About the AJA Video KIPRORACK

The AJA Ki Pro Rack has 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.

AJA Video KIPRORACK Features

  • 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
  • RS-422 Control: Ki Pro Rack features RS-422 control, enabling it to be easily integrated with editing systems, external controllers and even other tape decks and fulfill all the functions of a traditional VTR
  • Familiar controls and operation: Anyone familiar with the operation of a tape deck will feel immediately at home with Ki Pro Rack. Just like a traditional tape deck, Ki Pro Rack features straightforward dedicated Record, Play, Rewind and Fast-forward
  • Professional connections: The video and audio connections on the back of the Ki Pro Rack are the same type as found on traditional tape decks, allowing Ki Pro Rack to fit right into your current cabling and routing
  • Dual media drives: The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Rack allow extremely fast media changes - you can switch drives and start recording straight away, without having to wait to eject the first one
  • Ethernet file transfer: Because of its network connectivity, media can be copied to and from the Ki Pro Rack over the Ethernet connection. This allows for fast file transfers without the need to physically remove the media from the Ki Pro Rack
  • Integrated AJA hardware conversion: Ki Pro Rack has AJA's industry-leading conversion technology built in so you can perform high-quality up/down/cross conversion during recording or playback without having to use a second device
  • Remote configuration & control: Ki Pro Rack can be connected to your data network & accessed via a web browser from any network computer.
