Press Release: ToolsOnAir Launches New Version 3.0 of its just:live/just:play solutions and just:store 36 models.

Vienna, Austria, April 2, 2021 – ToolsOnAir today unveiled version 3.0 of its acclaimed playout solutions just:live and just:play featuring many improvements and additional functionalities requested by customers and in line with current industry standards, as well as new just:store 36 models to complement its broadcast-optimised storage solution portfolio.

What’s New in just:live and just:play version 3.0:

The new version 3.0 of ToolsOnAir playout solutions just:play and just:live has been partially re-written to accommodate the advantages of macOS Catalina and ensure readiness for future macOS versions to come. Amongst many usability improvements, version 3.0 will feature full SDK support for qualified AJA and Blackmagic Design devices and introduce just:control as the new main user interface in order to unify the control user interface for both ingest and playout solutions. The first incarnation of version 3.0 will run on Intel-based Macs and support Apple Silicon M1 once all third-party components have been updated accordingly.

“The development efforts for version 3.0 of our playout solutions were concentrated on improving the user experience by unifying the control interface for all ingest and playout applications and elevate the core code basis to cope with current and future macOS released, in order to secure our current and future customer’s investments in our technology for years to come” says Georg Deisting, Senior Product Manager Playout solutions at ToolsOnAir.

New just:store 36 models:

After the amazing feedback about our new just:store version 4.0 and taking into account the many inquiries we have received to provide a 36-bays storage solution, we have taken this demand as an opportunity to extend our just:store solution range with new just:store 36 models.

“With up to 4GB/s sequential data throughput our customers can profit from a much faster RAID speed to connect even more play-out and/or ingest channels to the same storage. Using the same 4RU chassis as for the just:store 24, we have added additional twelve bays on the backside of the chassis while maintaining the same form factor” said Tobias Gotthard, Product Manager of just:store.

The new just:store 36 models are immediately available for purchase via the worldwide ToolsOnAir reseller channel.
