    AJA's Ki Pro Rack satisfies the broadcast video requirement for a compact, 1 RU rack-mounted digital video recorder designed for creating "ready-to-edit" professional digital video files. Supporting a file-based workflow, Ki Pro Rack records Apple ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD files on industry-standard media. Features include analog and digital audio video I/O and recording to 2x removable SATA storage modules. When removed, the storage modules function as standard FireWire 800 drives. With Ki Pro Rack you can acquire video using the same codecs that you use for editing-Apple ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD. Ki Pro Rack supports all four types of Apple ProRes 422 (including HQ, LT and Proxy) as well as Avid DNxHD 220x, Avid DNxHD 145 and for 1080p formats, Avid DNxHD 36. Ki Pro Rack simplifies the link between production and post by acquiring on the best codecs for use with Apple Final Cut Pro X or Avid Media Composer from virtually any SDI or HDMI camera, regardless of format.

    With its extensive analog and digital connectivity, virtually any video and audio source can feed into Ki Pro Rack, and 10-bit realtime up/down/cross conversion, allows you to record in the format you want to edit and deliver. Internally, Ki Pro Rack natively supports the Apple ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD codecs in hardware, allowing realtime capture directly to QuickTime files. In fact, while the camera is recording to its own tape or file-based memory, Ki Pro Rack can simultaneously capture the media as ProRes or DNxHD so it's instantly ready to edit when the removable storage module is connected to a computer. With this kind of flexibility, you can save time, steps, and get your project done quicker and with the highest quality. Like AJA's famous KONA and other Ki Pro products, Ki Pro Rack offers unparalleled connectivity.

    Within its 1 RU form factor, Ki Pro Rack offers SD/HD analog I/O, SD/HD digital I/O, HDMI I/O, two channels of balanced analog audio I/O, RS-422 machine control, and LTC timecode in/out. Control options are also varied and flexible. An Ethernet 10/100/1000 LAN connection via an RJ45 connector allows remote control and configuration from a Mac or PC web browser.

    Updated Software
    Ki Pro Rack v6.5 firmware includes several new improvements from DNxHD compatibility with Ki Pro Ultra Avid DNxHD files to additional audio channel options, gang control support across the Ki Pro family, an updated WebUI and more.
