by Bob Zelin 14 years ago
I think that it's pretty sad that I have to rely on AJA (the HD10AM) to get my clients AVID Adrenaline HD system to use embedded audio with the AJ-HD1200A VTR. Not only does AJA currently make a bette

by Mladen Erjavec 14 years ago
Hi I have a simple question: does KONA 2 support HD 1080i 50 I can't see this format on the list that is downloadable from their website, and their support person ambiguously avoids direct andswer to

SATA Oddity - can anyone confirm?
by rupert watson 14 years ago
I have a DP 2.5 G5 with two HDDs; one with OS X 10.3.9 FCP 4.5 QT 6.52 and the other with Tiger, FCP 5.02 and QT 7.01. I ended up with this because I installed (as a test) a Swiftdata 200 bracket and
