just:in Mac Performance Sheet (just:in Engine Mac v3.5)

Table of Contents

General information

We have tested different machines and different codecs for performance. All of these tests were done with just:in v3.5, where the Engine and the User Interface are running on one machine. This page is for partners and customers of just:in who need to find the proper hardware for just:in setups. Please note that all data is provided as a guideline based on our internal lab tests. The 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 may change the number of Channels which can be recorded concurrently.
  • The number of Channels provided below are the maximum 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 just:in Engine and one for the just:in User Interface – 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 just:in User Interface is dropping frames constantly.
