Amsterdam, Netherlands, IBC Conference Stand 7.C25 (September 14, 2018)— AJA Video Systems today unveiled free new v4.0 firmware for the Ki Pro Ultra Plus ProRes/DNx recorder/player. Packed with new features, the update advances recording customization – supporting file naming, timecode super out controls, and audio channel mapping.  

Ki Pro Ultra Plus v4.0 Firmware highlights include:

  • Multi-Channel Independent File Naming: Add an additional independent name to each recorded file 
  • Forced Rollover: Option to push recording to second AJA Pak media slot at any time during capture
  • Moveable Timecode (TC): Assign the TC super out to one of six positions 
  • Analog Audio Mapping: Quickly and easily map channel pairs upon input as required without re-cabling 

“As production, post and ProAV pipelines grow more complex, we continue to look at how we can streamline customer workflows with updates like Ki Pro Ultra Plus v4.0; it includes a host of new features that enable greater recording customization and efficiency in the field,” said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
