AJA Video Systems has released Ki Pro, a portable tapeless video device that records files to the Apple ProRes 422 codec directly from a camera.
Ki Pro provides a new way of connecting production and post with its extensive analog and digital connectivity. Virtually any video and audio source can be fed into Ki Pro to record 10-bit ProRes 422 media that is then immediately available to edit within Apple's Final Cut Studio.
Ki Pro allows filmmakers, broadcasters, video professionals and prosumers to skip the process of rerendering to an editing codec by giving immediate access to full-raster, edit-ready Apple ProRes 422 files directly from a camera.
Ki Pro records hours of media to a removable storage module. The device is a small, portable unit that can sit on a table, in a bay or mounted between a camera and tripod.
