IMPORTANT NOTE: The usage of AJA SDI connectors have changed in Mistika 8.6, in comparisson with 8.5 and early betas of 8.6 version. This was made in order to accomodate  1.5G modes that were missing in previous versions.


The differences are in the SD/HD/2K modes, both for 2D and Stereo3D.


MISTIKA 8.6:


KONA_4 :


For SD/HD and 2k


SDI 1 -> Output (3G or 1.5G)

SDI 2 -> Output (1.5G with RGB Dual Link)

SDI 3 -> Input

SDI 4 -> Input (1.5G with RGB Dual Link)


For SD/HD and 2k Stereo3D Dual:


SDI 1 -> Output (Left eye)

SDI 2 -> Output (Right eye)

SDI 3 -> Input (Left eye)

SDI 4  -> Input (Right eye)


For 4K


SDI 1 -> Output/Input

SDI 2 -> Output/Input

SDI 3 -> Output/Input

SDI 4 -> Output/Input


CORVID_88 :


For SD/HD and 2k


Connector 1 -> Output (3G or 1.5G)

Connector 2 -> Output (1.5G with RGB Dual Link)

Connector 3 -> Input

Connector 4 -> Input (1.5G with RGB Dual Link)


For SD/HD and 2k Stereo3D Dual:


Connector 1 -> Output (Left eye)

Connector 2 -> Output (Right eye)

Connector 3 -> Input (Left eye)

Connector 4 -> Input (Right eye)


For 4K


Connector 1 -> Output

Connector 2 -> Output

Connector 3 -> Output

Connector 4 -> Output

Connector 5 -> Input

Connector 6 -> Input

Connector 7 -> Input

Connector 8 -> Input


For 4K Stereo3D Dual


Connector 1 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 2 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 3 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 4 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 5 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 6 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 7 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 8 -> Output/Input (Right eye)


For 8K. It is necessary to use Two Corvid88 Boards.


Corvid88-0 > Slot-4 (Controlled by CPU-1)

Corvid88-1 > Slot-5 (Controlled by CPU-1)

Connectors and quadrant related.

Corvid88-0 (Slot-4). Connectors 1 - 4 > Quadrant Upper - Left

Corvid88-0 (Slot-4). Connectors 5 - 8 > Quadrant Upper - Right

Corvid88-1 (Slot-5). Connectors 1 - 4 > Quadrant Lower - Left

Corvid88-1 (Slot-5). Connectors 5 - 8 > Quadrant Lower - Right


As a reference, the Mistika 8.5 connections (now obsolete) were like this:


KONA_4 :


For SD/HD and 2k


SDI 1 -> Output

SDI 2 -> Input


For SD/HD and 2k Stereo3D Dual:


SDI 1 -> Output (Left eye)

SDI 2 -> Input (Left eye)

SDI 3 -> Output (Right eye)

SDI 4 -> Input (Right eye)


For 4K


SDI 1 -> Output/Input

SDI 2 -> Output/Input

SDI 3 -> Output/Input

SDI 4 -> Output/Input


CORVID_88 :


For SD/HD and 2k


Connector 1 -> Output

Connector 2 -> Input


For SD/HD and 2k Stereo3D Dual:


Connector 1 -> Output (Left eye)

Connector 2 -> Input (Left eye)

Connector 3 -> Output (Right eye)

Connector 4 -> Input (Right eye)


For 4K


Connector 1 -> Output

Connector 2 -> Output

Connector 3 -> Output

Connector 4 -> Output

Connector 5 -> Input

Connector 6 -> Input

Connector 7 -> Input

Connector 8 -> Input


For 4K STEREO


Connector 1 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 2 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 3 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 4 -> Output/Input (Left eye)

Connector 5 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 6 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 7 -> Output/Input (Right eye)

Connector 8 -> Output/Input (Right eye)
