“With productions rapidly embracing high resolution, high frame rate and multi-cam workflows, media storage is a key concern. Pak 2000 introduces a high capacity recordingoption at a lower cost per GB than before, and with the performance and reliability our products are known for,” shared AJA president Nick Rashby. “Our new HFS+ andexFat options give customers greater flexibility with formatting upon ordering that fits their workflow demands.”
The company says that the Pak 2000 delivers the longer recording capacity required for live event productions, documentaries, news and sports programming, making it ideal for multi-camera HDworkflows with the Ki Pro Ultra Plus’s multi-channel HD recording capabilities. The high capacity drive can hold more than four hours of 4K/UltraHD ProRes (HQ), three hoursof ProRes 4444 at 30p, and up to two hours ProRes (HQ) or 90 minutes of ProRes 4444 at 60p.
