Upside down picture on the broadcast monitor
The picture on your broadcast monitor is upside down, although the AJA card is correctly wired to the monitor, and the monitor is properly configured.
This issue occurs when multiple applications, including Smoke, are using the AJA Kona card. The issue is that the AJA card does not reset itself when you switch between applications.
Rebooting your Mac eliminates this problem and brings your broadcast monitor picture back to normal.
Perform the following tasks to solve this issue without rebooting your Mac.

- Exit any applications that are using the AJA card.
- Open the AJA control panel from the Applications folder.
- Click the Control tab.

- Close the AJA control panel.
The AJA card will now reset itself correctly when switching between applications, and you should no longer see an upside down picture in the broadcast monitor.
