Tom, Thanks for the link, that is great news to be sure!
I notice on the video that the playback was delayed about 2 frames or so on the broadcast monitor compared to the Computer… Do you now if Adobe (or AJA for that matter) has the option to adjust for this delay? Like FCP did?
Just wanted to add to the grief that aja eol kona lhe. I understand that it had a quite long life but it would still work with new drivers. I wonder what is so much better in the lhe plus that makes lhe useless?
I am about to buy an aja kona 3 and I have some questions
I want to use it in adobe premiere pro (probably cs 5)
and I want to make some editing – sd and hd – some bmp images mixed with some adobe animation, efects, motions, etc – which works very hard at the moment on my system (barton 2500+)
My question is, will it improve the editing capabilities, rendering time, etc?
The Kona line cards are for Broadcast video in and out of your edit machine so you can monitor a proper signal on a broadcast monitor. They wont give you faster renders or faster editing. What you would need for this is a nVidia Cuda accelerated graphics (GUI) card (I use the GTX570) Adobe CS uses these cuda cores to accelerate many things and you will notice a huge jump in performance once you have one installed and you activate the GPU acceleration within Premiere.
Other things you can do to help with your speed challenges is cram as much RAM into your system as you can afford and get yourself a fast RAID hard drive array.
Oh! and upgrade to Premieree CS6! CS5 is a major pain with some things (i/o cards and such) and 5.5 isn’t much better. Huge improvements in CS6
