AJA Video Systems recently announced Ki Pro Ultra Plus, introducing 1, 2, 3 or 4-channel simultaneous HD recording up to 1080 50/60p, and full HDMI 2.0 (up to 12-bit capture and output) for 4K/UltraHD workflows.

The new Ki Pro Ultra Plus is ideal for recording multi-cam shoots in HD multi-channel mode, and 4K/UltraHD recording and playback in single-channel mode. Ki Pro Ultra Plus is housed in a compact, easy-to-operate, standalone 2RU half-rack and has broad I/O flexibility and connectivity options including 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 and optional fibre connections. Ki Pro Ultra Plus captures pristine 4K/UltraHD and HD video to widely accepted production codecs including Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD MXF.

Four channels of HD can be recorded simultaneously as Apple ProRes files, each with different compression profiles as desired, to robust AJA Pak 1000 SSD media. Ki Pro Ultra Plus includes the proven Ki Protect technology, ensuring that in the event of power failure or inadvertent withdrawal of a Pak Drive, recently recorded footage is always secure. All four channels can be displayed on Ki Pro Ultra Plus’s LCD screen as a quad-split during capture for confidence monitoring, as well as the ability to output the quad-split over HDMI, SDI, and even on the integrated browser-based web UI during capture.

“What sets Ki Pro Ultra Plus apart is the combination of multi-channel HD recording, 4K recording and playback, full HDMI 2.0 support, a full featured web-based UI for control and configuration, and Ki Protect, providing peace of mind on all productions,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. “Our Ki Pro family is one of our most popular product lines and this latest addition adds some of the most requested customer features.”
