Ki Pro Ultra is a next generation file based 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD video recorder. A player that supports edit ready Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR files in a range of video formats, frame rates up to 4K, and Avid DNxHD MXF files at HD resolutions.
Big on quality – but not on file size.
Ki Pro Ultra records 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD to five quality levels of Apple ProRes® including Apple ProRes 4444. This lets you choose the balance of image fidelity and file size that’s right for each individual production as well as having the flexibility to record directly to native file formats that are understood by most major editing systems.
Next generation UltraHD 60p and 4K 60p recording is attainable all the way up to Apple ProRes HQ when using AJA Pak 2000 or AJA PAK 1000 SSD media.
By utilizing Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quality available, with manageable and affordable file sizes.
Avid DNxHR Recording
New Ki Pro Ultra v3.0 firmware allows users to record 4K and UltraHD rasters with Avid codecs within a native .MXF wrapper, supporting Avid editors and native .MXF workflows with more flexible options.
Ki Pro Ultra Plus v3.0 offers Avid DNxHR codecs in an .MXF wrapper for the following formats:
- DNxHR HQX
- DNxHR SQ
- DNxHR LB
- (4K) 4096 x 2160p 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97
- (UltraHD) 3840 x 2160p 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97
exFAT and HFS+ Support
Ki Pro Ultra allows you to use the file system that suits your needs. Full flexibility is provided to format your recording media as either exFAT or HFS+ within Ki Pro Ultra itself or from your desktop computer, ensuring wide OS compatibility. Pak media for Ki Pro Ultra can also be ordered as pre formatted in either.
Ki Pro Ultra includes Ki Protect, a feature that helps to ensure data integrity if a media drive is accidentally removed or loses power during recording. The Ki Protect feature automatically pre-allocates recording space on the media drive for video, audio and timecode when the record button is pressed.
While recording, the file header is then continuously updated every time new data is written. That way, the only loss that should be incurred is the last few frames that were in transit to the media drive to be recorded when the operation was interrupted. Frames that are already recorded will be preserved and are recoverable, providing greater peace of mind on set and in the studio.
