Are the Kona LHe and Xena LHe the same cards physically? With the only difference being the drivers required for PC or Mac? I recall seeing something a while back in the support area on the Aja site about this but now can't find it. Seems there was a licensing agreement that had expired and you could now run a Kona as a Xena in a PC.
I have an older Kona LHe and want to try it in a qualified PC.
we´ve installed a Mac pro (intel) + a aja xena lhe with bootcamp,and in macos it works with final cut like a kona amd in windows xp it works like a xena lhe under liquid chrome / adobe cs 3.works fine.
Only need the driver for each S.o.
As has been stated, the Kona/Xena physical part is the same.
Kona LH/Lhe= Xena LH/LHe
Kona LHi = Xena LHi
Kona 3 = Xena 2K
...and note that technically they aren't -operating system- specific. They're -application- specific. Kona is for FCP and Xena is for PPro/Vegas/et al. PPro on Mac OS needs a Xena (or technically Xena drivers).
