Under pressure! But, who isn't these days! Connecting old tech to new tech!
on Jan 1, 2016 at 11:18:30 pm

Hello, I'm trying to capture video from 3/4 tapes using a Sony VO9850 deck. I have a AJA Kona LHe Plus internal card in a MacPro 4,1 OS X 10.8.5 24GB Ram 2x2.26 Quad-Cre Intel Xeon. How do I connect them or what do I need to connect them. I am using FCP 7. I also have the standard cable that comes with the card. I tried connecting in several different ways. I am receiving audio because I see it on the FCP meter but I can't hear it during playback or see correct video. I see a scrabbled picture. Advice?

Do you have Genlock? A Color Sync Generator? Black Burst. You need something to stabilize the video signal.

No! I do not! I knew something was missing! Thanks! Any suggestions on which company, name and model of a good color sync generator with black burst or genlock device to purchase to stabilize the video signal?

AJA has a Gen10 it does HD and SD Genlock. Horta also makes a black burst gen.

See if you can rent one if it's just a few tapes.

Thanks for the info! However, it's not just for a few tapes. We have several tapes to convert. Do you know which one will handle such an old deck?

AJA Gen10 is great. I own both but use the Gen10.

I was able to get a Blackmagic Mini Converter Sync Generator. But, I am still having the same probable! I have the video out from the Sony VO9850 going to sync generator and Ref in from the AJA Kona LHe plus going to the sync generator but a scrabble picture still appears in the capture window of FCP 07. What am I doing incorrectly?

Is the deck terminated with an SDI terminator? Not sure if you need one with that deck.

I believe I have one. What does it look like? Once I find it, where is the BNC SDI suppose to be connected?

It looks like a BNC barrel extender with one side close off. Where it goes depends on your cabling set up. Mine is on my breakout box on the ref loop chain.

Thanks for your help! Between you and the tech at AJA the problem was solved. The settings in the Kona control panel and in FCP 07 had to be configured for this old deck format and the internal Kona card to communicate.
