Expanding on the Ki Pro Ultra, the AJA Ki Pro Ultra Plus allows for four channels of simultaneous recording in up to 1080p60/50, as well as single channel recording and playback of DCI 4K, Ultra HD 4K, 2K, and HD signals. Ki Pro Ultra Plus features four 3G-SDI inputs and one HDMI input, and the same number of outputs, and also supports optional fiber modules for extended distances.
Recording to ProRes codecs up to ProRes 4444 and to Avid DNxHD, and offering familiar VTR-style front panel controls, the Ki Pro Ultra Plus is simple to use and records to robust, edit-ready formats. It records to optional AJA Pak Media SSDs. Two AJA Pak slots are available and allow for rollover recording without dropping frames.
Ki Pro Ultra Plus has a 4.8″, 720p LCD screen that delivers a clear playback image. Dual redundant 4-pin XLR power inputs provide you with security against accidental power loss. One power supply is included.
Ki Pro Ultra Plus can be used desktop-mounted or installed in a 2 RU rack. It has a half-rack width, and two units fit in a single compatible rack shelf, sold separately. It also has a handle on top for easy transport.
Ki Pro Ultra Plus even allows independent profile support per channel in Multi-Channel mode. Select high-resolution Apple ProRes HQ for high-quality finishing and use a second input to record ProRes (proxy) for an efficient editing pipeline.
Starting with input 1, add channels as needed in order when utilizing like raster sizes and frame rates, and record your HD Apple ProRes files on the same AJA Pak media, sold separately. (Pak Media 1000 modules with an -R0 module designation and all Pak Media modules with -R1 designations are supported for multi-channel recording.) Ki Pro Ultra Plus even allows rollover to a second Pak for hours of uninterrupted multi-channel recording.
While recording, the file header is then continuously updated every time new data is written. That way, the only loss that should be incurred is the last few frames that were in transit to the media drive to be recorded when the operation was interrupted. Frames that are already recorded will be preserved and are recoverable, providing greater peace-of-mind on set and in the studio, essential for multi-channel recording.
A single cable can affordably transport both Ultra HD or HD video and clean 24-bit, 48 Hz 8-channel audio to or from common HDMI 2.0 devices for a simple setup; perfect for independent producers, editors, ProAV, and anyone seeking to utilize the latest affordable capture and monitoring tools.
DCI/Ultra HD is supported through 4 x 3G-SDI, HDMI 2.0, or optional fiber inputs and outputs.
Ki Pro Ultra Plus not only supports true 4K at 4096 x 2160p for digital cinema and high-quality Ultra HD for broadcast production, it also offers the color depth to match.
Any shoot or project benefits from the fabulously rich colors and smooth gradations across the luminance and chroma range that 12-bit makes possible with full 4:4:4 support, including Apple ProRes 4444 XQ.
VFX work benefits from Ki Pro Ultra Plus’ 12-bit support on 4 x 3G-SDI inputs to captured Apple ProRes 444 files, resulting in clean green screen plates across the DCI/Ultra HD/2K/HD raster landscape for easy and detailed post-production manipulation. With full HDMI 2.0, you can monitor it all from 4:2:2 YCbCr to full 4:4:4 RGB in 12-bit.
Next generation DCI/Ultra HD 60p recording is attainable all the way up to Apple ProRes HQ when using optional AJA Pak1000, or AJA Pak512-R1 and Pak256-R1 SSD media.
By utilizing Apple ProRes, your project will have the best image quality available, with manageable and affordable file sizes.

Set up is easy, with Ki Pro Ultra Plus sensing the format being delivered in its “Follow Input” mode. Ki Pro Ultra Plus also allows you to select separate quad modes for both in and out, giving an additional conversion feature for when you need it.
Pak1000 is the ideal companion for Ki Pro Ultra Plus, offering 1TB of fast SSD media for up to 4K recording at 60p in ProRes HQ. Pak512-R1 and Pak256-R1 models offer equal performance in smaller capacities when needed.
The twin media drive bays on the Ki Pro Ultra Plus allow extremely fast media changes and rollover recording even for multi-channel recording, which allows a recording to start on one media module and seamlessly continue onto the second module once the first has reached capacity.
Pak media may also be used with the optional Pak Dock, which features USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt connectors for lightning-fast data transfers from and to your desktop or laptop.
Note: Multi-channel mode on the Ki Pro Ultra Plus is not supported by Pak-Adapt-eSATA.
The large LCD provides detailed playback and monitoring for onset use, the OB truck, a helicopter, or the studio, and its transparent menu overlays can be set at just the level the user prefers. Ki Pro Ultra Plus offers control over brightness of the display for flexible control to suit your working environment.
Just like a traditional tape deck, Ki Pro Ultra Plus features straightforward and dedicated transport buttons — record, play, stop, rewind, and fast forward — making the device easy to operate with minimal training time.
The current status of the system and key configuration information are clearly displayed on the built-in LCD screen. Additional operational information can be found in the status menu, which can be accessed even when recording or playing back.
The Ki Pro Ultra Plus operating system offers users a logical menu structure that is easy to navigate with menu parameters presented in clear and understandable language.

Dual LC 3G Fiber Tx SFP AJA – Part # FIBERLC-2-TX
Dual LC 3G Fiber Rx SFP AJA – Part # FIBERLC-2-RX
