AJA Advances Workflows With Ki Pro GO, Converters


Focused on improving the delivery workflows for multiformat content, AJA Video Systems introduced new and updated technologies at its Monday press conference. These included the Ki Pro GO multi-channel recorder/player, 14 openGear converter cards, two IP video transmitters and the Corvid 44 12G I/O card. Updates to the company’s FS-HDR, Desktop Software, HDR Image Analyzer and HELO were also announced.

Ki Pro GO is “a low-cost H.264 recording solution that supports several multichannel HD and SD video recording/playback configurations,” said AJA President Nick Rashby. The portable Ki Pro GO allows users to record up to four channels of HD and SD content from SDI and HDMI sources to USB media. Its genlock-free inputs eliminate the need to externally synchronize sources, while redundant recording provides multiple backups to protect recorded video.

Combining the capabilities of AJA’s Mini-Converters with openGear’s high-density architecture and support for DashBoard, AJA’s openGear converter cards allow
monitoring and control in broadcast and live event environments over a PC or local network on Windows, macOS or Linux.

AJA’s IPT-10G2-HDMI and IPT-10G2-SDI Mini-Converters — which are single-channel IP video transmitters — bridge traditional HDMI and 3G-SDI signals to SMPTE ST2110 for IP-based workflows.
