Capture Ki Pro ULTRA BACK

The AJA Ki Pro Ultra records to five quality levels
 of broadcast standard Apple ProRes codec including ProRes 4444. Such flexbility lets video professionals choose the balance of image fidelity and file size that’s right for each individual production as well as having the flexibility to record directly to native file formats that are understood by most major editing systems.

Footage is captured directly to rugged and reliable AJA own AJA Pak SSD media. Pak media is available in a variety of capacities from 256GB to 1TB geared to best suit the demands of just about every production. Pak1000 (1TB) is the perfect companion for Ki Pro Ultra offering 1TB of fast SSD media for up to 4K recording at 60p in ProRes HQ. Ki Pro Ultra also offers compatibility with Pak512 and Pak256 media, ideal for lower frame rate projetcs.


The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra allow extremely fast media changes and rollover recording, which allows a recording to start on one media module and seamlessly continue onto the second module once the first has reached capacity.

Pak media may also be used with the optional Pak Dock which features USB3 and Thunderbolt connectors for lightning-fast data transfers from and to your desktop or laptop.

MSRP for the UK is expected to be around £4,000. To get your pre-order give us a call at 0208 977 1222.
