    Chapter 1: Installation & Setup

    Introduction

    The AJA CamXchange raw capture application is specifically designed to work with the AJA Ki Pro Quad tapeless video recorder. The AJA Ki Pro Quad, when simultaneously connected to a camera and a host computer via Thunderbolt, can be used with the AJA CamXchange application to capture RAW output from the camera.

    NOTE: At this time, only Apple Thunderbolt enabled computers and the Canon C500 camera's RAW output are supported by the application.

    File Formats The AJA CamXchange application creates .rmf Canon RAW files and WAV audio files. The AJA Ki Pro Quad and the CamXchange software offer support for the following formats and frame rates output from the Canon C500 camera:

    • Canon RAW 4096x2160 23.98/24/25/29.97fps

    • Canon RAW 3840x2160 23.98/24/25/29.97fps

  • AJA CamXchange Application v1.1 www.aja.com5

    Features RAW File Capture: Capture sequential RAW files with the .rmf file extension that are compatible with the

    Canon Cinema RAW Development software application. This Canon-supplied software application can be used to process and transcode Canon RAW files.

    WAV File Capture: Capture audio to the WAV file format.

    Camera Control: The start and stop of captures made by the CamXchange application can be controlled by the start and stop commands issued by the Canon C500 camera.

    Software Installation

    3. Once your computer restarts, re-open the AJA CamXchange .dmg and copy the AJA CamXchange application to your Applications folder.

    4. The CamXchange software is now fully installed and ready for use.

    5. Continue to the I/O Connections section below to establish the physical connections.

    I/O Connections

    Follow these steps to connect the Ki Pro Quad, Canon C500, and the Apple Thunderbolt- enabled host computer:

    1. Ensure that all devices are powered off before making your video and data connections.

    2. Connect a 3G-SDI rated cable between the 3G-SDI 1 output connector of the Canon C500 camera and the SDI 1 In connector of the AJA Ki Pro Quad.

    3. Connect a Thunderbolt cable between the AJA Ki Pro Quad and the Apple Thunderbolt-enabled host computer.

    4. Connect a 400MB per second (or faster) Thunderbolt disk array/RAID to the Apple Thunderbolt-enabled host computer.
