AJA Releases v2.0 Firmware For Ki Pro Ultra

News Image
AJA Video Systems has released v2.0 firmware for Ki Pro Ultra. The firmware adds Avid DNxHD support to the portable file-based 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD video recorder and playback device.

Available as a free software download, Ki Pro Ultra v2.0 allows users to record and playback Avid DNxHD .mov files, expanding production workflows. The software supports:

Avid DNxHD codecs: DNxHD HQX (220x), DNxHD SQ (145), and DNxHD LB (36)

Video frame rates: 1080p 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97; 1080i 25, 29.97; 1080PsF 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97; and 720p 50, 59.94.

Ki Pro Ultra is a file-based 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD video recorder and player with a built-in LCD monitor. The device can capture edit-ready Apple ProRes files in a range of video formats and frame rates up to 4K 60p, as well as new Avid DNxHD file support. Ki Pro Ultra offers flexible input and output connectivity including 3G-SDI, HDMI and even Fiber for large-raster and high frame rate workflows. Designed to be portable with a built-in handle, or rack mountable with half-rack wide 2RU dimensions, Ki Pro Ultra suits a range of production and post environments.

Additionally, Ki Pro Ultra, Ki Pro Rack and Ki Pro Quad all now include Ki Protect, a feature that helps ensure data integrity if a media drive is accidentally removed, or loses power during recording. Ki Protect automatically pre-allocates recording space on the media drive for video, audio and timecode when the record button is pressed. While recording, the file header is continuously updated every time new data is written, reducing any potential data loss if operations are interrupted. Frames already recorded will be preserved and are recoverable.

Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems, said: "This latest free firmware release ensures compatibility between files recorded by Ki Pro Ultra, Ki Pro Rack and Ki Pro Mini products for Avid workflows, offering customers expanded flexibility and support across video and audio production workflows."

Ki Pro Ultra v2.0 firmware is available as a free download here.
