Ki Pro Ultra is a next generation file based 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD video recorder and player with a built-in HD LCD monitor; supports edit ready Apple ProRes files in a range of video formats and frame rates up to 4K 60p, or Avid DNxHD MXF files at HD resolutions.
Ki Pro Ultra offers flexible input and output connectivity including 3G-SDI, HDMI and even fibre, for powerful and efficient large raster and high frame rate workflows.
Designed to be both portable with a built-in carry handle or rack-mountable with half rack wide 2RU high dimensions, Ki Pro Ultra suits a wide range of production and post environments.
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 utilising Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quality available, with manageable and affordable file sizes.
This provides a native MXF workflow for Avid pipelines, free of transcoding.

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.
Set up is easy, with Ki Pro Ultra sensing the format being delivered in its “Follow Input” mode. Ki Pro Ultra also allows you to select separate quad modes for both in and out, giving an additional conversion feature for when you need it.
The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra allow extremely fast media changes and rollover recording, which allows a recording to start on one media module and seamlessly continue onto the second module once the first has reached capacity.
Pak Media may also be used with the optional Pak Dock which features USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt™ connectors for lightning fast data transfers from and to your desktop or laptop.
