High Quality Ingest on Apple hardware: just:in mac 5.1 - RELEASED!
just:in mac 5.1 is our macOS-based client-server ingest solution designed to capture SDI, HDMI, NDI®5, multicamera, and VTR sources using industry-standard Crash, Batch, or Schedule recording modes. With the latest release of just:in mac 5.1, we have laid the foundation for current and future Apple hardware and software versions and thus confirmed our repeated commitment to the Apple platform. just:in mac 5.1 is now macOS Monterey (12.x) certified and fully qualified to run natively on the new Apple Silicon architecture. The combination of this highly efficient and powerful new system architecture from Apple and our professional ingest solution offers many advantages and benefits to both our customers and our future innovations. Version 5.1 will still support macOS Catalina (10.15.x) and macOS Big Sur (11.x) to ensure full deployment flexibility and safeguard our customer’s investment in our solutions.
New with version 5.1 of just:in mac is the highly requested HDR metadata support (HLG and PQ transfer characteristics) for Apple ProRes 422 HQ / MOV recording workflows in combination with either AJA or Blackmagic Design video input devices. Based on the valued feedback of our customers and partners, we further improved our Schedule mode by moving the Calendar section from the Channel Settings into the Channel Inspector, making it even more efficient and flexible to use.
To increase operational reliability, the ability to lock parts of the just:control interface was extended by introducing the ability to lock the complete user interface to prevent any unintended user interactions.
By unanimous request, a well-known feature from older just:in mac versions, namely “LTC over Audio In” has found its way back into just:in mac version 5.1. This handy feature allows you to use a Line in USB adapter to sync all the recording channels with an external LTC timecode source over an audio input and facilitates the workflow also for multicamera ISO-recording use.
In combination with Sonnet Technologies' new DuoModo Expansion Systems, just:in mac version 5.1 is the perfect solution to capture multiple HD and one UHD channel(s) on a single Mac mini M1, when using a qualified container/codec combination. 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 or Blackmagic Design, and for dual networking needs, adapters such as the Sonnet Solo or Presto 10 GbE cards. This highly efficient hardware and software bundle is the ideal solution for budget-sensitive, yet professional broadcast ingest operations. The Sonnet Technologies DuoModo Expansion System is available as a desktop or rack-mount enclosure.
