The flexible architecture of Ki Pro GO is designed for live production, sports, corporate events, training, houses of worship and more.
Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems, said: “People love to watch content on phones and tablets, and so making H.264 capture easy is attractive to video professionals because it simplifies distribution to a range of devices.
“Ki Pro GO is a low-cost H.264 recording solution to fulfil the need to support several multi-channel HD and SD video recording/playback configurations.”
Ki Pro GO combines the Ki Pro family’s intuitive design, flexibility and high quality with encoding/decoding of H.264 recording and playback in a compact 2RU, half-rack-width form factor. Users can easily record up to four channels of HD and SD content from SDI and HDMI sources to standard USB media.
Genlock-free recording eliminates the need to synchronise four input sources, while redundant recording provides multiple backups in the field to protect the recorded video.
It also comes with four 3G-SDI and four HDMI ports to ensure a high-quality source with standard cabling compatibility options. Video and audio input matrix channel mapping simplifies switching between physical inputs to the appropriate recording channel within the device’s UI from a mix of source inputs as needed.
HDMI multi-channel monitoring enables Ki Pro GO to display up to four channels of video as a matrix monitoring output on one HDMI monitor.
The Ki Pro Go is going for US$3,995 but will be available only this June.
