Some early AJA news via Digi-Box: you can now save over £1000 on an Aja Ki Pro Ultra and £90 on Pak Dock and Kistor Dock – plus new firmware v2.2 for Ki Pro Ultra with Avid MXF support. 

Now more affordable than ever, Ki Pro Ultra is the premiere file-based 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD video recorder and player. Ki Pro Ultra v2.2 firmware offers Avid MXF support for HD workflows and is available as a free download here. The release adds recording and playback of DNxHD files with an OP1a profile within an MXF container for DNxHD HQX (220x), DNxHD SQ (145) and DNxHD LB (36) codecs. This provides a native MXF workflow for Avid pipelines free of transcoding.

Ki Pro Ultra features a built-in HD LCD monitor and supports edit-ready Apple ProRes files in a range of video formats and frame rates up to 4K 60p, or Avid DNxHD files at HD resolutions. Flexible input and output connectivity, including 3G-SDI, HDMI, and fibre, provides support for powerful, efficient large raster and high-frame-rate workflows.

Record 4K/UHD and 2K/HD sources to reliable and affordable AJA Pak SSD media, available in capacities up to 1TB. A twin-media bay drive enables extremely fast media changes and rollover recording. The Ki Pro Ultra has a wide range of connectivity with 3G-SDI, fibre and HDMI inputs and outputs, AES and analogue XLR balanced audio, LTC, RS232 and LAN.

The Pak Dock and KiStor docking stations provide both Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 connections for ultra-fast file transfers between either PC or Mac host computer and Pak modules. Works with all Pak media and Pak adapters – now with a £90 reduction in cost!
