AJA upgrades Ki Pro GO & Ki Pro Ultra Plus
AJA Video Systems has upgraded its Ki Pro Family of file-based recorders with the v1.5 firmware update for Ki Pro GO and v5.0 for Ki Pro Ultra Plus.
The Ki Pro GO update adds timecode recording and playback, expanded primary and backup recording to all USB ports and new clip naming and segment recording. Ki Pro Ultra Plus v5.0 introduces a new Infinite Recording feature that allows the unit to act as an always running backup recorder. Both firmware updates will be available soon to customers as free downloads.
Ki Pro GO is AJA’s portable, multi-channel H.264 recorder and player, featuring up to four channels of simultaneous HD and SD capture to off-the-shelf USB media. With the v1.5 firmware update, Ki Pro GO now records and plays video with timecode. The timecode can originate from an incoming SDI video’s RP188 data, be recorded as the time of date or be specified to start at a specific hour. For playback, timecode values are automatically embedded as RP188 data on Ki Pro GO’s SDI outputs. The v1.5 update also expands backup and primary recording to all five USB ports. Additionally, the update adds new clip naming and segment recording, automatically creating a unique file name for each clip and identifying each segment of a continuous recording for extended event time needs.
The Ki Pro Ultra Plus is a multi-channel HD Apple ProRes and single-channel 4K Avid DNxHR and ProRes recorder. The v5.0 firmware update adds performance enhancements and a new Infinite Record mode that automatically captures all footage, providing the ability to run as an always running backup recorder. Infinite Record mode includes automatic formatting and rollover to both AJA Pak Media slots for uninterrupted recording, so there is no downtime when one drive fills up. Ki Pro Ultra Plus offers up to four channels of simultaneous HD recording, or 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD recording and playback via SDI and HDMI.
