HDR or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer
range of colours, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than
standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows
for natural true to life colours to be communicated to your audience.
KONA 4 provides this support for your 4K/UltraHD/2K and HD HDR pipelines to HDMI
compatible displays in software v13 by offering HDR10 support with HDR 10
Infoframe metadata, in accordance with HDMI 2.0a/CTA-861.3 and HLG support on
applicable HDMI displays. Desktop Software v13 introduces HLG support over HDMI
for the latest versions of Adobe Premiere CC.
Apple Mac Pro Compatible
AJA offers full compatibility for the new Apple Mac Pro, including support for
AJA Control Room with Metal compatibility as well as extensive support for a
range of applications.
For productions handling high resolution workflows all the way up to 4K, KONA 4
is a perfect video and audio I/O companion.
High Frame Rate support
KONA 4 has the power to support 4K High Frame Rate (HFR) at 50p and 60p for the
most demanding 4K and UltraHD workflows.
4K HDMI output
The HDMI output is capable of displaying 4K/UltraHD via HDMI to many of the
latest UltraHD monitors, making full-resolution monitoring affordable while stil
maintaining pristine image quality.
AR support with Unreal Engine 4.22
Capture real time footage with KONA 4 over SDI from high quality cameras, meld
your footage with your virtual environment created by the Unreal Engine and send
it back out in real time to air - a growing need for broadcasters, augmented
reality (AR) needs and more.
Digital film makers also benefit with these new workflows: On set, enhance your
live action VFX work with the ability to see a full composite live during the
course of the shoot. This results in fewer reshoots, the ability for actors to
understand the virtual environment they are working within for stronger
performances and ultimately leads to a range of efficiencies and cost savings
with the added benefit of a smoother transition into post production.
