Kona 3
on Oct 23, 2006 at 7:30:01 am

Hi All,

This question may seem very silly, out of place and even in the wrong forum but I will ask it anyway.

I am looking to upgrade my Media 100 (yes, I know there is a M100 forum) to the top line HD Suite which comes with a Kona 3 card and BOB etc.

If I want to digitise plain old ansalogue VHS (time base corrected of course) into the computer as SD, how Do I achieve this with Kona 3?

Please Bob, not too harsh a response, but I am ready.

Actually a good question because there are no analog inputs on the Kona 3. You have several options.

I have the AJA Io LA which features analog Component, Composite and S-Video I/O and can be used alongside a Kona 3 in the same system. Outstanding box, the only thing you need to know is that all analog inputs are XLR so if you only have RCA out from your VHS machine, you'll need to pick up some RCA to XLR adapters or cables.

Another option is to look at AJA's array of analog to digital converters to convert your analog signal to SDI. That allows you to feed your analog signals directly to the K3.

I prefer the Io LA because there are multiple options on it for analog.

I'm running a Kona 3 and an Aja Io on the same computer with no problems. I run an Aja La on another system with good results as well.

I thought as much. Thanks guys.
How do you connect the Kona 3 and IO to the computer at the same time?
I'm just asking about the physical connections, NOT capturing at the same time.

Cheers
David

Kona card is installed inside your machine.

Io is connected via Firewire.

I knew about Kona inside, it was IO being via the inbuilt firewire that I did not know about until now.
Thanks again Walter.
Makes sense.

So choosing which input device be it Kona or IO is selectable from....?

Thanks
