With version 5.x, UHD Playout up to and including 60fps is possible, using qualified Apple hardware. Please consider the following points when configuring a machine for UHD Playoutplayout:

  • UHD playout is supported using an INTEL-based Mac Pro 2019 (MacPro7,1), or an Apple silicon-based Mac mini (M1/M2), Mac Studio (Max or Ultra) or MacPro14Mac Pro 2023 (Mac14,8), up to 60fps.

  • Only the video devices that have been qualified by ToolsOnAir should be used (see chapter Chapter 2.3 Supported Video Devices (v.5.0)).

  • Make sure all cables, boxes, and devices are connected using Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 (recommended).

  • The faster the Mac, the more functions and a higher video codec quality can be used at the same time.

  • We recommend using Apple ProRes (up to and including 422 HQ) and qualified H.264 compressed movies.

  • Although it is possible to run Just Out and Just Control on the same machine, we strongly recommend running Just Control on a separate machine.

  • Realtime graphics are supported, but especially complex templates must be tested thoroughly before using them on air.

  • We recommend disabling the Low latency playout in the Advanced Channel Settings of Just Connect.
