AJA Video Systems announced AJA's Ki Pro Mini as the first recommended Apple ProRes solution for the newly released
RED EPIC camera.
"AJA's Ki Pro Mini is the first ProRes recorder that we've battle tested and are recommending for use with the RED EPIC," says Ted Schilowitz of RED. "I flew with it as the broadcast quality, 1080p offline video recorder while shooting 5K EPIC REDCODE RAW files in the Pictorvision nose mount of a copter this week and it worked like a charm. I know first hand of the high level of industry adoption of AJA gear based on its proven performance and their reputation for high quality professional gear, and the KiPro Mini is no exception. It worked solidly under the pressure of real high-end cinema shooting environments, where it really counts. We tested it, and loved it."
"AJA was first to market in 2009 with a professional ProRes camera recording device with the Ki Pro, and we now also have thousands of Ki Pro Minis in the field," says Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. "The RED EPIC packs a lot of power into a very small package; Ki Pro Mini is the perfect ProRes recording complement, connecting to the camera rig unobtrusively and without adding any significant weight."
Ki Pro Mini snaps right onto the back of the RED EPIC camera using the AJA Mini Mounting Plate with a standard V-Lock adapter. "While the EPIC shoots well beyond 1080p resolution, there are many production scenarios where recording a simultaneous 1080p feed is essential. Ki Pro Mini is perfect for these scenarios, it's small, light, and provides top quality ProRes which many have come to rely on for their TV quality deliverables," explains Schilowitz.
