    MC hardware device with 4 AES outputs?

     

    MC is unable to use 2 hardware devices - one for video and another for audio simultaneously - as Pro Tools does.

    So I'm looking for an MC [and Pro Tools] compatible output device that has 4 AES digital audio outputs as well as HDMI and SDI HD/2K/UHD.

    Any suggestions welcomed.

    AJA Kona 4? BMD DeckLink Studio 4K?

    not sure about PT compatibility. Fairly sure DNxIO etc. cannot be used as Audio Output by PT.

    Aja cards work as basic output interfaces with PT (10.)

    Kona 3/4 has 4 AES outputs. I use an AjA LHi with an Aja dis-embedder to give the AES outputs for 5.1 monitoring in MC.

    For sound? As I read the BMD/Avid Artist boxes cannot be used for sound outputs, picture only. Just trying to clarify.

    DNXIO cant be used for audio input and output at the same time in protools, making it moderately useless in most instances. I haven't tested it with picture.  

     

    Kona 3G has worked for me previously for video and AES output (with a K3G box) in protools on a cheese grater mac pro.
