Korea Racing Authority Leverages AJA Ki Pro Go for Productions
Korean Racing Authority (KRA) is the lead horse racing company in the nation, hosting equestrian races and recreational events across venues in Seoul, Busan, and Jeju. During a recent broadcast system upgrade, the Busan branch of the KRA installed two AJA Ki Pro GO digital recorders to streamline failproof primary and backup H.264 recording to central network-attached storage (NAS).
On average, KRA’s Busan branch captures 20 live races per day, eight days each month, ranging from three-to-five minutes per video. To accommodate workflow demands, KRA chose to integrate Ki Pro GO because the team required a reliable, professional-grade recording solution that supported high-quality multi-channel H.264 capture to an internal NAS. Simple setup and operation through Ki Pro GO’s web-based UI and intuitive design enables the team to record pristine HD content from 10 cameras, managed via Sony switchers and a 128×128 router.
The dual Ki Pro GOs capture races directly to the NAS storage volume, allowing the team to easily and instantly share recordings with multiple users for archival and post-production purposes. Recorded footage is edited via NLEs, then distributed immediately for on-demand viewing via web channels, including the KRA website, YouTube, and Kakao TV.
“Ki Pro GO has simplified our recording workflow and saved our team time and money throughout productions,” shares Do Cheol Hee, Manager, KRA Department of Broadcasting. “We can immediately access recorded content via network drives, allowing us to speed through editorial and more rapidly deliver final content.”
