What's New in just:in linux (5.0)

Additional codec/container support

just:in linux version 5.0 can now be used in Avid environments as the new version adds supports for the Avid DNxHD and DNxHR codecs in the MXF OP1a container.

These new codec options extend the already impressive container and codec range and provide the same and well-known stability and performance, as previous just:in linux versions. The existing Capture Presets options, like the Burnt-In-Timecode or Audio Mapping feature, can be used with DNxHD and DNxHR as well.

Additionally, just:in linux users can work with AVI or MPEG-TS containers and support for Uncompressed 4:2:2 frames recording has been added. Capture Preset features, like Burnt-In-Timecode, Audio Mapping or the new logo overlay feature, can be used with these new option as well.

Image/Logo Overlay for Capture Presets

With the new “Overlay logo” option for Capture Presets, just:in linux users can use a custom image, which will be used as an overlay, like a corner logo, for their recordings. This is useful for Proxy recordings or workflows, where operators want to mark separate recorded files of specific channels.

Full NDI® Support

just:in linux version 5.0 can receive multiple channels of video and audio from any NDI® compatible device in SD and HD. The NDI® integration provides the same functionality for channel inputs as it does for traditional SDI sources.

SRT Support (Secure Reliable Transport)

just:in linux version 5.0 supports multiple channels of video and audio from any SRT compatible source. The SRT integration provides the same functionality for channel inputs as it does for traditional SDI or HDMI sources.

UHD2/8K Support

The new UHD/4K just:in linux appliance enables the possibility to record UHD2/8K content as well. Apple ProRes/MOV is the currently supported recording format.

Markers for Adobe Premiere Pro

This new feature within just:in linux enables the user to set Markers during a recording or ingest session, these markers can be seen within Adobe Premiere Pro directly in the timeline and/or viewer. Such Markers can be used for all kind of sport recordings, such as soccer or football or any recording where the operator needs to mark highlights, scenes or specific actions for the post-production team to find seamlessly. With Marker Sets, users can define different Marker types for their different recordings. Markers are available for input signal types such as SDI, HDMI, NDI and SRT.

Video Encoder Threads Setting

The Video Encoder Thread setting in just:in linux version 5.0 brings more flexibility, when it comes to multi-channel and multi-format setups, where users can adjust the CPU access of channels to provide more CPU power for single UHD/4K channels and to lower the CPU access for HD or SD channels or for channels, which are only recording proxies and therefore do not have such performance needs.

Automatic Output Conversion

Based on the well-known just:in linux Capture Presets logic, it is now possible to convert the incoming signal (SDI, HDMI, NDI or SRT) to the given frame rate and resolution settings of the selected Capture Preset(s).

User and Template Management

In just:control (the control application of the just:in linux solution) you can now login as a specified user and select a previously saved multi-viewer layout template to speed up your ingest operations.

Web-based Management UI for the Appliance

just:in linux version 5.0 now features a web-based appliance management user interface to significantly simplify the setup of appliance server parameters such as network interface, SMB share point and Users and Groups settings. The new management UI also displays important information such as overall system health, CPU usage, network bandwidth and running services.
