Key features

Equipped with a high-performance CPU/GPU
Equipped with 4K support, I/O expansion and CANVAS functions as a standard
20xHD, 5x4K outputs
The CANVAS function is equipped as a standard, and supports 8K
High recording capacity of still images and videos (RAM players, clip player)

The new KAIROS Core 1000 (AT-KC1000) mainframe option offers a higher performance CPU and GPU thereby increasing the system’s video processing capacity and expanded HD and 4K inputs/outputs, and enabling the platform to be utilized in a wider range of more complex productions. 

Additionally, the new KAIROS core 1000 mainframe offers 4K support and a CANVAS function as standard feature, and the Version 1.1 software allows less restricted use of the multi-layered video composition, output in high resolution including 8K video.   

With the increase in demand for hybrid remote video production, KAIROS Core 1000 expands RTP/SRT/RTMP streaming from six to eight inputs with two outputs. Furthermore, the platform features an increased recording capacity of video to 64 GB uncompressed RAM player capacity, 180 GB uncompressed clip player capacity and 12 GB of still images can be saved.

Variety of video inputs and outputs available for use

Compatible with various input and output signals

KAIROS fully supports baseband signal (12G/3G/HD-SDI, HDMI, Display Port) and IP packet (ST 2110, NDI®*1, RTP) input and output. In addition to RTP, RTMP, and RTSP, the SRT*2 streaming protocol is supported for superior stability and security. And it is equipped with 8 input channels of Kairos Core 1000 or 6 input channels of Kairos Core 100 and 2 output channels, and each channel can be set to selected protocol.*3 Audio input/output is supported 16 channels each for NDI® and SRT, and 8 channels each for RTMP and RTSP.

*1: NDI® is a new protocol developed by NewTek, Inc. that supports IP video production workflow. NDI® is a registered trademark of NewTek, Inc. in the United States. In this instance, NDI® is used to indicate low latency with high bandwidth NDI®.
*2: SRT stands for Secure Reliable Transport.
*3: For RTSP, only input is supported. Note that RTSP input does not work with the AW-HE130W/K (Discontinued) and AW-HR140 PTZ cameras.

System Integration Example (IP-based)

System Integration Example (SDI-based)

* Deltacast FLEX modules are required for baseband input/output.
* When using Deltacast and ST 2110 simultaneously, the Deltacast port connection will be 4 ports. (AT-KC100 only)

Agile Input Routing expands number of I/O

Agile Input Routing Outline Diagram, Example in ST 2110 for AT-KC1000T

Input/output functions of KAIROS has been expanded and strengthened by the "Agile Input Routing" feature that flexibly allocates GPU I/O capability according to the bandwidth of video source.

For example, up to 64 inputs* and 40 outputs* of 1080i and 720p signal can be connected to on a single mainframe with ST 2110 network.
This allows using in larger scale live productions with more scenes and more input sources.
KAIROS removes input restriction to be connected to a system and realize more efficient use of ST 2110 network and other inputs such as Deltacast, NDI®, SRT and other streaming inputs.

* Input and output totals are on a best-effort basis using the Kairos Core 1000 mainframe and 1080/60i or 720/60p video for all I/O sources. The Kairos Core 100 with the AT-SF002 I/O option offers a maximum 48 inputs and 32 outputs.

*2: NDI®: Max. 2 CH input/2 CH output for both AT-KC1000 and AT-KC100.
*3: RTP/SRT/RTMP/RTSP: max. 8 CH input/2 CH output for AT-KC1000, max. 6 CH input/2 CH output for AT-KC100.

Resolution independent

Standard video formats with different resolutions such as 4K/HD can be mixed and used. I/P conversion of input enables the use of 1080/59.94i and 1080/50i interlaced video inputs/output.
