Just like a traditional tape deck, Ki Pro Ultra 12G features straightforward and dedicated transport buttons - record, play, stop, rewind, fast forward - making the device easy to operate with minimal training time.

The current status of the system and key configuration information is clearly displayed on the beautiful built-in high resolution LCD screen. Additional operational information can be found in the STATUS menu which can be accessed even when recording or playing back.

The Ki Pro Ultra 12G operating system offers users a logical menu structure that is easy to navigate with menu parameters presented in clear and understandable language.

 

Remote Control, Configuration and File Transfers

In a truck or a machine room, Ki Pro Ultra 12G is equipped for advanced remote control and configuration. With a standard Ethernet LAN connection to a host computer and any web browser, all Ki Pro Ultra 12G parameter settings, clip selection, and transport controls can be controlled; no additional or special software installation is required on the host computer.

Multiple Ki Pro Ultra12G units can even be controlled from a single web interface making Ki Pro Ultra 12G an ideal solution for multi-camera and synched recordings.

Ki Pro Ultra 12G's web UI also provides a simple way to transfer media files across the network for remote sharing when in DATA-LAN mode.

RS-422 control allows Ki Pro Ultra 12G to integrate easily with supported editing systems and external controllers allowing it to fulfill several of the functions of a traditional VTR. Supported NLEs can even perform assemble edits directly to the Ki Pro Ultra 12G. 

Reliable Storage Media

Ki Pro Ultra 12G captures directly to rugged and reliable AJA Pak SSD media. Pak Media is available in a variety of capacities to best suit the demands of your production.

Pak 2000 and Pak 1000 are the perfect companions for Ki Pro Ultra 12G offering 2TB or 1TB of fast SSD media for up to 4K recording at 60p in ProRes HQ. Pak 512 and Pak 256 models offer equal performance in smaller capacities when needed.

The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra 12G allow extremely fast media changes and rollover recording even for multi-channel recording, which allows a recording to start on one media module and seamlessly continue onto the second module once the first has reached capacity.

Pak Media may also be used with the optional Pak Dock which features USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt™ connectors for lightning fast data transfers from and to your desktop or laptop.

    Pak Products     

exFAT and HFS+ Support

Ki Pro Ultra 12G allows you to use the file system that suits your needs. Full flexibility is provided to format your recording media as either exFAT or HFS+ within Ki Pro Ultra 12G itself or from your desktop computer, ensuring wide OS compatibility. Pak media can also be ordered in either format for fast implementation upon arrival.

Infinite Record
and Rollover, Even in
Multi-Channel Mode      

Losing one or even several feeds during a multi-channel shoot can cause major sync issues during the editing process that can be lengthy to resolve if they can be resolved at all. But Ki Pro Ultra 12G is designed so that as soon as a loss in signal is detected on any of the inputs, a color bars frame with the legend “Loss Of Signal” is recorded until the input is restored or the shoot ends. In this way, all multi-channel clips have the same timecode duration and will align perfectly within any NLE. The editor then just simply cuts away from any recording that lost signal, without any heavy lifting to insert frames, or adjust audio to compensate. This function works with each input to Ki Pro Ultra 12G and will even function in Rollover mode, meaning that a loss of signal that spans separate media will pose no issues in editing, the time code of each file recorded being equal.

Forced Rollover support allows users to force a rollover recording to the second Pak port at any point, allowing quick extraction of the first Pak drive for fast transfer to editing environments, playout servers, and more, while recording continues.

Infinite Record allows continuous recording and rollover from Pak Drive to Pak Drive for a variety of needs including multi-day sporting events, conferences, security needs, and much more.

 

Ki Protect

Ki Pro Ultra 12G includes Ki Protect, a feature that helps to ensure data integrity if a media drive is accidentally removed or loses power during recording. The Ki Protect feature 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 then continuously updated every time new data is written. That way, the only loss that should be incurred is the last few frames that were in transit to the media drive to be recorded when the operation was interrupted. Frames that are already recorded will be preserved and are recoverable, providing greater peace of mind on set and in the studio, essential for multi-channel recording.

 

High Resolution LCD with Onscreen Intuitive UI 

Ki Pro Ultra 12G features a beautiful high resolution HD display for pristine monitoring of your material and serves as your interface to Ki Pro's familiar and intuitive menu system. The detailed overlay UI includes onscreen keyboard functionality and a clear view of the powerful yet simple to operate UI, all pristinely presented on the 4.8” 720p LCD display.

The large LCD provides detailed playback and monitoring perfect for onset use, the OB truck, helicopter, or studio and it’s transparent menu overlays can be set at just the level the user prefers. Ki Pro Ultra 12G offers control over brightness of the display for flexible control to suit your working environment. 

 

4K and HD Monitoring

Ki Pro Ultra 12G provides full resolution outputs for 4K, UltraHD and HD over 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, FIber and HDMI, including the latest affordable UltraHD monitors using HDMI for on-set quality checks. An additional dedicated 2K and HD-SDI monitor output can be fed to any affordable and existing HD-SDI display.

During Multi-Channel recording, the user can select to send either a single source or a Multi-Matrix of all four sources to the 3G-SDI monitor and HDMI outputs in any combination desired.

Enhanced Super Out offers TC, Media remaining and up to 8-channels of VU audio metering on the SDI Monitor output.

Up to 64-Channels of Audio 

Ki Pro Ultra 12G offers up to 16-Channels of audio support embedded over SDI or Fiber per input, bringing a total of 64-Channels of high quality recording when in multi-channel mode. Flexible routing options mean that 8-Channel only outputs like HDMI, Analog and Digital carry options for selecting the 8-Channel group required. Monitoring via the headphone jack on the front of the unit is split into easy 2-Channel groupings by input for on-set checks.

Multi-Channel Audio monitoring on the built-in display and over SDI and HDMI Monitoring out, allows the display of 8 channels of selected embedded audio in SIngle Channel recording or 2 channels per source when in Multi-Channel recordings.

Closed Captioning Support

If you need to record or playout video with Closed Captioning embedded, Ki Pro Ultra 12G is fully compatible with your needs.

Ki Pro Ultra 12G recognizes CEA-708 within incoming SDI Inputs and encodes the Closed Captioning to your Apple ProRes recorded file. Upon playback, you can utilize the Closed Captioning within a recorded file over Ki Pro Ultra 12G's SDI outputs.

 


2SI (Two Sample Interleave)

Ki Pro Ultra 12G lets you record edit-friendly Apple ProRes®, Avid DNxHR and Avid DNxHD files directly to removable AJA Pak SSD Media. Once removed from the Ki Pro Ultra Plus 12G, the Pak can be inserted into the AJA Pak Dock which connects directly to your computer via Thunderbolt™ or USB 3.0, allowing you to rapidly transfer files that are ready for use immediately in your non-linear editing system.

Pak Media

File based recording means your files are your master copy - something you don't want to leave to chance.

Pak Media uses a solid metal housing to protect the internal SSD drive from the bumps and bounces of field use, ensuring your media is secure.

The reinforced connector is engineered for repeated insertion and removal cycles, unlike the connector built into SSD drives, which is designed primarily to be inserted into a computer and rarely removed.

There are four Pak Media sizes available offering a balance between price and long recording needs and you may order the media as preformatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for fast deployment upon arrival.

Pak Media options**:

Pak 256 $495 US MSRP

Pak 512 $995 US MSRP

Pak 1000 $1495 US MSRP

Pak 2000 $1795 US MSRP

**Ki Pro Ultra Plus multi-channel recording requires either Pak 2000, PAK 1000 or Pak 512-R1 or
Pak 256 -R1 model iterations.
