Now available at the support section of http://www.aja.com is new version 2.0 firmware for the Ki Pro. New features include:
- 8 channel embedded audio support—choose between 2 channels or 8 channels of audio via embedded SDI
- Multi-unit Gang recording via the Web UI—use the web UI and ethernet connections to Ki Pro units on a common network to start and stop recordings
- Custom Clip Naming—allows users to define their own naming convention using the front panel UI or the web UI
- RS-422 support—allows interaction with some serial control devices and some non-linear editors
Note: AJA has specifically tested with JL Cooper and FutureVideo 9-pin serial controllers. Other controllers may also be used, but may have not yet been tested by AJA. AJA has specifically tested 9-pin serial control with Apple Final Cut Pro's Log and Capture and Edit to Tape for RS-422 compatibility. Other non-linear editors, such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Autodesk Smoke and Sony Vegas, do not yet fully support ingest/output control via RS-422 when used with Ki Pro. Future firmware updates to Ki Pro will continue to add support for additional non-linear editors when controlling Ki Pro via RS-422.
Please be sure to consult the Ki Pro Manual for detailed information about 2.0 features and configuration guidelines, as well as the Release Notes for this release. The updated manual is also included in the firmware download, or can be directly downloaded at the link below.
