Designed for professional use, Pak Media is high capacity Solid State Drive (SSD) encased in a protective housing with a rugged connection engineered to handle the rigors of repeated use in the field. Pak Media is available in multiple capacities from 256GB to 2TB to fit your needs.
Utilize the AJA Pak Dock (sold separately) to transfer your footage over Thunderbolt™ or USB 3.0.
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 256GB SSD storage module
Pak 512 $995 US MSRP 512GB SSD storage module
Pak 1000 $1495 US MSRP 1TB SSD storage module
Pak 2000 $1795 US MSRP 2TB SSD storage module
**Ki Pro Ultra Plus multi-channel recording requires either Pak 2000, Pak 1000 or Pak 512-R1 or
Pak 256 -R1 model iterations.
Pak drives are compatible with the Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Ultra Plus, the Ki Pro Quad, and the CION production camera.
The combination of these powerful devices and Pak storage creates an efficient workflow for capturing media as ProRes or DNx files and bringing it quickly and easily into the postproduction environment in a high quality file format that maintains manageable file sizes.
The Pak Dock is a high-speed Pak Media reader, with Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connections for fast transfer of media to and from a host computer.

Pak-Adapt-CFast allows you to use CFast media you provide with the CION production camera. Simply insert the CFast card into the Pak-Adapt-CFast and once the green LED is lit, your media is mounted and can be formatted. For long recording times, AJA recommends Pak 512 and Pak 1000 media. For 4K 60p recording Pak 1000 and Pak 2000 media is required. AJA cannot guarantee the performance of any other media.
Pak-Adapt-CFast requires qualified media to ensure you get the best results. Although most types of CFast media will mount, only qualified media will provide proven performance. AJA does not prevent the user from using unqualified media and as such does not recommend the usage of any other media than that listed below. AJA Video does not take any responsibility for any loss of data by using unqualified media.
