AJA has expanded its line of Pak SSD media with the new 2TB Pak 2000 for Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Ultra Plus recording and playback systems. The company also announced new ordering options for the entire Pak drive family, including HFS+ formatting for Mac OS users and exFAT for PC and universal use.
“With productions embracing high resolution, high frame rate and multi-cam workflows, media storage is a key concern. Pak 2000 introduces a high capacity recording option at a lower cost per GB,” says AJA president Nick Rashby. “Our new HFS+ and exFat options give customers greater flexibility with formatting upon ordering that fits their workflow demands.”
Pak 2000 offers longer recording capacity required for documentaries, news, sports programming and live events, making it suitable for multi-camera HD workflows with the Ki Pro Ultra Plus’s multi-channel HD recording capabilities. The high capacity drive can hold more than four hours of 4K/UltraHD ProRes (HQ), three hours of ProRes 4444 at 30p and up to two hours ProRes (HQ) or 90 minutes of ProRes 4444 at 60p.
Users can get double that length with two Pak drives and rollover support in Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Ultra Plus.
