- Ki Pro Ultra 12G — Starting off with the Cadillac of recording devices, the Ki Pro Ultra 12G records video at 4k 60 to flash drives with Analog or Digital audio. Ki Pro Ultra 12G is a multi-channel Apple ProRes recorder offering up to 4-Channels of simultaneous HD recording, or in Single-Channel mode, a 4K/UltraHD/2K/HD Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR recorder and player. Avid DNxHD MXF is also supported up to HD formats in Single-Channel mode.https://nationwidevideo.com/gear/aja-ki-pro-ultra-12g-4k-recorder/
- Fido Converters — FiDO is AJA’s family of SDI/Optical Fiber converters. FiDO allows the transport of 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI over distances up to 10km when using standard Single-Mode fiber optic cable. FiDO models support video formats all the way up to 4K/UltraHD. While the models are too broad to focus on one particular SKU we carry a variety of awesome Fido converters in our rental stock.https://nationwidevideo.com/gear/aja-dual-conductor-fido-st-hd-sdi-over-fiber-extender-kit-150m-fiber-cable/
- FS4 or FS-HDR — FS4 is a 4-channel 2K/HD/SD or 1-channel 4K/UltraHD frame synchronizer and up, down, cross-converter, and so much more. This combination frame synchronizer and converter offers incredible versatility and connectivity in a sleek 1RU frame for all your 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD/SD conversion needs. FS4 offers a wide range of connectivity for both video and audio, including optional SFPs for single link 12G-SDI connectivity. For HDR workflows, the FS4 supports automatic or configurable HDR metadata generation for the SDI output VPID and HDMI output HDR Infoframe. These are less expensive than an image-pro 4K but have frame sync and supports a bunch of analog audio with a breakout cable.https://www.aja.com/products/fs4
