Upgrading from Version 2.x (AJA Video Devices)

If the setup which should be upgraded is using AJA Video Devices then the Channel settings need to be redone. This is because just:in v3.0 recognizes AJA devices in a different way. Follow these steps to upgrade:

  • Delete the config.xml.
  • Start the just:in Engine.
  • Reconfigure the Engine accordingly to your needs.
