just:in mac is a macOS-based client-server multichannel ingest solution that offers Crash, Gang, Batch, and Schedule Recording from SDI, HDMI, NDI®5, VTR, and multicamera sources. It unites Single- and Multichannel Ingest over SDI, HDMI, and IP (NDI®) into MOV, MXF, and MP4 containers into one flexible and expandable macOS application. just:in mac consists of two applications, which can either be installed on a single machine or can get distributed on multiple macOS machines. The applications are called:
Just In Engine.app
which will be installed in the specific Application Folder of the corresponding and supported macOS system. Additionally, the Just Control application has a Configuration Panel (“Just Control Configuration”), which is used for all Channel and Engine-related settings.
The Just In Engine application has access to the specific Video Hardware Devices (AJA/Blackmagic Design) and/or NDI® streams, and is responsible for the encoding processes and for writing the video and metadata files to the chosen destinations. Once started, it runs in the background, as all settings can be configured within the Just Control application. The Just In Engine application can be run on the same machine as the Just Control application or on a separate macOS machine.
The Just Control application is the versatile single/multichannel control application for both our ingest and playout solutions, with built-in video and audio previews and a feature-aware inspector to enable the operator to control all available ingest and playout channels from a single user interface.
The Just Control Configuration Panel lists all connected Just In Engines and available Channels (=Inputs). Within this panel, the Engine and Channel settings can be adjusted and all kinds of Presets (Capture, Destination, Naming, Metadata, Events) can be created and modified.
