Extreme Encoding

Haivision's award-winning Makito X encoder transports secure, low latency, HD video over any network at extremely low bitrates. Available as an ultra compact H.264/HEVC SDI or H.264 DVI encoding appliance with optional internal or removable storage, or within a high density 1RU (6 blades) or 4RU (21 blades) chassis. The Makito X is ideal for live, interactive and headend applications.

Exceptional Quality

The Makito X delivers highly efficient encoding, with up to twice the quality within a given bandwidth or savings of up to half the bandwidth for the same quality compared to industry-leading encoders. With stream quality that is on par with broadcast-quality encoders at higher bitrates, the Makito X encoder delivers pristine quality at bitrates lower than 2Mbps - ideal for Internet or satellite transport of video.

Secure Reliable Transport

Haivision's Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology provides end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment based on real-time network conditions to deliver the best video quality at all times. With SRT, you can optimize video streaming across unpredictable networks, like the Internet, by assuring quality-of-service when faced with packet loss, jitter, latency, and fluctuating bandwidth. Available within the Makito X encoders and decoders, SRT offers significant operational flexibility and cost savings over (or compared to) satellite or custom network infrastructures. Learn More.

Storage Options

Safeguard your content, regardless of network conditions. With 250GB of internal or removable solid state drive options and multiple encoding cores, you can stream live, HD video at the lowest bitrates for bandwidth constrained applications, while recording days of HD video directly on the Makito X appliance. Storage options are available on all standard Makito X blade flavors. Learn more about Makito X with Storage.

Low Latency

With an extremely low encoding latency and complete audio and video synchronization, Makito X delivers rich media for your daily communication or mission-critical distribution needs. The Makito X encoder can be paired with the InStream performance player to service desktops, laptops and mobile devices.

Power & Flexibility

With 4 internal encoding engines, the Makito X can encode video at up to 4 different bitrates and profiles for multi-bitrate (MBR) streaming to optimize video distribution. Each engine can be directed to multiple network destinations concurrently - unicast, multicast, TS and RTMP - to serve desktops, mobile devices, set-top boxes, signage players, recorders and streaming servers.

High Density

For remote installations or headends, the Makito X encoder offers highly flexible configurations, available either as an ultra compact appliance with optional internal or removable storage for dual channel requirements or within a 1RU (6 blades) or 4RU (21 blades) chassis. For harsh environments, the Makito X is also available in a fanless chassis designed for high temperatures applications.

Broadcasters need to minimize costs and increase the quality of production. With Haivision, you can leverage terrestrial IP networks and benefit from the speed of Makito encoders and decoders to achieve truly interactive remote communications. Because cost is always a concern, broadcasters can take advantage of readily available public Internet connections and Haivision’s Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology to deliver high quality HD video from any off-site location.
