Grass Valley, CA (April 13, 2017) — AJA Video Systems today released Ki Pro Ultra v2.2 firmware featuring Avid MXF support for HD workflows. Ki Pro Ultra v2.2 is available now as a free download and expands production workflows by adding MXF with OP1a support for DNxHD encoded files to the portable file-based 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD video recorder and playback device.
Building on AJA’s Ki Pro Ultra v2.1 release – which integrated support for new frame rates for Avid DNxHD, including 1080p 50 and 59.94, and compatibility for exported ProRes files from Apple Final Cut Pro v10.3 – Ki Pro Ultra v2.2 now also supports:
Avid DNxHD codecs within an OP1a MXF container:
-- DNxHD HQX (220x)
-- DNxHD SQ (145)
-- DNxHD LB (36)
“We’re committed to bringing our customers advanced flexibility and compatibility across production workflows, and this new firmware release, with support for Avid MXF, delivers on that promise,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
