just:live is designed to meet the fast-paced, time-critical demands of Live TV broadcast, including news, sports and talk shows. just:live streamlines the playout of your on-air videos and real-time graphics in any live situation while maintaining full control over the attributes of movies and graphics files.
With its intuitive, customizable, timeline-based interface, just:live enables broadcasters to manage the playout of videos, multiple layers of real-time graphics and router control/GPI events in a single interface.
just:live´s architecture enables the playout control of single or even multiple channels using one interface. Furthermore our multi-operator approach empowers multiple users to control a single station concurrently.
just:lives´s powerful user interface provides an unlimited, frame accurate preview of all video items with the option to set new in- and out-points and the ability to split clips for commercial insertion.
With just:live´s integrated timeline, operators can easily monitor the progress of currently playing clips, while simultaneously building a rundown sequence which can be operated by a single mouse-click. Each clip can have its own unique finished action, such as play next, cue, reload or loop.
just:live allows to overlay the pass-through live signal with movies (with alpha channel) and real-time graphics without the need for an external video switcher by using the real-time input from AJA video devices.
Up to six streams of real-time graphics templates can be added independently to your Live feed or QuickTime movie. For a traditional broadcast workflow, just:live delivers key and fill functionality (depending on the video hardware) to overlay graphics using an external switcher.
Video Quality & Real-Time Graphics
just:live delivers the high-quality video and audio playout you expect from a professional broadcast environment by using Apple´s pristine ProRes codec or uncompressed video.
just:live´s integrated playout engine provides supreme quality and back-to-back playout of mixed container formats, codecs, aspect ratios, pixel sizes and field orders.
On top of that, interactive real-time graphics can be used to display livesource data (i.e. news tickers, stock exchange, weather feeds). The tight integration with composition:builder – ToolsOnAir´s graphics template creation tool – enables pre-produced templates to be dropped into a graphics layer (on top of the video layer), allowing content changes to be made during playout and delivered in real-time.
