Ki Pro Ultra provides full 16-Channel audio support embedded over SDI or Fiber. Flexible routing options mean that 8-Channel only outputs like HDMI, Analog and Digital carry options for selecting the 8-Channel group required. Monitoring via the headphone jack on the front of the unit is split into easy 2-Channel groupings for on-set checks.
