AJA Kona and Harris Legalizer problem
I work with FCP, KONA 3 and a Harris broadcast legalizer to make broadcast masters on HDCAM.
Despite sending all signal through the legalizer, I have had several shows knocked back for illegal chroma.
I have checked that all settings on the legalizer are correct. I talked to Harris and they said that the Harris legalizers are made to be used for tape to tape copying only – that is you need to have two HDCAM decks, and copy your un-legalized master to the other deck with the legalizer in between. The Harris engineers say that their products will not necessarily work properly with the signal from a KONA card.
Does anyone know of any other hardware legalizers that will work properly with the signal from a KONA card? I really do not want to have to purchase another HDCAM deck just for this purpose!
