You asked:
"In addition to the HDMI output for monitoring, will the component outputs work simultaneously or is it either/or?"

The AJA KONA LHi outputs are all active at the same time. (Note: there is an exception for PsF material since HDMI does not normally support PsF, but rather 1080p - true progressive - or 1080i interlaced.)

For example, you could route signal out of the AJA KONA LHi via the SDI, the HDMI and the component analog connectors all at the same time to various monitors if you were working with 1080i, 1080p, 720p, or SD. 1080PsF would be supported on SDI and component, but not HDMI as noted. Additionally, each output can be configured independently. Let's say you have an older SD component monitor that you want to use along with a newer HD monitor. You could configure the HDMI output for HD and configure a downconvert from HD to SD for use on your legacy analog monitor; both outputs would happen simultaneously.

You asked:
"Will the LHi work with all Final Cut, Premier and Avid software well?"
The KONA LHi works with a variety of softwares including Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and Avid Media Composer 6. Support for Final Cut Pro 7 is supplied as part of the driver installation and plug ins specific to Adobe and Avid are also available.

You asked:
"Will the LHi provide the mercury engine that Premier needs to play HD footage smoothly or is that a different animal NVIDEA 4000?"
Adobe Mercury Playback Engine support is provided via interaction with specific graphics cards when used in conjunction with Adobe applications. You can read more about it here:
and here

You asked:
"Would your Kona 3G add a great deal for me if I'm mostly editing EX1 and P2 footage?"
It seems like the KONA LHi would be the best fit for your needs because you have some analog legacy VTRs that you would like to ingest material from. The KONA 3G does not offer analog input; a converter would be required to use analog input with the KONA 3G.

Again, don't hesitate to contact the AJA Sales Department via phone or email if you have additional pre-sales questions.
