Ki Pro Ultra Plus is a Multi-Channel Apple ProRes recorder offering up to 4- Channels of simultaneous HD recording, or in Single-Channel mode a 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD Apple ProRes® or Avid DNxHD® MXF recorder and player supporting the latest connectivity including 3G-SDI, Fiber and HDMI 2.0, as well as large raster high frame rate workflows, including 4K 60p. 

Designed to be both portable with a built-in carry handle or rackmountable with half rack wide 2RU high dimensions, Ki Pro Ultra Plus suits a wide range of production and post environments.

Multi-Channel HD Recording

Record 1, 2, 3 or 4-Channels of beautiful HD up to 1080p 50/60 in Apple ProRes simultaneously with Ki Pro Ultra Plus.

Simplify your multi-camera productions by running up to four cameras per Ki Pro Ultra Plus and save power, space, time and effort on set,
in the studio and when setting up OB trucks.

Ki Pro Ultra Plus even allows independent profile support per channel in Multi- Channel mode; select high resolution Apple ProRes HQ for high quality finishing and use a second input to record Apple ProRes (Proxy) for an efficient editing pipeline.

Starting with input 1, add channels as needed in order when utilizing like raster size and frame rate, and record your HD Apple ProRes files on the same AJA Pak1000 media. Ki Pro Ultra Plus even allows rollover to a second Pak1000 for hours of uninterrupted multi-channel recording.

Ki Protect

Ki Pro Ultra Plus 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 studo, essential for multi-channel recording.

HDMI 2.0: Colorful Simplicity

Full HDMI 2.0 support on Ki Pro Ultra Plus offers deep color support all the way up to 4:4:4 12-bit RGB, perfect for rich color capture from affordable HDMI cameras and beautiful playback on the latest HDMI 2.0 displays. 

A single cable can affordably transport both UltraHD or HD video and clean 24-bit 48hz 8-Channel audio to or from common HDMI 2.0 devices for a simple setup; perfect for independent producers, editors, ProAV,
and anyone seeking to utilize the latest affordable capture and monitoring tools.

4K, 12-bit Full Raster Workflows for Professionals

Next generation 4K/UltraHD 50/60p recording and playback are attainable all the way up to Apple ProRes HQ when using AJA Pak1000 SSD media with Ki Pro Ultra Plus.

4K/UltraHD is supported through 4x 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 or optional Fiber inputs and outputs.

Ki Pro Ultra Plus not only supports true 4K at 4096 x 2160p for digital cinema and high quality UltraHD for broadcast production, it also offers the color depth to match.

Any shoot or project benefits from the fabulously rich colors and smooth gradations across the luminance and chroma range that 12-bit makes possible with full 4:4:4 support including Apple ProRes 4444 XQ.

VFX work benefits from Ki Pro Ultra Plus’ 12-bit support on 4x 3G-SDI input to captured Apple ProRes 444 files, resulting in clean green screen plates across the 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD raster landscape for easy and detailed postproduction manipulation. With full HDMI 2.0, you can monitor
it all from 4:2:2 YCbCr to full 4:4:4 RG in 12-bit. 

Big on quality - but not on file size.

Ki Pro Ultra Plus records 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD to six quality levels
 of Apple ProRes® including Apple ProRes 4444 XQ. This lets you choose the balance of image fidelity and file size that's right for each individual production as well as having the flexibility to record directly to native file formats that are understood by most major editing systems.

Next generation UltraHD 60p and 4K 60p recording is attainable all the way up to Apple ProRes HQ when using
AJA Pak1000 SSD media.

By utilizing Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quailty available, with manageable and affordable

Reliable Storage Media

Ki Pro Ultra Plus 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.

Pak1000 is the perfect companion for Ki Pro Ultra Plus offering 1TB of fast SSD media for up to 4K recording at 60p in ProRes HQ and is required for Multi-Channel HD capture. Pak512 and Pak256 media is ideal for lower frame rate projects.

The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra Plus 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 USB3 and Thunderbolt™ connectors for lightning-fast data transfers from and to your desktop or laptop.
