Genlock Free Recording
with Easy Input Mapping
Record 1, 2, 3 or 4-channels of HD or SD up to 1080p 50/60 in H.264 simultaneously with Ki Pro GO. Simplify your setup by connecting up to four HDMI and four 3G-SDI source cables into Ki Pro GO and assign any combination of four inputs at a time for four channels of H.264 recording to any four of the 5 USB ports on the Ki Pro GO.
Time is always tight, especially for live events. Ki Pro GO's Genlock free inputs make it is easy to switch your sources including SDI cameras, DSLRs, or HDMI cameras to the appropriate recording channel, all conveniently mapped within Ki Pro GO's elegant UI.
Extend your recording capabilities through the use of external (NAS) storage. Simply connect your storage to the Ki Pro GO over a standard Gigabit Ethernet network and take advantage of all the features of networked storage. Use your NAS as your primary storage location or as secondary (backup) media – you can even record to NAS and local, USB-based storage simultaneously, giving you the perfect combination of shared storage and portability.
Ki Pro GOs elegant and intuitive UI makes NAS set up easy. Simply enter the IP address of the storage, any required user credentials, and the SMB dialect you wish to use, and you’re ready to record. Ki Pro GO simplifies set up even further by auto-detecting the SMB dialect of your NAS system and self-configuring to match. SMB credentials can also be stored in system presets and recalled at the push of a button for “on-the-fly” system reconfiguration.
