AJA Video Systems announced a 50% price drop for its popular Ki Pro Rack file-based recording and playback device. Simultaneous to announcing the new $1995 US MSRP price point, AJA has also released the free v6.0 firmware update that brings enhanced embedded closed captioning support to Ki Pro Rack.
With new v6.0 firmware, Ki Pro Rack now fully supports recording and playout of video with embedded Closed Captioning. The device recognizes CEA-708 within incoming SDI inputs and encodes Closed Captioning to Apple ProRes recorded files for playout.
Ki Pro Rack simplifies the acquisition-to-edit workflow by creating high-quality Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD files which can be used immediately in most standard professional editing systems without the need to transcode files.
Customers who purchased Ki Pro Rack between July 1st through to August 1st, will qualify to receive two AJA SSD drives for free for each Ki Pro Rack purchased. This promotion will be managed directly through AJA; qualified customers should fill out the online claim form at www.aja.com/kiprorackpromo
