Industry Standard Connectivity

The video and audio connections on the rear panel of the Ki Pro GO2 offer 4x 3G-SDI and 4x HDMI inputs with separate SDI and HDMI monitoring which includes Matrix Monitoring for multi-channel viewing on a single HD display. XLR Analog Audio In supports Mic and Line level signals with Phantom Power for audio recording from master sources, mixers and more. HDMI and SDI 2-channel embedded audio or the XLR analog inputs can be easily assigned to each recording channel. Alternatively, you can use the second Analog Audio input as a LTC input. Four USB ports on the front provide easy to access recording media using qualified USB drives, with a fifth USB port on the rear. Flexible destination mapping allows any USB port or network storage to be used as the primary record location and any USB port to be used as a backup location or pass-on of a second copy. This allows for backup or pass-on of a secondary copy of captured files to post-production, clients, or others on your team. You can also map a single source to multiple USBs for duplication. Four 3G-SDI outputs ensure that signal pass through is available for connectivity into a wide range of devices from routers, to switchers, additional Ki Pros and more. Optional redundant power supplies ensure that always up reliability is provided for your critical live event needs.

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.265 or H.264 simultaneously with Ki Pro GO2. Simplify your setup by connecting up to four HDMI and four 3G-SDI source cables into Ki Pro GO2 and assign any combination of four inputs at a time for four channels of H.265 or H.264 recording to any four of the 5 USB ports on the Ki Pro GO2. Time is always tight, especially for live events. Ki Pro GO2's Genlock free inputs make it easy to switch your sources including SDI cameras, DSLRs, or HDMI cameras to the appropriate recording channel, all conveniently mapped within Ki Pro GO2's elegant and easy to use UI.

Network Recording

Extend your recording capabilities through the use of external (NAS) storage. Simply connect your storage to the Ki Pro GO2 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 GO2’s 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 GO2 simplifies setup 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.

H.265 and H.264 Encoding

Pick your Quality. Deliver your Bit Rate. Ki Pro GO2 allows independent quality settings per channel for recording, with five recording settings choices for any channel assignment depending upon your delivery need or eventual bandwidth allocation for the file's playback stream. Choose any one of five VBR Recording Settings allowing up to 15Mbps for H.265 and 25Mbps for H.264: Low: Suitable for talking heads, conference backups, security recording and more. Med-Low Medium: Ideal for higher detail and more complex content. Med-High High: Serves well for fast moving, highly detailed content like sports or live event scenarios like concerts. Ki Pro GO2 records as a standard .MP4 file, providing convenience and compatibility with a huge range of software applications.

Redundant Recording

Ki Pro GO2 offers a large matrix of possibilities for redundant recording needs. Four USB ports on the front and a fifth USB port on the rear provide easy to access recording media using qualified off the shelf USB drives. The Ki Pro GO2 offers the user flexibility in choosing any USB port for a channel’s primary and any USB port for a channel’s backup. The backup’s identical redundant recording allows for a true backup or pass on secondary copy of captured files to post-production, clients, or others on your team. In the case of a single input source, you can assign a single input to four primary recording channels and four backup channels in flexible combinations across the 5 USB ports, enabling 8 captures of the source to a total of 5 physical devices for duplication needs. The workflows below provide some examples of just some of the possibilities possible with Ki Pro GO2's focus on a key concept of ‘pass out’ or ‘pass around’ or ‘handout’ media. Hit stop on your recordings and the show is ready to give to your clients right there and then.

Off the Shelf USB Media

Ki Pro GO2 provides convenient recording to cost effective, off the shelf USB media with FAT or exFAT file systems support for cross-platform use when transferring files to workstations, servers and more.

Ki Pro GO2 supports the formatting of media in standalone operation.

LTC Insert

Ki Pro GO2 provides support for a wide variety of input sources with up to eight inputs. This flexibility also means you may have sources that do not have timecode, and so the system enables you to utilize one of the analog audio inputs as a source for your own Longitudinal Time Code (LTC) insert.

Audio Flexibility

Each Ki Pro GO2 recording channel can capture 2-channels of embedded audio from 3G-SDI or HDMI inputs, or 2-channel Analog Audio from the XLR ports on the rear of the unit. Each XLR port provides a selection of Line, Mic, or +48V Phantom Power for level control and each recording channel offers the choice of Follow Video or Analog Audio. This flexibility enables the capture of audio coming straight from the source input or the capture and insertion of audio from an audio mixer or microphone as desired.

File Transfers

In an age of remote workflows, being able to transfer files is key. Ki Pro GO2 offers file transfers across the network through the web UI, accessible from any laptop or workstation on any OS, anywhere.

Remote Configuration and Operation

Ki Pro GO2 is equipped for advanced remote control and configuration. With a standard Ethernet LAN connection to a host computer and any standard web browser on any OS, all Ki Pro GO2 parameter settings, clip selection, and transport controls can be controlled remotely over the network.
