New Desktop Software v13 for KONA, Io and T-TAP and New KONA IP Firmware License for JPEG 2000
With this release, KONA 4, Io 4K and KONA IP gain support for 12-Bit/BT.2020 in Apple Final Cut Pro X; 48p in Avid Media Composer; and 12-bit ProRes 4444 XQ playback; while 4K/UltraHD to HD down-convert is now possible with KONA 4. For a complete list of highlights, check out our release notes on the AJA website.
Now available, our optional KONA IP firmware license ensures interoperability with JPEG 2000 systems across a network with TR 01 support and delivers out of the box functionality for popular creative and editorial apps via Desktop Software v13.
KONA IP users can leverage our new firmware license to compress and decompress HD video in real-time to/from JPEG 2000 encoded within a MPEG 2 transport stream and simultaneously ingest and monitor, relying on an input and output of JPEG 2000 streams over 1GbE. Dual KONA IP configurations are also supported for SDK developers with more demanding JPEG 2000 workflows.
