just: in is a network-based ingest solution for all broadcast needs. Ingest single-camera, multi-camera, satellite feeds or VTR setups with crash, batch and scheduled recording.


Seamlessly integrating into the production workflow of any TV station or post-production facility just:in records multiple video sources directly into Apple QuickTime, AVFoundation QuickTime, MXF OP1a (including XDCAM EX, HD, HD422 and AVC-Intra), Avid OP-Atom MXF and MP4 containers. Unlike other software design philosophies just:in unites single and multi-channel ingest into one flexible and expandable client-server ingest solution.

Reliability & Flexibility

just:in is built for 24/7 deployment and easily adapts to the shifting requirements of time-sensitive broadcast environments. Featuring fallback destinations for out-of-storage or network connection loss scenarios and safe-write logic in the event of a power outage, just:in ensures that your recordings are safe and secure. Customizable presets allow operators to quickly switch between commonly used setups. The ability to use two or more concurrent capture instances also makes just:in the ideal ingest solution for loop recording. This significantly speeds up editing in your NLE, without prior conversion in MAM systems. Using the integrated XML writer engine operators can either customize XML export by writing XML files with descriptive metadata to accompany QuickTime and MXF generated files or by writing the desired metadata set directly into the QuickTime file. Additionally, Avid Media Composer users recording into an Avid OP-Atom MXF container will enjoy an automatic project name creation function allowing addition of a “Project” field into the metadata set.

Product Deployment

just:in is a client-server solution. With the built-in video and audio previews and the single/multi-channel control panel, the ingest operator controls all available ingest machines from a single interface.
