This past April, we scoured the multiple exhibit floors of the 2009 NAB Show for the latest and greatest innovations for our readers. Sixteen exemplary items were selected as winners of our annual Vidy Awards, the longest-running NAB awards program. Products were nominated by a jury of editors and contributors to Videography and DV magazines. For an item to be given a Vidy Award, it must be a new product, receive a unanimous vote of the judges and have a significant relevance to the Videography readership.
AJA Video Ki Pro
With its extensive analog and digital connectivity, Ki Pro provides a new way of connecting production and post; virtually any video and audio source can be fed into Ki Pro to record 10-bit Apple ProRes 422 media that is then immediately available to edit within Apple's Final Cut Studio.
Ki Pro will allow users to record hours of Apple ProRes 422 media to removable storage modules with either spinning disk or SSD media with built-in FireWire 800, or to 34mm ExpressCard Flash-based media, for immediate editing and file access. The unit can connect to any digital camera via SDI or HDMI, or any analog camera with multiple input options. read more...
