AJA Ki Pro Ultra 12G Multi-Channel HD Recorder

AJA Ki Pro Ultra 12G is multi-channel recorder offering 4K/UHD Apple ProRes® or Avid DNxHR® in a single channel mode or 4 channels of simultaneous HD recording. It can be used for 4K workflows thanks to single 12G-SDI or Quad Link. It’s not only SDI connectivity which is available but as well USB 2.0 in/out for 4K monitoring, AES, analogue XLR balanced audio, LTC and RS-422. Due to convenient form factor of 2RU his portable recorder/player can be used in a broadcast facility, mobile OB trucks or on location. Its built-in webserver allows remote configuration, control, monitoring and file transfers via standard web browser.

AJA Ki Pro Ultra 12G also allows users to record 4K/UHD rasters with Avid codecs within an MXF wrapper, supporting Avid editors and native MXF workflows with more flexible options. Multi-Channel recording provides individual, discrete recordings for each input that are timecode accurate and ready to be imported directly into a multi-channel editing sequence. Users can rest asure thanks to Ki Protect, a feature that helps to ensure data integrity if a media drive is accidentally removed or loses power during recording.
