Kona 2 downconvert Pro Res in Real Time?

Hi COW-ers:

Just wanted to confirm that my Kona 2 (on my G5 Dual 2.7) will downconvert Pro Res 720p or 1080p files in realtime. Anyone done this successfully?

Thanks in advance.

Best, JIM.

Not sure if you can do that with that G5. The Processors are still handling the ProRes conversion.

Call AJA and they'll tell you definitively, but my first instinct is no.

Hey Walter:

Thanks for this. Just spoke to Tony at AJA and he says it should work fine. Just gotta set up the control panel for secondary SD downconvert, as per usual.

Thanks AJA. You guys rock!

Best, JIM.

I cannot get reliable playback of Pro Res in HD on a Dual 2.0 G5.

Yes, my drive array is fast enough (I can play uncompressed HD on it). Its the processors that choke.

Hopefully you have better luck with your G5.

Hey folks:

Did a quick test and AJA was right. Plays back perfectly fine on my machine -- and down-converts to SD in realtime. Ready to cut!

Thanks AJA.

Best, JIM.
