AJA Ships Ki Pro Mini Portable Flash Disk Recorder

With its miniature form factor and ability to mount to a range of digital cameras and accessories, Ki Pro Mini makes for the smallest camera and recorder package available for the capture of 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, says a company representative. It supports SDI and 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
Mac OS X friendly media and native QuickTime files˜no log-and-capture required
Professional video connectivity through SD/HD-SDI and HDMI I/O
2 channels of balanced XLR audio with switch selectable line/mic levels
8 channels of embedded digital audio over SDI and HDMI
Flexible control options including familiar front panel and web browser interfaces
Simple, plain-language file naming
Optional Ki Pro Mini Mounting Plates that attach to hot shoes, battery plates and virtually any other accessory bracket
Optional Mini Stand for convenient desktop operation
Aircraft-grade aluminum construction that delivers light weight and maximum ruggedness

Ki Pro Mini is a key component in a streamlined 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.

US MSRP for Ki Pro Mini is $1995.
