Makito Classic Encoder


Welcome to the documentation for the Haivision® Makito™ Compact HD H.264 Video Encoder. The Makito video encoder delivers high performance H.264 in a compact and cost-effective form factor. The Makito with DVI supports HD (Component Analog or Digital) or computer resolutions (RGB or DVI-D). The Makito-SDI supports SDI, HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, and Composite as well as S-Video (for Standard Definition). The Makito encoder is available as a compact standalone appliance or as mini-blades within rack mountable chassis.

The Makito Air Ruggedized HD/SD H.264 encoder incorporates the performance and power of the standard Makito in a ruggedized chassis coupled with full KLV/CoT metadata capabilities.

Makito Encoder Release 2.4 enables Makito and Barracuda encoders to be managed from the Milestone XProtect video management software (VMS) using the ONVIF protocol and API.

References to the "Makito" can be taken to include both the Makito Classic and Barracuda encoders unless specifically stated otherwise.

This Addendum available below supplements the Makito User’s Guide and details the ONVIF and RTSP support on the Makito. For general information on the Makito, please refer to the Makito Encoder 2.3 User’s Guide.
