AJA ships light tapeless recorder1 February 2011
AJA Video Systems is now shipping Ki Pro Mini, the smaller, lighter version of its portable tapeless recorder that captures to the Apple ProRes 422 codec directly from camera. With its miniature form factor and ability to mount easily to a range of digital cameras and accessories, Ki Pro Mini can capture high-quality 10-bit 4:2:2 files that are immediately ready for editing.
Ki Pro Mini bridges production and post, effectively eliminating log and capture. It supports SDI & HDMI cameras. Its key features include: 10-bit full-raster recording to Apple ProRes 422 SD and HD formats (including HQ, LT and Proxy); recording of SD/HD files from digital video cameras to Compact Flash (CF) cards; flexible control options and simple, plain-language file naming.
Ki Pro Mini is a key component in an Apple file-based production-to-post workflow, recording native Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files onto CF cards, which are formatted as HFS+ volumes that are instantly connected to a Mac computer via off-the-shelf CF card readers. It includes two CF card slots, one active and one standby, enabling users to switch from one card to the next at the push of a button for non-stop, run-and-gun recording.
“AJA Ki Pro is the smallest, simplest way to connect production and post, anywhere people want to shoot,” said AJA President Nick Rashby. “It’s smaller than some battery packs and mounts to virtually everything. And like all of the AJA products, Ki Pro Mini delivers unparalleled I/O quality.”
