By utilizing Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quality available, with manageable and affordable file sizes.
Multi-Channel HD Recording
run up to four camerasRecord 1, 2, 3 or 4-Channels of beautiful HD up to 1080p 50/60 in Apple ProRes simultaneously with Ki Pro Ultra 12G.
Simplify your multi-camera productions by running up to four cameras per Ki Pro Ultra 12G and save power, space, time and effort on set, in the studio and when setting up OB trucks. Ki Pro Ultra 12G even allows independent profile support per channel in Multi-Channel mode; for example, select high resolution Apple ProRes HQ for high quality finishing and use a second input to record Apple ProRes (Proxy) for an efficient editing pipeline.
Starting with input 1, add channels as needed in order when utilizing like raster size and frame rate, and record your HD Apple ProRes files on the same AJA Pak media*. Ki Pro Ultra 12G even allows rollover to a second Pak for hours of uninterrupted multi-channel recording.

4K, 12-bit Full Raster Workflows
Next gen recordingNext generation 4K/UltraHD 50/60p recording and playback are attainable all the way up to Apple ProRes XQ when using AJA Pak Media with Ki Pro Ultra 12G.
4K/UltraHD is supported through 12G-SDI, 4x 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0 or optional fiber inputs and outputs. Ki Pro Ultra 12G not only supports true 4K at 4096 x 2160p for digital cinema and high quality UltraHD for broadcast production, it also offers the color depth to match including HDR support.
Any shoot or project benefits from the fabulously rich colors and smooth gradations across the luminance and chroma range that 12-bit makes possible with full 4:4:4 support including Apple ProRes 4444 XQ up to 2K 50/60p.
VFX work benefits from Ki Pro Ultra 12G’s 12-bit support to captured Apple ProRes 444 files, resulting in clean green screen plates for easy and detailed post-production manipulation. With full HDMI 2.0, you can monitor it all from 4:2:2 YCbCr to full 4:4:4 RGB in 12-bit.
Edit Ready, Synched Files for Edit
Multi-Channel independent file naming supportMulti-Channel recording with Ki Pro Ultra 12G provides individual, discrete recordings for each input that are timecode accurate and ready to be imported directly into a multi-channel editing sequence. No additional conversion or software is required, just drag and drop the files directly from the Pak Media into your edit. The clip naming convention is yours to customize to suit your needs, but each multi-channel file is always appended with _1, _2, _3 or _4 matching the input, making it very easy to track assets in post.
Multi-Channel independent file naming support also allows an independent additional name to be added to each recorded file for further identifying specific information for the project's needs.
HDMI 2.0: One Cable, Multiple Formats
full hdmi supportFull HDMI 2.0 support on Ki Pro Ultra 12G offers deep color support all the way up to 4:4:4 12-bit RGB, perfect for rich color capture from affordable HDMI cameras and beautiful playback on the latest HDMI 2.0 displays.
A single cable can affordably transport both UltraHD or HD video and clean 24-bit 48 kHz 8-Channel audio to or from common HDMI 2.0 devices for a simple setup; perfect for independent producers, editors, ProAV, and anyone seeking to utilize the latest affordable capture and monitoring tools.
rich, deep coloursHDR or High Dynamic Range, provides the ability to display a wider and richer range of colors, much brighter whites, and much deeper, darker blacks than standard signals allow. This gives your imagery a more ‘dynamic’ look and allows for natural true to life colors to be communicated to your audience.
Ki Pro Ultra 12G provides this support for your 4K/UltraHD/HD HDR pipelines to HDMI and SDI compatible displays by generating HDR metadata in accordance with HDMI v2.0a/CTA-861.3 and SMPTE 352, which includes HDR 10 (PQ) and HLG for both input and output.
intuitive interfaceAnyone familiar with the operation of a tape deck will feel immediately comfortable when working with Ki Pro Ultra 12G.
Just like a traditional tape deck, Ki Pro Ultra 12G features straightforward and dedicated transport buttons - record, play, stop, rewind, fast forward - making the device easy to operate with minimal training time.
The current status of the system and key configuration information is clearly displayed on the beautiful built-in high resolution LCD screen. Additional operational information can be found in the STATUS menu which can be accessed even when recording or playing back.
The Ki Pro Ultra 12G operating system offers users a logical menu structure that is easy to navigate with menu parameters presented in clear and understandable language.
Remote Control, Configuration and File Transfers
advanced remote control and configurationIn a truck or a machine room, Ki Pro Ultra 12G is equipped for advanced remote control and configuration. With a standard Ethernet LAN connection to a host computer and any web browser, all Ki Pro Ultra 12G parameter settings, clip selection and transport controls can be controlled; no additional or special software installation is required on the host computer. Multiple Ki Pro Ultra12G units can even be controlled from a single web interface making Ki Pro Ultra 12G an ideal solution for multi-camera and synched recordings.
Ki Pro Ultra 12G's web UI also provides a simple way to transfer media files across the network for remote sharing when in DATA-LAN mode.
RS-422 control allows Ki Pro Ultra 12G to integrate easily with supported editing systems and external controllers allowing it to fulfill several of the functions of a traditional VTR. Supported NLEs can even perform assemble edits directly to the Ki Pro Ultra 12G.
Reliable Storage Media
super fast media changesKi Pro Ultra 12G captures directly to rugged and reliable AJA Pak SSD media. Pak Media is available in a variety of capacities to best suit the demands of your production.
Pak 2000 and Pak 1000 are the perfect companions for Ki Pro Ultra 12G offering 2TB or 1TB of fast SSD media for up to 4K recording at 60p in ProRes HQ. Pak 512 and Pak 256 models offer equal performance in smaller capacities when needed.
The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra 12G allow extremely fast media changes and rollover recording even for multi-channel recording, which allows a recording to start on one media module and seamlessly continue onto the second module once the first has reached capacity.
Infinite Record and Rollover
Multi-Channel ModeLosing one or even several feeds during a multi-channel shoot can cause major sync issues during the editing process that can be lengthy to resolve, if they can be resolved at all. But Ki Pro Ultra 12G is designed so that as soon as a loss in signal is detected on any of the inputs, a color bars frame with the legend “Loss Of Signal” is recorded until the input is restored or the shoot ends. In this way, all multi-channel clips have the same timecode duration and will align perfectly within any NLE.
The editor then just simply cuts away from any recording that lost signal, without any heavy lifting to insert frames, or adjust audio to compensate. This function works with each input to Ki Pro Ultra 12G and will even function in Rollover mode, meaning that a loss of signal that spans separate media will pose no issues in editing, the time code of each file recorded being equal.
exFAT and HFS+ Support
full flexibilityKi Pro Ultra 12G allows you to use the file system that suits your needs. Full flexibility is provided to format your recording media as either exFAT or HFS+ within Ki Pro Ultra 12G itself or from your desktop computer, ensuring wide OS compatibility. Pak media can also be ordered in either format for fast implementation upon arrival.
Upto 64 Channels!
64-Channels of AudioKi Pro Ultra 12G offers up to 16-Channels of audio support embedded over SDI or Fiber per input, bringing a total of 64-Channels of high quality recording when in multi-channel mode.
Flexible routing options mean that 8-Channel only outputs like HDMI, Analog and Digital carry options for selecting the 8-Channel group required. Monitoring via the headphone jack on the front of the unit is split into easy 2-Channel groupings by input for on-set checks.
Closed Captioning SupportIf you need to record or playout video with Closed Captioning embedded, Ki Pro Ultra 12G is fully compatible with your needs.
Ki Pro Ultra 12G recognizes CEA-708 within incoming SDI Inputs and encodes the Closed Captioning to your Apple ProRes recorded file.
Upon playback, you can utilize the Closed Captioning within a recorded file over Ki Pro Ultra 12G's SDI outputs.
