The AJA Ki Pro Rack is designed for video facilities transitioning from tape to file-based workflows for recording and playback, offering high-quality ready-to-edit file capture that's designed to get material from source to editorial quickly.

With a wealth of professional connections, the Ki Pro Rack will fit right into your existing cabling and routing system without the need for special converters, and record 10-bit Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD files direct to removable hard disk or SSD Storage Modules, eliminating the need for logging and capturing. The files can be used in most editing systems without the need for additional
transcoding or importing processes. Like the Ki Pro, the Ki Pro Rack features AJA's conversion technology, which enables you to perform broadcast-quality up/down/cross conversion during recording or playback without the need for additional conversion hardware.

Anyone familiar with operating a tape deck will feel at home with Ki Pro Rack's tactile controls, while the flat onscreen menu structure ensures quick setup and a rapid learning curve. The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Rack allow for extremely fast media changes - you can switch drives and start recording straight away, without having to wait to eject the first one. Because of its network connectivity, media can be copied to and from Ki Pro rack over an Ethernet connection, allowing fast file transfers without the need to physically remove the storage media.

In larger facilities, this cuts down on the number of people that have to enter the machine room and minimizes the risk of unintentional interference with equipment. Like all other Ki Pros, multiple Ki Pro Racks can be networked together for control via a single interface.
