Ruggedized Performance Encoding

A rugged COTS encoder, the Makito™ XR is designed for the most demanding Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) applications and built to match the physical and mission-critical requirements of Full Motion Video (FMV). The Makito XR High Profile encoder supports up to 4 HD streams or 2 1080p60 full HD streams, can output two different bitrate (resolution/framerate) H.264 streams simultaneously, and allows for scaling and frame rate settings to be adjusted on-the-fly.

Exceptional Quality

Makito XR delivers highly efficient encoding with up to twice the quality within a given bandwidth compared to industry-leading encoders. With exceptional stream quality, essential for making mission-critical decisions and identifying objects, the Makito XR delivers pristine quality at bitrates lower than 2Mbps - ideal for the most constrained networks and satellite transport.

KLV / CoT Metadata

The Makito XR encoder supports industry standard MISP-compliant Key-Length-Value (KLV) metadata transport within the MPEG-2 transport stream. Metadata is captured via serial port, Ethernet or the SDI-VANC embedded input stream. KLV may be transported using the MISB 0604.2 defined asynchronous or synchronous formats. KLV and video synchronization is achieved by leveraging the MPEG-2 Transport Stream presentation time stamps (PTS) allowing receivers to re-synchronize the metadata with the video. The Makito XR also supports Cursor-on-Target (CoT) metadata. CoT is converted into standard KLV format prior to being multiplexed in the MPEG-2 transport stream.

Built to Last: Air, Ground or Sea

Designed for easy integration on both manned and unmanned platforms, including aerial, naval, and ground vehicles, the XR is a single Line Replaceable Unit (LRU) that will not require major system upgrades to existing platform designs. Tested against the highest international standards for ruggedization, including MIL-STD 810G, it can survive shock and vibration from any mobile application, including law enforcement, military, and underwater vehicles deployed by oil and gas companies.

Low Latency

Makito XR encoders support mission-critical streaming video communication challenges, where real-time decisions require the lowest possible latency at the best possible quality. Makito XR delivers H.264 video up to 1080p60 with metadata and extremely low end-to-end latency when coupled with a Makito X decoder or Haivision Instream Mobile players.
