[JIM] Events v.6.5


just:in mac features Event Presets that can perform different recording or notification tasks, as well as trigger or control qualified hardware devices.

With this useful workflow addition, one could, for example, start a backup recording on qualified hardware recorders such as the Ki Pro from AJA or the HyperDeck from Blackmagic Design or create and make REST API calls to 3rd party systems effortlessly.

The already well-known ability to trigger Bash Scripts (previously named “Tasks”) is of course still available and has been further improved since v.6.0.

  • As UNIX shell scripts can work on a very deep system level, ToolsOnAir does not take any responsibility for improperly written shell scripts by end-users.  

  • Events (based on Bash Scripts) may limit the performance of the Just In Engine application. When using this feature, always test it thoroughly before going into production or critical environments. Contact your ToolsOnAir VAR or create a support ticket in ToolsOnAir’s support system if you need any assistance.


Open the Just Control Configuration panel, select a Device, and switch to the “Events” tab.

To apply any changes, you need to unlock the Just Control Configuration panel first.

  1. Devices & Presets Tab: you can switch between the “Devices” and “Presets” tab. Event Devices have to be created first, to create Recording Events. Devices represent the connection to a hardware device (such as an AJA Ki Pro, KUMO, or Blackmagic Design HyperDeck / Videohub), enable the ability to create Events based on Apple Scripts or Bash Scripts or create the connection to Iconik. Events get triggered by the Just In Engine application, once selected within Just Control (Channel Inspector).

  2. Event Devices: Area for adding, removing or loading Event Devices. List of Event Devices that are currently available for the selected Device. Use “Add”, to create a new Device, “Save” to save an Event Device and “Load” for importing an Event Device.

  3. In this area, all available Event Devices can be saved to a text file and such file can be loaded/imported here as well.


just:in mac v.6.x supports the following Devices:


Open the Just Control Configuration panel and select a Device, open the “Events” tab, and switch to the “Presets” tab.

At this point, Event Presets, based on the already created Event Devices, can be created. An Event Preset can be a single Event (e.g. a Script), multiple Events (e.g. multiple Scripts), or a combination of Events (e.g. an AJA Ki Pro command and a Script). To create an Event Preset, press the “Add Preset”-button. Then a new window appears, where a Preset name can be set, and the actual Event Preset can be created (based on the existing Event Devices).
