AJA Provides Die Hard Screening For US Troops

AJA video systems has revealed how it delivered its Ki Pro portable tapeless recorders to the editorial team of A Good Day to Die Hard to enable a preview screening for US troops stationed in Kuwait.
The latest in the Die Hard film franchise, A Good Day to Die Hard stars Bruce Willis returning in his role as John McClane.
Longtime AJA customer and editor of A Good Day to Die Hard, Dan Zimmerman traveled to Kuwait to set up the screening.
He said: "Ki Pro is so small, portable and flexible. I was able to travel to Kuwait with a single carry-on backpack with two Ki Pros, to power two simultaneous high quality screenings of our film for over 1100 troops.
"With one Ki Pro we were able to plug directly into a Barco projector and a Yamaha MC7 board and the picture and sound quality were both awesome. This was the easiest screening I’ve ever done. Anything else would have been much more complicated.
"I've been a professional editor for over ten years and am constantly testing and evaluating the latest gear, from editorial software to video cards to recorders and converters," he continued.
"Nothing works as easily or is as compatible with as wide a variety of file formats and workflows as AJA's video cards, recorders, I/O devices and converters. AJA products are as reliable in the edit bay as they are on the field, and they simply just work."
