Table of Contents


On the just:in Engine Linux server appliance you can find:

  • The basic Linux installation (CentOS 7.x)
  • Video card driver (AJA or BlackmagicDesign)
  • just:in Engine (TOA Media Engine = tme)
  • just:connect (TOA just:connect = tjc)

just:in Engine Linux and just:connect start automatically when the Linux system has been booted. If they are configured properly they can immediately communicate with a just:in User Interface.

Network Settings

By default both network ports are set to DHCP (also the IPMI port is set to DHCP).

Blackmagic Firmware Updater

Only update the Blackmagic driver if you have issues with the system.

In some situations the Blackmagic video card needs a Firmware update. Verify if the card is working properly with the installed driver version by using the following command:
