AJA Video Systems announced the new compact PAK Dock Pro media reader featuring ubiquitous USB-C connectivity, ensuring broad compatibility and extremely fast transfer speeds.
AJA Video Systems rolled out this month the new compact PAK Dock Pro media reader featuring ubiquitous USB-C connectivity. With no external power supply required, the compact, plug-and-play device streamlines the transfer of Apple ProRes and Avid DNx files from AJA Ki Pro Ultra 12G digital video recorders to desktop and laptop computers on macOS and Windows operating systems. PAK Dock Pro supports the latest USB 3.2 Gen 1 standard via the USB-C connection, ensuring broad compatibility and extremely fast transfer speeds.
Designed to simplify media transfers in broadcast, production, post and ProAV environments, PAK Dock Pro allows professionals to quickly and easily ingest files recorded to AJA PAK solid state drives (SSDs) to a desktop or laptop computer. Users remove the PAK media drive from the Ki Pro Ultra 12G, insert it into the PAK Dock Pro and plug the media reader into their computer via USB-C for near-instant editing, highlights creation, archiving and more.
File based recording means your files are your master copy – something you don’t want to leave to chance. PAK Media uses a solid metal housing to protect the internal SSD drive from the bumps and bounces of field use, ensuring your media is secure. The reinforced connector is engineered for repeated insertion and removal cycles, unlike the connector built into SSD drives, which is designed primarily to be inserted into a computer and rarely removed.
Compatible with all AJA PAK drives
There are four PAK Media sizes available offering a balance between price and long recording needs and you may order the media as preformatted in either HFS+ or exFAT for fast deployment upon arrival. PAK Dock Pro is compatible with all AJA PAK drives including the PAK 2000, PAK 1000, PAK 512 and PAK 256, and PAK drives used in legacy Ki Pro Ultra and Ki Pro Quad products.
“Speed and efficiency are mission critical in modern content production, and we strive to deliver these features for every product we bring to market. AJA PAK Dock Pro integrates the latest USB-C connectivity to ensure lightning fast results and broad compatibility when transferring media, whatever the use case,” shared Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.

- Compatible with all AJA PAK Media for convenient file transfers
