Once the just:in linux appliance is wired (power, network, video signals) and set up (network) correctly, it is possible to connect to the just:in linux server and to start with the initial setup. In order to achieve that, following steps are required:
Check the IP-Address, which will be used for the communication between the just:in linux server and the macOS based Just Control application.
Install Just Control on a macOS based system, which has access to the just:in linux appliance (via the network).
Establish the connection to the just:in linux appliance with he macOS based Just Control application.
Normally the just:in linux appliance has multiple network connections. One gets used for communication purposes, such as interacting with just:control and another one will be used for the storage system connection. To access the just:in linux server with the macOS based Just Control application, the IP-Address of the communication port is required (normally “em1” is used for that purpose).
Please contact your network administrator or your local ToolsOnAir reseller or the ToolsOnAir team directly, if you do not know the current IP-Address of the just:in linux server.
Installation (Just Control)
The macOS based Just Control application can be found on the internal just:in linux RAID or by contacting the ToolsOnAir support system.
If there is currently no internet access on your system, copy themacOS based Just Control application from the internal just:in linux RAID to the macOS Applications folder. Therefore mount the internal just:in linux RAID on a macOS based system (“Finder - Go - Connect to Server” or with the Finder keyboard shortcut “Command-K”). Type in the IP-Address of the just:in linux appliance, enter the credentials (User: justin, Password: justin) and select the tools share point. The Just Control application can be found here.
You can access the just:in linux appliances via ssh as well to copy the Just Control application. The internal RAID is mounted at following path.
Go to the macOS Applications folder and open Just Control application.Press the “Login” button to continue.
Enter the IP-Address of the just:in linux appliance and press the “Connect” buttonto start the Setup Wizard.
Choose “Configure device with the detected physical input(s)” and press the “Scan” button to display the available SDI or HDMI inputs.
When working with a streaming input only just:in linux appliance, please choose “Configure device for streaming inputs (e.g. NDI, SRT) with the following format”.
Then select the Video Mode (SDI (AJA)) and the Video Format (1080i25) for the Device Inputs. Enter the Device Name and Channel Name as well as the Default Storage Path. These settings can be changed later again, if needed. As a last step filter the available Capture Presets and select at least one of these presets. To finish the set up process, press the Configure button.
After a few seconds all available inputs will be connected to the multi viewer and if there is valid signal on the SDI inputs, the channel viewer(s) display the video, audio and timecode preview.
Now the channels are ready for recording. Move the mouse into a Channel Viewer and press the Record button to start the recording. Press the same button again to stop the recording.
Select two or more channels to start/stop recording for multiple channels.
