ToolsOnAir family of products
just:play is part of the ToolsOnAir just: Broadcast Suite; a complete set of powerful video production tools designed to create a professional TV broadcast facility on the proven Apple Macintosh platform.
just:play’s powerful yet intuitive user interface streamlines the integration of video rundown with graphic overlays, such as inserts, tickers or information-based templates.
At any time during the scheduling process, just:play gives you full control of the planning in real-time. Gaps and overlays are easily visible in the timeline, and just:play’s playlist-based design makes it easy to structure the rundown.
just:play supports major broadcast/archive formats, including H.264 and IMX, as well as Quicktime codecs such as ProRes, DVCPROHD, XDCam and Uncompressed. It imports a wide variety of industry standard playlists via XML. just:play will integrate multiple layers of real-time Quartz Extreme graphics created in composition:builder.
just:play also creates as-run logs for channel/billing management, and can incorporate a "gap fill" playlist to cover times when content hasn’t been scheduled.
real time graphics
just:play uses Quartz Extreme to provide real-time interactive graphics. Quartz Extreme graphics can include real-time data from live data sources to provide "live" and up-to-date information (news and stock tickers, weather feed, etc). just:play’s full and seamless integration with composition:builder, ToolsOnAir’s real-time template creation tool, enables pre-produced templates to be dropped into the graphics layer (over the video layer), allowing graphical changes to be carried out during playout and delivered in real-time.
just:play’s robust core engine, just:out, is designed to easily handle continuous 24/7 playout. Schedules can be planned and executed weeks in advance, enabling completely unattended remote operation.
Based on Apple’s Mac OS X, just:play is a fully native Apple Xcode application, compatible with any current Apple Mac Pro or Mac mini hardware (please consult the manual for detailed information). just:play fully integrates into Apple’s Xsan, Tiger Technology’s MetaSAN and Apple’s Final Cut Server technology. Please consult the manual for updates.
