Chiba, Japan, Inter BEE Conference Hall 4, Booth #4206 (November 18th, 2015)AJA Video Systems today introduced Pak-Adapt-CFast, a low-cost media adapter that allows AJA CION, Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Quad users to record to CFast media.  

Pak-Adapt-CFast is a media caddy featuring the identical connector and rugged form factor as AJA’s Pak SSD drives, with a top slot for inserting CFast media. The unit is equipped with the same green LED light to indicate that the media is mounted. Pak-Adapt-CFast allows AJA’s CION production camera, Ki Pro Quad, and Ki Pro Ultra to use this popular media.

“We developed the Pak-Adapt-CFast in direct response to requests from our users. Many of them already have cameras and recording devices in their production kit that utilize CFast media,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “With Pak-Adapt-CFast, we offer up even more recording media options for CION, Ki Pro Quad and the new Ki Pro Ultra.”

The recommended media for use with Pak-Adapt-CFast is SanDisk Extreme Pro CFast 2.0. In addition, AJA will soon be releasing a list of qualified CFast media so that users wishing to utilize Pak-Adapt-CFast can have a better understanding of the performance they can expect.
