    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. 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 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.

    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.
