    Re: Avid DSv11.1.1 now available for download

    Dear Tony,

    I would like to know if installing MC 7 on the same workstation as DS 11.1.1 is supported.

    I have a customer that has an issue with the drivers of the Kona 3G.

    The default DS installation suggests to use the 10.1.0 build 16 64bit Kona driver which works fine with DS but doesn’t work with either MC 6 or MC 7 for video preview. If he installs the AJA_Win_Drivers-10.4.1-x64.msi  and the AJA_OpenIO-10.4.1.msi he has a video preview in MC7 but DS gives a HAL error.

    Thx for any info.

    Hi Jeroen,

     

    Yes, DSv11.1.1 and MC 7 can co-exist.  I have them both on my system.

    The correct AJA driver is 10.1.0.16 and will work fine for MC, but your customer will need to start the AJA service when he wants to use MC with the AJA.  DS stops the service for itself and doesn't restart it when it exits, so you have to do that manually if you want to use MC with the AJA.


    Obviously, he shoudn't try to run both DS and MC at the same time.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thx Tony,

    Next to the device driver, which open I/O driver do you use on your system?

    Not sure I understand the question.  All I have ever installed is the DS-Supplied AJA 10.1.0.16 retail driver.

    That's strange. MC requires and Open IO driver to be able to access the Kona 3G.

    http://www.aja.com/en/products/kona-3g#support

    On this page are the windows device drivers and the IO drivers for MC.

    Although it is true that many users operates both DS and Media Composer with the common AJA card on the workstation, engineering's official validation is only for DS to use the AJA driver and Kona card and MC to only be used for its software-only option.

    If you decide to use the AJA hardware and driver for the MC option on an Avid DS workstation, this is not supported by Avid.

    Re: Avid DSv11.1.1 now available for download

    Dear Sylvian,

    Thank you for that clarification. I'm aware of the workflow design that DS<>MC was using pre-open I/O and that  MC was still included for that reason only.

    Now DS is EOL it doesn't really matter but still... Since the introduction of the Kona 3G on DS en open I/O in MC the question for a common IO base was a returning question on these forums and on other locations. With the recent certification of MC7 with DS 11.1.1 there was this hope Avid would certify a driver for both applications.

    Jeroen van Eekeres:

    With DS being EOL I would think that highly unlikely.
