5. Inspector - Overview (just:in v3.0)

The Inspector is used to select your Capture Settings (such as Naming-Conventions, Metadata-Sets, Capture- and Destination-Presets…). This chapter explains all Inspector options and also shows how the Inspector changes depending on the currently selected Recoding Mode.




Before you are able to use the Inspector it is mandatory that the just:in user interface is connected to a Channel which is configured and running in just:in Engine. Refer to the chapter just:in v3.0 Administrator Manual if you have not yet configured the Channel(s) yet.
