12. just:in Mac Performance Sheet (just:in Engine Mac v3.0)




General information

On the this page you will find performance test results of just:in v3.0. We have tested different machines and different codecs. All of these tests were done with just:in v3.0 and by using one machine for engine and interface. This page is intended for partners and customers of just:in, who needs to evaluate proper hardware for just:in setups. Please note that all data is provided as a guide only based on lab tests, individual results can vary.

  • All Apple ProRes and AVC-I tests have been made using a 10bit Video Mode.
  • XDCAM HD422 and XDCAM EX tests have been made using a 8bit Video Mode.
  • All tests have been made using 8 audio tracks.
  • All tests have been made using the standard preview quality settings. Changing the preview quality can change the number of channels which can be recorded at the same time.
  • The number of channels provided below are the maximum numbers which can be achieved on a certain hardware while no other applications besides just:in are used. We recommend to repeat the tests using typical video sources, as the CPU load can vary depending on the complexity of the incoming signals.
  • When using two machines, one for the interface and one for the engine, the number of recording channels can be increased.


The number of channels as well as the preview quality used by those channels can require a fast machine to decode the previews. Reduce the preview quality of your channels if you see the preview in the user interface dropping frames constantly.
