    Version 3.0 firmware is available as a no-cost download for Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini owners.

    Just some of the key new features for Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini added with this firmware release are:

    – Data Transfer via FireWire 800 – Ki Pro can now be configured for data transfer to FireWire 800-equipped Apple computers, for situations where the unit is not easily accessible for physical data removal.

    – Data Transfer via LAN connection – Allows transfer of files through standard Ethernet networking for Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini.

    – Super Out – Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini can now burn timecode and transport state into the video signal, providing at-a-glance status to users monitoring output, without having to check the device itself. It is also convenient for times when video is dubbed from Ki Pro/Ki Pro Mini to another source to track timecode throughout post. A user selectable Super Out (window burn) option for SDI has also been added to both Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini.

    – Playlist creation – A new feature for the web UI adds flexibility in selecting clip playback order for both Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini.

    – FireWire 400 (1394a) port enabled—Provides Ki Pro support for camera start/stop commands as well as timecode values; particularly useful for HDV cameras that may lack LTC or SDI timecode outputs.

    – HDMI timecode support in Ki Pro Mini for Sony NEX-FS100 and other Sony NXCAM cameras.

    – ExpressCard/34 Support – Ki Pro now supports ExpressCard/34 (34mm wide) memory cards (not ExpressCard/54). Check the AJA Ki Pro support page for recommended cards.

    – Additional RS-422 Functionality for Ki Pro to support use in post-production applications.

    – LANC Support – Ki Pro now supports LANC, enabling camera operators to control shooting via LANC-based controllers and LANC enabled cameras.

    – 1080 Variable Frame Rate Support for certain Canon camcorders, for Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini.

    – Presets can now be created, saved and recalled for easier interaction with device settings in Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini.

    – Continued Recording Option – v3.0 adds an option for continued recording upon video input loss. Ki Pro and Ki Pro Mini will generate a status change video frame, then pick up recording automatically when a valid video signal is returned.

    For details on these and other features enabled with version 3.0 firmware, please feel free to review the Release Notes document found here:

    Maybe I’m missing something, but I don’t see DNxHD support being added to the KiPro Mini yet.

    Support for DNx on Ki Pro Mini will arrive with the next firmware update. Some confusion stems from the fact that Ki Pro version 3.0 firmware was first demonstrated at IBC and support for Avid DNx was announced at that tradeshow as well. Support for DNx was always planned for a subsequent release, not for the version 3.0 release. Look for DNx support in the next firmware release.

    Thanks for clarifying.

    Is it too much to ask for a date estimate for when we may see the next firmware update?
