Las Vegas, NV, NAB Conference, Stand SL2416 (April 8, 2019)—AJA Video Systems today introduced the newest addition to its Ki Pro family, Ki Pro GO – a portable genlock free, multi-channel H.264 HD and SD redundant recorder/player. Ki Pro GO records pristine quality video to off-the-shelf USB media. The flexible architecture of Ki Pro GO is designed for live production, sports, corporate events, training, houses of worship and more.
“People love to watch content on phones and tablets, making easy H.264 capture attractive to video professionals because it simplifies distribution to a range of devices. Ki Pro GO introduces a low-cost, H.264 recording solution for this need that supports several multi-channel HD and SD video recording/playback configurations,” shared Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
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 synchronize four input sources, while redundant recording provides multiple back ups in the field to protect the recorded video. Four 3G-SDI and four HDMI ports ensure a high quality source with standard cabling compatibility options.
