New Product Awards 2018 – AJA KONA HDMI (Video, Other Video Product)

In the age of social media and cord cutting, live streaming has become a powerful communication tool, allowing houses of worship to engage and evolve with their communities. Communities around the world are streaming services and events to connect with a wider audience as well as parishioners who may not be able to attend in-person – whether ill or traveling.

To meet the demand, this summer AJA launched KONA HDMI – an affordable, intuitive HDMI capture card that simplifies multi-channel UltraHD and HD streaming for houses of worship.

Available for $895 U.S. MSRP, the flexible card allows facilities to capture up to four HDMI camera signals and other HDMI streams, and live stream and switch using software like vMix or Telestream Wirecast for delivery to a range of content delivery networks (i.e. YouTube, Facebook Live, etc.) and viewing across consumer devices.

Alternatively, for facilities embracing UltraHD, the latest software update for the device will allow users to leverage the first two ports for UltraHD capture. For single-channel capture, AJA Control Room™ software also supports the creation of digital media for use in editing and effects packages. KONA HDMI is compatible with MacOS X, Windows and Linux, and supports a range of third-party software.

Key features include:

  • Four full-size HDMI inputs
  • HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 1.4b
  • Standard PCIe form factor
  • Embedded HDMI audio in, up to eight per channel (for a total of 32 possible audio channels)
  • Simultaneously ingest or switching for up to two UltraHD or four HD sources with appropriate third-party software – Ingest for 4K/UltraHD 60p using Port 1, and 4K/UltraHD 30p using Port 2 – AJA Retail* and SDK support – Video4Linux (V4L2) and DirectShow compatibility As the demand for live streaming continues to grow among the HOW community,

AJA KONA HDMI provides a versatile, affordable and straightforward solution to help them bring audiences high quality live streams, making it an idea fit for a 2018 Worship Facilities New Product Award.
