AJA Video Systems has released V4.0 firmware for its Ki Pro GO multi-channel H.264 recorder. Besides delivering enhanced playback and control functionality to give users more flexibility in the field, the Ki Pro GO now includes third-party file playback support, alongside a host of new settings improvements that help ensure more seamless setup and operation across production, post, and pro AV environments, says AJA.
Users of Ki Pro GO can intuitively playback .mp4 files originating from supported third-party applications, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid Media Composer and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve.
Ki Pro GO also now provides the ability to set each device to generate 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 B-frames individually on each channel for smaller file sizes. A new alarm functionality makes it easy to clear outdated alerts after errors are corrected, and an updated REST API (application programming interface) enables remote device shut-off.
Nick Rashby, President of AJA, said, “Modern production and pro AV environments demand flexibility in the field, especially when recording multiple simultaneous HD and SD video feeds, and we designed Ki Pro GO with this in mind.
“Users of this recorder have expressed a desire to play out H.264 files generated within their NLE applications on Ki Pro GO, which this update enables.
“Ki Pro GO v4.0 firmware is an extension of our work, and continued commitment to helping professionals get the most out of their gear.”
