Post production software developer SGO has integrated AJA KONA 5 audio and video I/O cards into its full finishing and workflow solution.
Mistika Ultima comprises an AJA KONA 5 card with 12G-SDI I/O connectivity, Mistika Ultima software, an HP Z8 workstation, a high-performance SGO storage solution and other industry-standard hardware, allowing for simplified, optimised 8K production.
KONA 5 is a high-performance eight-lane PCIe 3.0 capture and output card featuring 12G-SDI I/O and HDMI 2.0 output, supported on AJA’s SDK for macOS, Windows and Linux. It is also compatible with Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Avid Media Composer.
SGO MD Geoff Mills added: “8K production is complex and demanding, so we strive to equip our customers with the best technology out there; KONA 5 meets this requirement and was a natural choice for our Mistika Ultima 8K system. The card is durable and versatile, and its four 12G-SDI ports minimise cabling.
