With version 4.x, UHD Playout up to and including 60fps is possible, using qualified Apple hardware. Please consider the following points when configuring a machine for UHD Playout:
UHD playout is supported using a MacPro6,1 (30fps max) or 7,1 (60fps max), or an Apple silicon-based Mac mini (M1/M2) or Mac Studio (Max or Ultra) up to 60fps.
Only the video devices that have been qualified by ToolsOnAir should be used (see chapter Supported Video Devices).
Make sure all cables, boxes, and devices are connected using Thunderbolt 2 or Thunderbolt 3 (recommended).
The faster the Mac, the more functions and a higher video codec quality can be used at the same time.
We recommend using Apple ProRes (up to and including 422 HQ) and qualified H.264 compressed movies.
Although it is possible to run Just Out and Just Control on the same machine, we strongly recommend running Just Control on a separate machine.
Realtime graphics are supported, but especially complex templates must be tested thoroughly before using them on air.
We recommend disabling the Low latency playout in the Advanced Channel Settings of Just Connect.
The output of Closed Captions/OP-47 is not supported currently, as we’re clarifying some issues with the related video card vendor.
It is currently not possible to use an internal method (DSK or Buffered input) to switch to live in UHD.
