LAS VEGAS — DNF Controls (DNFControls.com) of Northridge, CA, is unveiling an Ethernet-based, tactile control panel that’s designed specifically for AJA’s Ki Pro family of file-based recording and playback devices. The ST600-KIPRO was developed in response to user demand for full-featured, IP-based control over AJA’s Ki Pro file-based record/playback devices. All four models are supported, including the 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD HFR Ki Pro Ultra unit with fiber connectivity, its non-fiber cousin Ki Pro Rack, an HD/SD-SDI rackmount edition, the Ki Pro Quad 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD camera-mountable recorder and the compact Ki Pro Mini HD/SD camera-mountable recorder.
DNF’s ST600-KPRO supports up to four AJA units with full IP controls for record, play, stop, rewind, fast forward and jog. It can create, name and record clips; mark and recall cue points; view, select, load and play from a user-specified timecode location.
“We’re seeing many more customers transition to ethernet-based workflows, and the ST600-KIPRO provides a seamless connectivity path for existing customers of our popular Ki Pro family of recorders,” says Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems. “Aligning with DNF marks the latest development in our continued effort to expand control options for our products.”
“The ST600-KIPRO was developed to streamline access to features and functions for AJA Ki Pro users,” adds Dan Fogel, DNF’s chief technology officer. “Our panel gives operators a full range of device control and the freedom to focus on creativity and production values rather than connectivity issues.”
