AJA Releases Ki Pro Ultra 12G v2.0

September 24, 2020
Grass Valley, CA (September 24, 2020) – AJA Video Systems has released new v2.0 firmware for Ki Pro Ultra 12G, a single-channel 4K/UltraHD recorder and player or four-channel HD recorder, featuring 12G-SDI connectivity for high bandwidth workflows. Ki Pro Ultra 12G v2.0 introduces new features targeted at streamlining high raster workflows with varied video input sources, including new input frame sync for genlock free recording, and 8K link VPID to power 8K/UltraHD2 workflows when four Ki Pro Ultra 12G devices are used in tandem in 12G- or 6G-SDI mode.
“Ki Pro Ultra 12G offers the latest 12G-SDI connectivity for 4K/Ultra HD, as well as powerful multi-channel HD recording,” stated Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems. “New v2.0 firmware includes several customer requested features, including genlock-free recording which is crucial for multi-channel camera inputs, as well as deeper support for the latest 8K workflows.”
Ki Pro Ultra 12G is a versatile capture solution for any production environment where high-quality, reliable recording is required, including remote productions, mobile trucks, live events and on set as the industry safely returns to work. New input frame sync introduced in Ki Pro Ultra 12G v2.0 removes genlock requirements for incoming video signals, ideal for sources without reference inputs or other production scenarios where genlock is not practical. Ki Pro Ultra 12G v2.0 also adds 8K Link ID support to accommodate 8K/UltraHD2 workflows when four Ki Pro Ultra 12G units are synced in tandem in 12G- or 6G-SDI mode. Targeted at simplifying high raster workflows, this feature enables a link identifier in the VPID for 12G- and 6G-SDI output signals to automatically indicate they are a segment of an 8K workflow. Additional Ki Pro Ultra 12G v2.0 feature updates include several key fixes for enhanced performance.
