AJA Releases Ki Pro® Ultra
AJA introduces the Ki Pro Ultra – a next generation file-based 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD video recorder and player with a built-in HD LCD monitor. Ki Pro Ultra is capable of capturing edit-ready 4K (4096 x 2160), UltraHD (3840 x 2160), 2K (2048 x 1080) and HD (1920 x 1080) Apple ProRes files. Ki Pro Ultra also supports a range of video formats and frame rates up to 4K 60p, and offers flexible input and output connectivity – including 3G-SDI, Fiber and HDMI – for powerful and efficient large-raster and high-frame rate workflows.
AJA Video Systems have released three new models to its range of openGear-compatible video and audio rackframe cards, supporting single channel SDI-to-Fiber and Fiber-to-SDI conversion. The new openGear-compatible cards from AJA include the OG-FIBER-TR, OG-FIBER-T, and OG-FIBER-R. openGear is an open-architecture, modular frame system designed by Ross Video and supported by a diverse range of terminal equipment manufacturers.
The Mini-Converters give users additional options for extending SDI signals and easily incorporating computer files into video production. Key features of these new Mini-Converters include:
- HB-T-SDI and HB-R-SDI extend 3G-SDI signals over Ethernet cable, utilizing the industry standard HDBaseT protocol. Bi-directional IR and RS-232 for device control is also supported, making these Mini-Converters ideal in a variety of scenarios including: fixed installation AV, digital signage, live events, post production, network, studio environments and on set. These can also be mixed and matched with AJA’s HDMI-based HDBaseT Mini-Converters, allowing customized video I/O on either end of the Ethernet connection.
- ROI-HDMI offers real time region-of-interest scaling and SDI video output from HDMI computer outputs, allowing users to properly incorporate computer signals into the video world without sacrificing budget or space. Users interactively select a region-of-interest on screen from the incoming HDMI signal and control how that region is scaled to the output resolution using AJA's scaling algorithms for a high-quality image. ROI-HDMI joins the growing family of AJA ROI converters, which also offer DVI and DisplayPort connections.
- HD10MD4 is a miniature digital downconverter for converting HD-SDI video to standard definition SDI and analog component/composite video. The HD10MD4 uses a full 10-bit data path and multi-point interpolation to produce broadcast quality downconverted video. In addition, the HD10MD4 converts either 1080p24 or 1080p24sf to 59.94 Hz output video using the standard 3:2 pulldown technique. The output can be formatted for either 4:3 or 16:9 standard definition monitors. Four-channel input embedded HD-SDI audio is passed to the SDI output. A mini-USB jack allows configuration and control from the free Mini-Config application for Mac or PC.
FS3 4K Upconverter
The new FS3 combines AJA’s industry-proven frame synchronization with high-quality 4K up-conversion technology to seamlessly integrate SD and HD signals into 4K workflows. AJA’s adaptive scaling algorithms, paired with our well-known conversion technology ensures your up-converted images will have the maximum quality possible. Input SD or HD resolution SDI via BNC or Fiber and send up-converted 4K/UHD to multiple BNC and Fiber outputs simultaneously. The FS3 can also operate as an SD or HD frame synchronizer.
FS3 also includes the industry-proven features included in AJA frame synchronizers such as RGB color correction, region of interest scaling, extensive audio controls and routing, web UI control, GPI triggers and more.
