[JIL] Configuration Panel v.5.5

The Just Control Configuration Panel lists all connected just:in linux engines and available Channels (=Inputs). Within this panel, Engine and Channel settings can be adjusted and all kinds of Presets (Capture, Destination, Naming, Metadata, Markers, Events and Configurations) can be created and modified.

Please beware that setting changes will not be forwarded to all open Just Control Configuration panels, a restart of the Just Control Configuration panel is required to see the changes of another panel. Therefore please make sure that only one Just Control Configuration panel is open, when changing settings (close all other Just Control Configuration panels on different machines before applying configuration changes).


The configuration of just:in linux gets done within the macOS based Just Control application. All settings and devices are managed here. The only required step on the just:in linux server is to power on the server.

Available Settings in just:control

Here’s a quick overview of the settings contained in the tabs within the Just Control Configuration window. In-depth explanation of these options can be found in the course of this user guide.

  • Device: Offers device-specific settings, like IP and Port settings.

  • Capture Presets: Define Codec/container settings and other Capture Preset related options like Audio Mapping, Burnt-In Timecode option or Image/Logo Overlay.

  • Destination Presets: Set your recording destinations here.

  • Naming Presets: Configure the naming of recorded files.

  • Metadata Sets: Flexible templates for metadata elements.

  • Marker Presets: Define custom Markers for use in Adobe Premiere Pro.

  • Events: Pre- and/or Post-recording Events, which can be executed at every start and/or stop recording process.

    • Devices: Within the Devices Tab, Event Devices (Bash Script, Apple Script, HTTP, TCP) can be created. Which can be used later within the Events Tab to create recording events.

    • Events: In the Events Tab, previously created Devices can be used to create Recording Events. These Events can be selected within the Inspector for each Channel.

  • System:

    • Logs & Profiles: Engine, channel and UI logs can be saved here (TOA System Profile).

    • Configurations: Within this “Settings” tab, it is possible to save Engine Configurations. Switching between available Engine Configurations can be done here as well.

  • Activation: Activate your just:in linux server here. You’ll need a valid license to do that.
