The AJA Ki Pro Mini Recorder with Compatible Porta Brace Case Kit, from B&H, is a practical pairing. The Ki Pro Mini, aside from its recording features, is known for how conveniently it can be used mounted on a rig. The Porta Brace case, designed specifically for the Mini, takes nothing away from the Mini in covering and protecting it. The Mini can be mounted on a rig while inside the case, and all ports and controls will be accessible by flap-open pockets.
The Mini connects to any SDI- or HDMI-equipped camera and records whatever the camera is shooting, recording in "edit-ready" Apple ProRes codec, in high-quality 10-bit color depth. The footage can then be unloaded to any of the common editing systems and edited without first converting to an "accepted" codec.
