AJA Ki Pro Family

AJA made a splash a few years ago with the introduction of the KI Pro; an affordable and revolutionary file based recording device. This range has now been expanded to incorporate the Ki Pro Mini, Ki Pro Rack and the Ki-Pro Quad.

The range has 10bit recording capabilities from SD right up to 4k with Pro Res and Avid DNX codec support giving you true representation of what is being shot Add to this the KI-Pro Rack’s ability to up, down and cross convert as well as automate playout and you have a very solid product line up.

Control of the Ki-pro range could not be easier with the Ki-Pro and the Ki-Pro Rack featuring RS422 for machine control or for utilisation with the NLE of your choice and the KI-Pro Mini and the KI-Pro 4k featuring LANC control for use with Camera setups.

The full Ki-Pro range features Ethernet interfaces for web browser configuration and you can control group setups. The Ki-Pro Range records to either CFCards or the Kistor range of HDD SSD giving you the ability to easily transition from production to post.
