Using integrated hardware processing, the KONA 4 PCI-E Video I/O Card from AJA can ingest and output 4K resolution video at up to 60 fps. With that resolution, you can view the details of your production natively on a 4K monitor. Along with 4K resolutions, the KONA 4 supports uncompressed 1080p I/O with 4:4:4 or 4:2:2 color subsampling. The KONA 4 can simultaneously input and output uncompressed video via its 3G-SDI ports. Two ports accept the video input while the other two can drive a professional display or output to a recording deck.
The hardware processing also allows for up, down, and cross-conversion. Usually to unify project resolution, footage must be converted or rendered in software to match it to the project. With its internal hardware scaler, the KONA 4 can unify the resolutions of the video clips in your project without prior rendering. In addition to conversion, the KONA’s internal processing can overlay graphics on a video stream for quick keying.
The KONA 4 includes a 60-pin breakout cable for more I/O flexibility. Additional inputs and outputs include AES/EBU audio, LTC and Reference BNC connections, component analog video, and RSS-422 machine control. Also included are a 4-BNC to mini-BNC Link Cable and an HDMI to mini-HDMI cable. The KONA 4 can also be used in a rackmount configuration with the optional K3G Breakout Box. The K3G fits in a standard 19″ rack space and has connections to take advantage of all the I/O the KONA 4 has to offer.

|Down-Conversion||Hardware 10-bit Anamorphic: full-screen Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size|
|Up-Conversion||Hardware 10-bit Anamorphic: full-screen Pillar box 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars Zoom Letterbox: results in image zoomed to fill full screen Zoom Wide: results in a combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill a 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change|
|Cross-Conversion||Hardware 10-bit 1080i to 720p 720p to 1080i 720p to 1080PsF|
|SD to SD Aspect Ratio Conversion||Letterbox: This transforms SD anamorphic material to a letterboxed image H Crop: Will produce a horizontally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame SD Pillarbox: Will produce an image in the center of the screen with black borders on the left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center V Crop: Will transform SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image|
