question

I'm looking for a device to record live 12G 4K. The AJA KiPro Quad looks like it can record 4 HDSDI inputs, but I don't see a port for a single 12G cable. I love my HD KiPros but if this AJA is not capable of 12G 4K, I need a recommendation for a different product?
Asked by: Anonymous
The KiPro is a fine device however it does not do 12G. Here is one recorder that can. Atomos Shogun Inferno 7 4K HDMI/Quad 3G-SDI/12G-SDI Recording Monitor B&H # ATSGI.

question

I know this has sort of been answered by Christopher L already, but I want to, uh, narrow the focus. Will the Ki Pro Quad record RAW from a Cion? I know it sounds like a stupid question, but I haven't seen any specific mentions online of people doing this; most of the use seems to be with Canon and Sony cameras. And if this does work with the Cion (it sounds like it would), would this handle the full 4K 120 FPS data stream? I just recently bought a Cion, and it's my first experience shooting anything higher than 1080.
Asked by: David
No, the Ki Pro Quad will not record CION RAW.

question

It is compatible 4k with 60fps ?
Asked by: Arjun C.
This is what AJA has to say: The the AJA Ki Pro Quad can do: 4K (4096x2160) p 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, 50*, 59.94* Note: 50 and 59.94 are not supported for recording only for input passthrough. So so while it is compatible, it will not record at 59.94.

question

question

With a C500, do you apply a custom look to send out to the recorder or do you just send out Canon RAW? Trying to understand how much flexibility you have to color grade a prores image and if it is better to apply a look in the C500 or just send out raw to the recorder.
Asked by: ROB R.
At this time you cannot 'bake in a LUT for the Canon Log file.What you can do is this: record the video as Canon Log file and apply a LUT for the director monitor as well as in color grading. Log gives you the maximum flexibility for color grading.

question

how many video feeds can it record simultaneously? i.e. if i plug four seperate HD cameras into each of the four sdi inputs?

Sorry, I can't answer your question. I only use the Quad to record ProRes files with my Canon C500.
