Product Description

Details

ProRes 422 and 444 Recording Big on quality - but not on file size
Ki Pro Ultra records 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 Pak1000 SSD media.

By utilizing Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quailty available, with manageable and affordable file sizes.

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 compatability. 

2SI (Two Sample Interleave)
Ki Pro Ultra supports both Square Division Quad Split format and Two Sample Interleave giving a wide number of options to both record and playback 4K and UltraHD.

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.

16-Channel Audio Support
Ki Pro Ultra provides full 16-Channel audio support embedded over SDI or Fiber. Flexible routing options mean that 8-Channel only outputs like HDMI, Analog and Digital carry options for selecting the 8-Channel group required.

Closed Caption Support
If you need to record or playout video with Closed Captioning embedded, Ki Pro Ultra is fully compatible with your needs.

Ki Pro Ultra recognizes CEA-708 within incoming SDI Inputs and encodes the Closed Captioning to your Apple ProRes recorded file. Upon playback, you can utilize the Closed Captioning within a recorded file over Ki Pro Ultra's 4 x 3G-SDI outputs.
