The AJA Ki Pro Rack is a tapeless, file-based video recorder that captures and records in ready-to-edit ProRes and DNxHD codecs, in 10-bit 4:2:2 full-raster files, and onto HDD or SSD storage modules (sold separately). 10-bit 4:2:2 color depth provides superior dynamic range, original picture representation, and flexibility in adjusting color and balance in post. Two slots are available for the storage modules.
