AJA’s Ki Pro GO v3.0 firmware expands recording options for its multi-channel H.264 recorder and player with new network-based recording and support for SMB protocols via GigE network connectivity. The new networked storage compatibility improves workflow flexibility. Simultaneous recording to local USB drives and network storage allows primary and archival recording, which suits production applications including live events and sports broadcasts.
The portable, multi-channel H.264 Ki Pro GO recorder supports up to four channels of simultaneous HD and SD recording either to regular off-the-shelf media or new network-based storage. Ki Pro GO v3.0 will record any channel directly to network attached storage (NAS) via Ki Pro GO’s integrated GigE port, creating a central storage location for primary or backup recording channels independent of local USB storage.
When used as the primary recording location, NLEs and processing systems can access source media directly from NAS, giving immediate access from anywhere on the LAN. For live event workflows, NAS can be used as secure backup or archival storage, and local USB drives can be handed off to customers following shoots. Multiple Ki Pro GO devices can connect to the same centralised NAS storage, further increasing system flexibility.
Ki Pro GO v3.0 firmware is available now as a free download from the AJA website. www.aja.com
