AJA Ki Pro Support

AJA VideoSystems, a manufacturer of professional video interface and conversion solutions, announced that its Ki Pro portable digital disk recorder has been endorsed by top camera manufacturers, including ARRI, Canon, and RED.
Ki Pro records files to the Apple ProRes codec directly from camera, enabling filmmakers, broadcasters, video professionals, and prosumers to skip the process of re-rendering to an editing codec by giving immediate access to 10-bit full raster, edit-ready ProRes files.
Ki Pro was introduced during NAB, and is on display at AJA Booth SL2513.
"We are really excited about the potential of Ki Pro to streamline decisionmaking on-set and in postproduction. Coupled with the Full HD output of the ARRIFLEX D-21 camera, the Ki Pro provides direct transfer to a ready toedit format. Using Ki Pro with an Apple Final Cut Pro workstation on set, the production team can have instantaneous real time playback for takeselection," says Adrian Widera, key account TV International, ARRI.
