4K UHD and HD Video Encoder

UHD and HD Video Encoder for Low Latency, Broadcast Quality Streaming

Secure, low-latency, broadcast quality video encoders for live sports and news
broadcasters, corporate video producers, and mission critical ISR deployments.

Haivision Makito X4 is a highly versatile real-time HEVC/H.265 and
AVC/H.264 video encoder available as a compact standalone appliance or as a rackmountable
blade. Designed for the most demanding live video applications, the Makito X4 can
ingest up to four 1080p50/60 HD inputs or a full 2160p50/60 4K UHD video source
with 10-bit pixel depth, 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, as well as up to 32 channels
of digital audio. Robust and reliable, the Makito X4 offers 8 powerful encoding
cores that can securely deliver simultaneous low latency multi-bitrate streams over
any network, including the public internet.


4K Broadcast Quality Video Encode live video in HD or 4K for streaming over
IP networks. Whether encoding with 8- or 10-bit pixel depth, the Makito X4 delivers
excellent picture quality, even at low bitrates, making it ideal for a broad range
of live video applications. For workflows where color precision is needed, the Makito
X4 offers 4:2:2 chroma subsampling to ensure that color fidelity can be maintained,
and artefacts prevented, in downstream workflows.


Ultra-Low Latency Streaming Up to 8 encoding cores can encode and stream HEVC
and H.264 video with very low latency, which makes the Makito X4 ideally suited
for interactive video applications such as field contribution, live interviews,
return feed confidence monitoring as well as streaming synchronized camera feeds
for remote productions.


High Density HEVC Encoding Processing video from multiple cameras is challenging
when physical space is limited. The Makito X4 is a compact, easily portable
appliance making it perfect to deploy in remote locations and on mobile
platforms. When used in conjunction with Haivision rack-mountable enclosures, the
Makito X4 offers the highest channel density available, giving facilities up to
84 HD or 21 UHD video sources within a single 4RU rack module.


Flexible and Future Proof With a powerful encoding engine built on top of
a programmable platform, the Makito X4 addresses a wide range of live video applications
today and tomorrow, including 4K and IP-based production workflows, ensuring that
your encoding workflows address today’s critical needs, and are flexible enough
to adapt to your future infrastructure requirements.


Secure Content Encryption, Reliable Streaming the Makito X4 can encrypt video streams with up
to 256-bit AES key lengths using the SRT protocol, which is critical when sharing
valuable content over the internet. Moreover, to ensure reliable and continuous
streaming, even when network conditions are unpredictable, the Makito X4 Encoder
adapts to fluctuating network bandwidth in real-time, limiting packet loss and
ensuring uninterrupted high-quality video.
