AJA Video Systems has announced the Ki Pro Go2 multi-channel HD/SD recorder.

The portable 2RU device facilitates up to four channels of simultaneous H.265 (HEVC) or H.264 (AVC) recording to USB 3.0 drives or network storage with redundant recording and single-channel playback. It provides flexible connectivity, including four 3G-SDI and four HDMI inputs.

Setup and operation are simple with an HD display for precise monitoring; video monitoring and menu/status overlays with an on-screen keyboard; dedicated record, play, stop, rewind and fast-forward buttons; and a standard Ethernet LAN connection for remote configuration and control of the device over a network from any web browser using Ki Pro Go2’s intuitive web UI.

Integrated input-frame synchronizers ensure users don’t have to genlock incoming video signals, while high-quality de-interlacers on each input allow progressive recordings to be made from interlaced inputs. Multi-channel matrix monitoring makes it convenient to monitor multiple camera feeds on a single HDMI or SDI display. Flexible audio functionality supports the capture of up to two channels of embedded audio from 3G-SDI or HDMI inputs, or two channels of Analog Audio from XLR ports, each offering a selection of Line, Mic or +48V Phantom Power for level control. One of the device’s analog audio inputs can also act as a source for Longitudinal Time Code insert.

The solution supports a variety of off-the-shelf USB media. It also records in real time to network storage via its Ethernet connection, and FAT or ExFAT file systems are supported for cross-platform use when transferring files to workstations and servers. Multi-channel recording functionality ensures individual recordings for each input, so users can drag and drop files directly from a USB drive into their preferred creative software; “group recording” is also supported.

The AJA Ki Pro Go2 lists for $4,749 and will begin shipping in early Q3.
