Makito X4 is a highly-secure, ultra low latency HEVC and H.264 video encoder, featuring exceptional video quality, next-gen performance, SRT streaming, and the highest available 4K UHD and HD encoding density. The Makito X4 is ideal for live broadcast contribution, remote production, enterprise, and defense applications.
4K UHD, HD, and HDR
Video encoder for low latency, broadcast quality streaming
The new Makito X4 offers power, quality and flexibility for real-time HEVC/AVC video encoding in a compact appliance or rack-mountable blade. Designed for the most demanding live video applications, the Makito X4 can ingest full 4K UHD or up to four HD inputs with 10-bit pixel depth, 4:2:2 chroma subsampling, and high dynamic range (HDR) video using PQ or HLG transfer functions.
Extremely robust and always reliable, the Makito X4 offers 8 powerful encoding cores that can securely and simultaneously deliver low latency multi-bitrate streams over any IP network. And with native support for the SRT protocol, the Makito X4 is ideal for streaming over unpredictable networks such as the public internet.

ULTRA LOW LATENCY STREAMING
Up to 8 encoding cores can encode and stream HEVC and H.264 with very low latency, which makes the Makito X4 ideally suited for interactive video applications such as live interviews as well as field contribution, backhaul, and return feed confidence monitoring. With Haivision’s unique Stream Sync technology, the Makito X4 can also stream multiple camera feeds over IP for synchronized multi-cam playback enabling remote production and REMI workflows.
HIGH DENSITY HEVC ENCODING
The Makito X4 is a compact, portable appliance ideal for use on mobile platforms and in remote locations. For centralized deployments Makito X4 blades offer the highest channel density available, 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 UHD, HDR, and IP-based production workflows, ensuring that your live video workflows address today’s critical needs, and are flexible enough to adapt to your future low latency video encoding requirements.
An intuitive web-based interface enables systems administrators and users to configure and manage a Makito X4 Video Encoder from anywhere. For managing multiple Makito X encoders and decoders, the Haivision EMS element management system can be used to organize and group devices with custom tags, monitor their status in real-time and perform firmware upgrades from a central location.
POWERED BY SRT
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.
SRT offers significant operational flexibility and cost savings over (or compared to) satellite or custom network infrastructures.
