AJA KI Pro Rack Recorder

The power of AJA KI Pro Rack Recorder is the perfect fit for your file based workflow.With a wealth of professional connections including SDI and HDMI, AJA KI Pro Rack Recorder will fit right into your existing cabling and routing system. Ki Pro Rack also features AJA’s industry leading conversion technology, enabling you to perform broadcast quality up, down, cross-conversion during recording or playback without the need for additional conversion hardware.

Transition to File Based Workflows

For video facilities transitioning from tape to file based workflows for recording and playback, Ki Pro Rack offers high quality, ‘ready-to-edit’ file capture, designed to get material from source to editorial as quickly as possible.

With a wealth of professional connections, Ki Pro Rack will fit right into your existing cabling and routing system and record 10-bit Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD files direct to removable hard disk or SSD Storage Modules, eliminating the need for time-consuming logging and capturing. The files can be used in most editing systems without the need for additional transcoding or importing processes.

Unify Formats - Speed Workflows

AJA’s high quality up, down, cross-conversion makes it easy to unify SD, 720p, and 1080i and create a single desired format for your project. The multitude of video and audio connections such as SDI, HDMI and analog make integrating Ki Pro Rack with other production equipment easy.

RS-422 Control

RS-422 control allows Ki Pro Rack 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 Rack.

Ki Pro Rack’s RS-422 control can also be used to link a traditional VTR with Ki Pro Rack for direct editing control. Use the editing controls on properly equipped VTRs to control Ki Pro Rack for machine to machine transfer of video and audio. This allows tape footage to be captured directly as files on Ki Pro Rack without the need for a separate edit controller.

10-bit, Full Raster Recording

Big on quality – but not on file size. Recording 10-bit, full raster files, Ki Pro Rack gives you high quality images that easily stand up to post processing requirements – and client scrutiny.

Compared to 8-bit recording devices, 10-bit 4:2:2 recording (when supported by the codec) provides better quantization, giving a superior representation of the original scene and allowing for more flexibility in postproduction when adjusting color and balance.

By utilizing efficient ProRes and DNxHD codecs, file sizes are kept in check so you won’t need to blow your production budget on extra storage.
