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.
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.
4K and HD Monitoring
Ki Pro Ultra 12G provides full resolution outputs for 4K, UltraHD and HD over 12G-SDI, 3G-SDI, Fibre 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 both SDI Monitor output and HDMI out.
Up to 64-Channels of Audio
Ki Pro Ultra 12G offers up to 16-Channels of audio support embedded over SDI or Fibre 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 supports both Square Division Quad Split format and Two Sample Interleave offering a wide number of options to both record and playback 4K and UltraHD.
Set up is easy, with Ki Pro Ultra 12G sensing the format being delivered in its “Follow Input” mode.
Fibre and HD-BNC Connectivity
Ki Pro Ultra 12G’s fully integrated fibre inputs and outputs mean it can be integrated directly to a dedicated fibre network alongside many other fibre products. Fibre allows outgoing and incoming video signals to be transmitted as far as 10 km away.
