AJA Video Systems brings you the Ki Pro Quad allowing efficient management of your 4K/Quad HD/2K/HD workflow with the efficiencies of Apple ProRes and the flexibility of RAW data in a compact, solid state recording and playback package that easily mounts directly on a variety of cameras. For the first time, a true real time lens-to-post workflow exists for 4K projects on the same device you can use for HD projects today. The Ki Pro Quad is the ideal solution for any project from HD to 4K. Priced substantially less than other 4K recorders but still boasting the power and functionality for the demands of 4K productions as well as functionality not found in recorders of ANY price.

Manageable 4K

The Ki Pro Quad serves as a central gathering point for all your 4K production needs; bringing camera signals into Ki Pro Quad and then simultaneously create edit-friendly 4K ProRes files, outputing to 4K monitors and recording RAW data directly to Thunderbolt™-enabled computer/storage system. 4K content needs are constantly expanding, and the Ki Pro Quad helps ease the transition to 4K with a recorder that creates smaller file sizes while still retaining superior quality.

HD now, 4K when you need it

The Ki Pro Quad supports 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 recording even at HD and 2K resolutions. Real time scaling from 4K to 2K/HD. Shoot 4K but record 2K to keep file sizes down but still have theatrical quality images to work with. HDMI output allows connection even to HD consumer monitors. Ki Pro Quad can cover your needs today and into the future.

Powerful RAW debayering

New hardware-based features, such as real time, high-quality RAW debayering, recording directly to 4K resolution Apple ProRes files and real time scaling from 4K to HD. Only AJA can deliver advanced features like these in such a compact package. RAW data is the source from which all other image formats can be generated. This is the equivalent of a camera negative in film terms. Thunderbolt™ allows the bandwidth to record this RAW data via a single cable to a properly configured drive array. Ki Pro Quad supports RAW data pass-through while simultaneously recording to 4K ProRes files, for the ultimate in data security and flexibility.

Flexible mounting options

4K cameras are no longer giant pieces of machinery. They are as mobile as an HD camera and need a recording device that matches. Ki Pro Quad has the same side profile as the AJA Ki Pro Mini, so the same mounting accessories can be used to mount the Ki Pro Quad to cameras, rails or whatever the situation calls for. The Universal Mounting Plate and 15mm Rod Mount Plate provide almost endless mounting possibilities when used in combination with battery plates, hot shoe mounts, articulated arms and more, giving you more options for mounting and camera balance - weight distribution can be carefully controlled instead of just adding another device to the body.

4K and HD Monitoring

At 4K resolution, the ability to check focus and exposure is critical. The only way to do this is with proper, full 4K monitoring. Ki Pro Quad provides a full resolution output that can be fed to 4K monitors for real time, on set quality control. Real time hardware scaling creates high-quality HD-SDI and HDMI outputs for viewing on consumer and professional HD monitors, giving you instant, real-time feedback for less work during the post production process.

Familiar controls and operation

Ki Pro Quad follows the same tried-and-true principles that have made the rest of the Ki Pro family successful, creating high-quality, low-bandwidth ProRes files up to 4K resolutions, that can be easily offloaded to any Thunderbolt™-enabled Mac via AJA's new SSD Thunderbolt reader. The resolution may be different, but the process is the same. And with the same capabilities of Ki Pro Mini for remote control, automation, ease of use and mounting options, the transition to Ki Pro Quad is virtually seamless.

Storage options and accessories

Ki Pro Quad lets you record edit-friendly 4K, 2K, or HD ProRes files directly to removable AJA Pak SSD media. 256GB and 512GB Pak SSD modules are available, and once removed from the Ki Pro Quad, the Pak can be inserted in the AJA Pak Dock which connects directly to your computer via Thunderbolt™ or USB 3.0, allowing you to rapidly transfer ProRes QuickTime files that are ready for use immediately in your non-linear editing system.

For working in direct light situations, a monitor hood is included that screws onto the Ki Pro Quad chassis for a secure fit that helps block direct light onto the built-in confidence monitor. And when working at your desktop, the Ki Pro Quad Desk Stand is the perfect solution and includes a right angle power cable for easy connection from the Ki Pro Quad to it's power supply.
