Ki Pro Mini Qualified CF Cards (Version 4.0 and below) - Note on Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash Cards:
An issue has come to our attention regarding the use of Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash cards as originally qualified for use with the Ki Pro Mini. If the Lexar Compact Flash cards are inserted in the Ki Pro Mini prior to powering up the unit, the Lexar Compact Flash cards will falsely report recording; in actuality data will not be written to the Compact Flash card as expected. While this issue does not occur if the Lexar Compact Flash card is inserted after the Ki Pro Mini is powered up, we can no longer recommend the use of these cards at this time. We are actively working to determine the cause of this issue, but for now, the Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash card has been removed from our list of qualified Compact Flash cards for use with Ki Pro Mini. Please note that the issue described above for the Lexar Compact Flash card does not affect the other cards qualified for use with the Ki Pro Mini. Additionally, we will be adding new choices to the qualified list of Compact Flash cards for use with Ki Pro Mini in the near future. We apologize for any inconvenience the recommendation of the Lexar 32GB Professional 600x Compact Flash card may have caused.

Ki Pro Mini Qualified CF Cards (Version 4.2 and later)
There are a large number of CompactFlash (CF) cards available in the marketplace, however not all CF cards provide sufficient bandwidth for use with the AJA Ki Pro Mini. The following CF cards have been tested and are AJA qualifed for use with the AJA Ki Pro Mini as of January 2014. Note that all testing was done on Ki Pro Mini frmware v4.2.

AJA Ki Pro Mini offers support for SDI and HDMI cameras, with key features including:

  • 10-bit full-raster recording to Apple ProRes 422 SD and HD formats (including HQ, LT and Proxy)
  • Recording of SD/HD files from digital video cameras to Compact Flash (CF) cards
  • Mac OS X friendly media and native QuickTime files--no log-and-capture required
  • Professional video connectivity through SD/HD SDI and HDMI I/O2 channels of balanced XLR audio with switch selectable line/mic levels
  • 8 channels of embedded digital audio over SDI and HDMI
  • Flexible control options including familiar front panel and web browser interfaces
  • Optional Ki Pro Mini Mounting Plates that attach to hot shoes, battery plates and virtually any other accessory bracket
  • Aircraft-grade aluminum construction that delivers light weight and maximum ruggedness



Ki Pro Mini supports a streamlined apple file-based production-to-post workflow, recording native Apple ProRes 422 QuickTime files onto Compact Flash cards.

The fastest path from camera to editorial
Designed to mount easily to virtually any SDI or HDMI equipped video camera, Ki Pro Mini connects directly to your camera's digital output and captures full quality footage to Compact Flash (CF) media in Apple ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD formats. When it's time to edit, just remove the CF media, transfer to your computer via card reader, and the footage is ready to use straight away in your editing software, without the need for additional import or transcoding steps.

10-bit, full raster recording
Big on quality - but not on file size. Recording 10-bit, full raster files, Ki Pro Mini gives you high quality images that easily stand up to post processing requirements - and client scrutiny.

Compared to 8-bit recording devices, 10-bit 4:2:2 recording (when supported by the codec) provides better quantization, giving a superior representation of the original scene and allowing for more flexibility in post production when adjusting color and balance.

By utilizing efficient ProRes codecs, file sizes are kept in check so you won't need to blow your production budget on extra storage.

Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD
While many cameras record directly to digital files, most native camera formats aren't designed for efficient non-linear editorial work. Ki Pro Mini solves this problem by recording direct to the formats you edit in, using a variety of Apple ProRes 422 or Avid DNxHD codecs.

Different cameras each record to their own native formats, which can lead to inefficiencies in the editing process. Recording each camera to a Ki Pro Mini unifies production to a single file format, streamlining the edit process.

Familiar controls and operation
With simple controls and an intuitive operation, Ki Pro Mini is easy to incorporate into your existing setup without worrying about a learning curve.

Just like a traditional tape deck, Ki Pro Mini features straightforward and dedicated transport buttons - record, play, stop, rewind, fast forward - making the device easy to operate with minimal training time. The current status of the system and key configuration information is clearly displayed on the built-in screen. Additional operational information can be found in the STATUS menu which can be accessed even when recording or playing back.

The Ki Pro Mini operating system offers users a flat menu structure that is easy to navigate with menu parameters presented in clear and understandable language.

Ready for action
Compact but rugged, Ki Pro Mini is designed to withstand the rigors of real world use, shoot after shoot, day after day. We use the highest quality components to ensure it's ready to go to work every time you are.

It may be small, but Ki Pro Mini is made of lightweight, strong aluminum, with a robust construction that allows it to support the growing amount of extra gear that is attached to today's cameras.

Playback and edit on-set
Ki Pro Mini vastly extends on-set capabilities for smaller productions and fast-moving shoots. Recorded shots can be played immediately without the need for separate video assist equipment.
If you're using a mobile editing system, footage from Ki Pro Mini can be edited while you're still on the set, letting you make sure you have the right shots and allowing the talent to see their performances in context to give them better insight into the scene.

Flexible mounting options
Because no two setups are ever the same, you need the flexibility to adapt to the circumstances of any shoot. The Mini Mounting Plate attaches to the sides of the Ki Pro Mini and provides almost endless mounting possibilities when used in combination with battery plates, hot shoe mounts, articulated arms and more.

Giving you more options for mounting, camera balance and weight distribution can be carefully controlled instead of just adding another device to the body.

Broadcast-quality video and audio I/O
Ki Pro Mini is designed for optimum performance whether your system uses SDI, HDMI or a combination of both. And because the SDI and HDMI outputs are both always active, the Ki Pro Mini is not just a recorder/player but a converter as well.

In addition to support for embedded SDI or HDMI audio, the two XLR analog audio inputs allow audio from mixers and microphones, including support for phantom power, to be recorded directly into the files created by Ki Pro Mini.

Remote configuration and operation
The area around a camera can be a crowded place on set. Ki Pro Mini is a favorite of DITs because it is uniquely equipped for advanced remote control and configuration. With a standard Ethernet LAN connection to a host computer and any web browser, all Ki Pro Mini parameter settings, clip selection and transport controls can be controlled; no additional or special software installation is required on the host computer.

Multiple Ki Pro Mini units can even be controlled from a single web interface making Ki Pro Mini an ideal solution for multi-camera recordings. Complete developer tools are also available allowing advanced users to script and automate Ki Pro Mini for custom applications.

Automatic Camera Control
Using the Camera Data menu parameter, record start/stop operation can be trigged automatically with select cameras - including unique HDMI support for Sony, Canon (HDMI timecode) and Nikon (DSLR support). Even file names can be reproduced on the Ki Pro Mini to match the camera native recordings. Automated start/stop can also be accomplished via LANC when connected to properly equipped cameras.
