AJA KONA LHe Plus

The KONA LHe plus is a powerful video and audio I/O with a full set of no-compromise features for video professionals. The KONA LHe Plus offers video professionals at all levels a desktop I/O solution that doesn't compromise on quality or essential functionality. KONA LHe Plus supports both HD/SD analog and digital I/O for video and audio, providing maximum capability, simplifying integrating analog and digital signals into a single workflow and multiple output options to ensure you can deliver whatever formats are required.

With support for 10-bit or 8-bit uncompressed video, KONA LHE Plus features one input and two outputs which can be configured independently for HD or SD. KONA LHe Plus also includes 2-channel AES digital audio, 8-channel SDI embedded digital audio, analog composite/S-video/SD/HD component video I/O, 2-channel balanced analog audio I/O, Genlock input, and three BNCs which may be configured for analog video input and output (HD or SD).

Because KONA LHe Plus supports 12-bit analog component HD input and output, devices with analog HD output, such as analog VTRs and game consoles, can be connected for a variety of workflows.
