AJA has released firmware 3.0 for its Ki Pro GO multi-channel H.264 USB recorder/player, which expands its recording options to include network-based recording simultaneously with recording to local USB drives, as well as support for SMB protocols via GigE networking.
The mobile AJA Ki Pro GO H.264 recorder enables parallel recording with various recording parameters (up to max 10 bit 4:2:2) of FullHD H.264 video to up to 5 USB sticks from input per via up to four HDMI or SDI sources.

Using the new firmware 3.0, each channel can now be recorded directly to a NAS (Network Attached Storage) via the Ki Pro GO's built-in GigE port. This provides a centralized storage location for primary or backup recording channels, independent of local USB storage. When used as primary recording storage, NLEs and processing systems can access source media directly from the NAS, providing instant access from anywhere on the LAN.
The new Ki Pro GO v3.0 firmware is available now as a free download from the AJA website.
