picture looks all flickery, the only set up which has a clear picture is the 1080psf 24 10 bit uncompressed setting but this wont play back just updates when i move the time line, so it looks like i need to use a ajakona 1080p 25 set up which dosent seem to exist?

Please help?????

[Emmet Reddy] "Anway my footage is progressive and not interlaced and there is no easy setup for 1080p 25?"

because your cameras format is called progressive segmented frame and is always played as interlaced output on a display hence the setting is called 25i.

the EX cannot handle a truly progressive output in 1080 because that is not the format. The only camera that most people can use that shoots and outputs as 1080p is the RED camera.


[Emmet Reddy] "so it looks like i need to use a ajakona 1080p 25 set up which dosent seem to exist? "

for the EX camera you would need to use the AJA Kona 1080 25i setup.
