    From Off Hollywood.





    "But the REALLY BIG NEWS is the Ki PRO. At just under $4000 this is a tapeless video recording device that records high quality Apple ProRes 422 Quicktime files direct to disc. SD/HD-SDI, HDMI, and analog inputs. An olptional "exo-skeleton" puts the unit in a chassis that can both on a tripod with the camera.

    Many cameras have outputs that bypass on-camera compression - so, for example - if you take the 10-bit HD-SDI feed from a Varicam into the device - you would record higher quality files that the actual camera is capable of.

    Another obvious benefit is that some shows use a variety of different cameras and recording formats. Using Ki Pro's would allow all media shot to be in 1920x1080 Prores - ready to edit.

    I'm most excited about using this as a dailies solution, and an an on-set playback system."

    Interesting. Like a AG-HPG20, but skips AVC-I's need for conversion to ProRes (if you're working in Final Cut, at least). I wonder if it records to a hard drive or some kind of cards. Are those 2 slots for Sony solid state cards in the upper right corner of the machine?

    Good idea, but could they make it a little smaller, like the size of a Firestore or a Nano Flash?

    There is a PCIe connection option for this but it's really geared towards laptops and mobile editors. Although it doesn't mention the exact connection used for the laptop, FW? EC?

    Looks like a cool little box if your workflow calls for it. If anyone sees it next to a laptop please post a pic. Price is decent.

    Parallel thinking...

    Ki Pro with remote control from i-Phone or PDA's... that was an idea that I was developing and it will be seeing in few months... but in a 4:4:4 2K uncompressed...
