Grass Valley, Calif. - AJA Video Systems, a manufacturer of professional video interface and conversion solutions, released Ki Pro, a portable tapeless video device that records files to the Apple ProRes 422 codec directly from camera. AJA will be demonstrating Ki Pro at IBC 2009 from Sept. 11 through 15, 2009 at the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam in Hall 7, Stand F-11.
Ki Pro connects production and post with analog and digital connectivity. That is, virtually any video and audio source can be fed into Ki Pro to record pristine 10-bit ProRes 422 media that is then available to edit within Apple's Final Cut Studio, says a representative.
Ki Pro is designed to enable filmmakers, broadcasters, video professionals, and prosumers to skip the process of re-rendering to an editing codec by giving immediate access to full raster edit-ready Apple ProRes 422 files directly from camera. Ki Pro records hours of media to a removable storage module. The device is a small, portable unit that can sit on a table, in a bay or mounted between a camera and tripod. Ki Pro is also well suited to on-set monitoring, providing access to multiple display devices simultaneously.
Ki Pro is available now for $3995.
