“Our customers need flexible workflow options, so we’ve delivered incredible new features and performance enhancements to the latest Adobe Creative Cloud release that help simplify high-res post workflows,” said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. “AJA’s KONA family of products delivers stellar capture and playback performance that supports Adobe Creative Cloud. The synergy between the products opens up new possibilities for post pros working in HD, 2K, 4K or beyond.”

“Adobe and AJA have a long history of working together to provide the creative community with simplified workflows for producing media, even when working with high-frame rate video,” said AJA president Nick Rashby. “With this latest support, Adobe Creative Cloud users can tap into KONA 4 to streamline ingest, monitoring and management of multi-format 4K, UltraHD, HD and SD files while maintaining top image quality.”

KONA 4 was previously only available through AJA’s channel for third-party developers, but is now available as a retail product with drivers for Windows 7 and Windows 8. Additionally, a new update for the free AJA Control Room software for ingest, playback and output on Windows now supports KONA 4.

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
