COMPACT, 4-INPUT RUGGEDIZED MILITARY-GRADE ENCODING APPLIANCE
Designed for the most demanding environments, the Makito X4 Rugged is an ultra low latency, multi-channel encoder that delivers high-quality, AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 video from analog and digital sources at resolutions up to 1920x1080p60 and 3840x2160p60 (4K UHD). Compliance with KLV and CoT metadata standards ensures that interoperability is achieved within a small form factor and all-weather MIL-STD-810G/DO-160 appliance.
Flexible Video from SD to 4K
Ingest video from a broad range of sensors. Ruggedized connectors provide support for three analog composite inputs, four 3G-SDI inputs and one 12G-SDI 4K/UHD input making the Makito X4 Rugged highly versatile and truly future-proof.
Ultra Low Latency, High Quality Streaming
High picture quality at very low bitrates and low latency makes the Makito X4 Rugged ideal for real-time situational awareness. Efficient HEVC encoding (50% bandwidth saving compared to H.264) reliably delivers video over constrained IP networks, line of sight (LOS) and satellite links.
Maximum Processing Power
8 encoding cores for H.264 and HEVC video at SD, HD and UHD resolutions. Multiple encodes can be applied to each input for dissemination to different downstream systems simultaneously, for instance providing one higher quality stream encoded at H264 for LOS links, and another using low bitrate HEVC for SATCOM.
MISB-compliant Key-Length-Value (KLV) and Cursor-on-Target (CoT) metadata transport within an MPEG-2 transport stream ensures interoperability with downstream users. Flexible metadata filtering helps optimize picture quality over highly constrained networks.
