High Quality Ingest on Apple hardware: just:in mac 5.0 - OUT NOW!
just:in mac 5.0 is our macOS-based client-server ingest solution designed to capture SDI, HDMI, NDI®, multicamera, and VTR sources using industry standard Crash, Batch, or Scheduled recording modes. With the latest release of just:in mac 5.0, we have laid the foundation for current and future Apple hardware and software versions and thus confirmed our repeated commitment to the Apple platform. In addition to the already known standard features of just:in mac, version 5.0 introduces the highly requested NDI® input source and Avid DNxHD/DNxHR codec support (in the MXF OP1a container) as well as full compatibility with macOS Catalina and macOS Big Sur. Native Apple Silicon support will follow with a timely update, once all needed third-party components have qualified for Apple Silicon-based computers.
In combination with Sonnet Technologies' new Duo Modo Expansion Systems, just:in mac is the perfect solution to capture up to 4x HD channels on a single Mac mini. The Sonnet DuoModo Expansion System brings our customers the flexibility to combine the xMac mini module, with up to an optional 16 TB of internal storage and the Echo III module that can accommodate PCIe 3.0 SDI video device cards from AJA Video Systems or Blackmagic Design, and for dual networking needs, adapters such as the Sonnet Solo or Presto 10 GbE cards. This highly efficient hardware setup makes the just: in mac/Sonnet appliance the perfect solution for budget-sensitive yet professional broadcast ingest operations.
The Sonnet Technologies Duo Modo Expansion System is available as a desktop or rack-mount enclosure.

Combined Workflow Solutions: MCR and PCR Ingest / Playout Bundles
Based on the success of our stand-alone solutions, we have remained true to our "TV Channel in a Box" philosophy and have worked on the further development of our MCR and PCR workflow solutions, which combine ingest and playout on one machine while controlling both application instances via our unified user interface just:control. Our team is happy to discuss your requirements and propose a tailored solution that builds on existing software components thus offering a future-oriented investment protection.
just:play/live v.3.x and just:in multi v.5.0 can now run on a single mac, sharing the same Blackmagic Design video device. Combined with the xMac mini Server rackmount enclosure from Sonnet Technologies and Apple’s Mac mini (Intel now and M1 to follow), this compact MCR solution is the perfect fit to run a single playout channel (video + graphics) including live-input and one ingest channel on the same hardware. All controlled by our new unified user interface called just:control to provide the best user experience.
