Post-production redefined...during production.

Everyone from broadcasters to indie filmmakers can probably agree on one thing: the possible choices for image acquisition are daunting. Different cameras, different formats, different recording media and different compression schemes. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to simplify acquisition so that virtually any camera, digital or analog, could record the same format and resolution? Enter the AJA Ki Pro.

The AJA Ki Pro is a tapeless video recording device that records high-quality Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files onto computer-friendly media. Because it features SD/HD-SDI, HDMI, and analog inputs, you can interface with virtually any type of camera you might own or rent. Enjoy monitoring flexibility through Ki Pro's numerous simultaneous outputs, connecting to both professional and consumer monitors.

Ki Pro is portable and rugged; designed for real production environments. With the optional exo-skeleton it can sit below your camera-out of the way of your battery adapters, wireless mics and other accessories. Integration with your other production gear is seamless.

Ki Pro is intuitive to operate. Alongside the camera, the familiar VTR-like buttons provide immediate controls for basic operation. From a distance, use a web browser via ethernet or WiFi to control operations from a laptop or iPhone.

A revolution in production and post
Eliminate the cost and inconvenience of logging and capturing footage. Ki Pro produces Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files that are ready for immediate use within Final Cut Studio. Simply connect the media to a host computer and begin editing. Unify SD, 720 and 1080 cameras and formats with one superior 10-bit full-raster codec-Apple ProRes 422. Ki Pro features cross-conversion so you can have a 720p camera produce a 1080i recording to match your other camera... or vice versa. And if you've got high-quality SD cameras, Ki Pro can even help you extend their use since it also up-converts SD camera signals to HD recordings.

Ki Pro in the field
Ki Pro is portable and rugged; designed for a variety of production environments. Powered through an industry standard 4-pin XLR, you have flexible AC and battery options. An optional exo-skeleton can be used with your camera and tripod-complete with sliding baseplate and slots for 15mm rods.

Ki Pro connects
Capture the full quality of your camera by tapping the direct uncompressed camera outputs. Connect any digital camera or VTR via component analog, SDI or HDMI to Ki Pro. Balanced and unbalanced audio connectors, LTC input/output, and even LANC, are provided. By bypassing tape or recordable media compression, Ki pro maintains the best possible image quality your camera produces.

Ki Pro and Final Cut Studio
From acquisition to delivery, use the codec at the core of Apple's Final Cut Studio suite of applications. Ki Pro supports an Apple file-based workflow by recording standard Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files on industry standard media. Record to removable 34mm ExpressCards, or a removable HDD Storage Module containing a hard disk drive (standard) or an optional SSD Storage Module with a solid state disk. When removed, the Storage Module functions as a standard bus-powered FireWire 800 drive. If bus power is not available, the Storage Module has a standard DC power connector for a user supplied AC power adapter.

Comments about AJA Video Ki Pro HD Video Recorder:

I am very impressed with the robust Quicktime codecs and overall quality of the unit. Plenty of configuration options for up and down scaling. My only real complaint is how Mac-centric the file transfer and drive format is. PC based workflow required a separate drive dock and a MAC drive emulator just to pull the capture files. Other than that - I love this thing.
