Hard drive recorder with 2 x 750GB drives, exoskeleton


The AJA Ki Pro is a tapeless video recording device that records high-quality Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files onto computer-friendly media. Because it features SD/HD-SDI, HDMI, and analog inputs, you can interface with virtually any type of camera you might own or rent.

Ki Pro is portable and rugged; designed for real production environments. It can sit below your camera-out of the way of your battery adapters, wireless mics and other accessories. Integration with your other production gear is seamless.

Ki Pro is intuitive to operate. Alongside the camera, the familiar VTR-like buttons provide immediate controls for basic operation. From a distance, use a web browser via ethernet or WiFi to control operations from a laptop or iPhone.

Hardware up-conversion - 10-bit Anamorphic: full-screen
Pillar box 4:3: results in a 4:3 image in center of screen with black sidebars
Zoom 14:9: results in a 4:3 image zoomed slightly to fill a 14:9 image with black side bars
Zoom Letterbox: image zoomed to fill screen
Zoom Wide: combination of zoom and horizontal stretch to fill 16:9 screen; this setting can introduce a small aspect ratio change
Hardware down-conversion - 10-bit Anamorphic: full-screen
Letterbox: image is reduced with black top and bottom added to image area with the aspect ratio preserved
Crop: image is cropped to fit new screen size
Hardware cross-conversion - 10-bit 1080i to 720P
720P to 1080i
720P to 1080PsF
SD to SD aspect ratio conversion Letterbox: transforms SD anamorphic to a letterboxed image.
H Crop: produces a horiztonally stretched effect on the image; transforms anamorphic SD to full frame.
SD Pillarbox: produces image in screen center with black borders on left and right sides and an anamorphized image in the center.
V Crop; transforms SD letterbox material to an anamorphic image.
