For SDI video, the KONA LHe Plus features one input and two outputs and can be configured independently for HD or SD. It offers Genlock input and three BNCs which may be configured for analog video input and output (HD or SD). Also included is a 9-pin connector for RS-422 machine control. Because the KONA LHe Plus supports analog component HD input and output, devices with analog HD output, such as HDV decks and even game consoles, can be connected for a variety of workflows. KONA LHe Plus features full 10-bit, broadcast-quality, motion-adaptive HD to SD down-conversion, and HD/SD 12-bit component analog output. Since conversion is hardware-based, it’s available all the time – during ingest or playback.
