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 Pak media*. Ki Pro Ultra Plus even allows rollover to a second Pak for hours of uninterrupted multi-channel recording.
*Pak 2000 and Pak 1000 modules with an -R0 module designation and all Pak Media modules with -R1 designations supported for multi-channel recording.
Edit Ready, Independent Pro Res Files
Multi-Channel recording with Ki Pro Ultra Plus provides individual, discrete recordings for each input that are timecode accurate and ready to be imported directly into a multi-channel editing sequence. No additional conversion or software is required, just drag and drop the files directly from the Pak Media into your edit. The clip naming convention is yours to customize to suit your needs, but each multi-channel file is always appended with .1, .2, .3 or .4, making it very easy to track assets in post. New Multi-Channel independent file naming support with firmware v4.0 also allows an independent additional name to be added to each recorded file for further identifying specific information for the project's needs.
Continuous Record and Rollover, Even in Multi-Channel Mode.
Losing one or even several feeds during a multi-channel shoot can cause major sync issues during the editing process that can be lengthy to resolve, if they can be resolved at all. But Ki Pro Ultra Plus is designed so that as soon as a loss in signal is detected on any of the inputs, a color bars frame with the legend “Loss Of Signal” is recorded until the input is restored or the shoot ends. In this way, all multi-channel clips have the same timecode duration and will align perfectly within any NLE.
The editor then just simply cuts away from any recording that lost signal, without any heavy lifting to insert frames, or adjust audio to compensate. This function works with each input to Ki Pro Ultra Plus and will even function in Rollover mode, meaning that a loss of signal that spans separate media will pose no issues in editing, the time code of each file recorded being equal. New Forced Rollover support allows users to force a rollover recording to the second Pak port at any point, allowing quick extraction of the first Pak drive for fast transfer to editing environments, playout servers and more, while recording continues.
