It won't work with your Media 100 card. You have a lot of options to run with FCP: Decklink, BLuefish444, AJA, Matrox (Only for video output) at a wide range of prices for SD and HD, but nothing as easy to work with like Media 100i or Media100HD products.

it would seem to me that buying a AJA kona 3 card would make sense. not only are they the best around IMHO but you may just find they work with your media 100 projects with a little bit of footwork (acc to derek)

"As most people know V11 is being sold with new AJA hardware/breakout box. Boris explained that the V11 updates will still be compatible with the HDX boards currently used with Media100 HD. The AJA hardware has some advantages though, particularly for those who have migrated to Final Cut Pro - all is forgiven, with a dual boot Mac and the AJA hardware the user will be able to run both Media100 HD and Final Cut Pro on the same Mac! (particularly useful if you have a lot of old Media100 timelines to access and now only own FCP!"

A note of caution here. My understanding of the whole FCP & Media 100 on same hardware issue is that although it may be possible to make FCP run on the AJA hardware shipping with V11 - Media 100 have no plans to sell the V11 software/drivers without the hardware.

So whereas you could (in theory) add the FCP software to your V11 Hardware, you won't be able to just add V11 software to an existing FCP/Kona system.

My advice would be to wait until the first V11 systems hit the streets and make a decision then.

But what about the slot issue. Or the lack off.

If you have no more slots look at the AJA IO. It is firewire based SD only and is a great product.
