Configuring HD-SDI Metadata Sources

The Makito X1 auto-detects the hardware setup of the encoder and automatically creates the source(s) if SDI video is connected. 

You can also create additional HD-SDI sources linked to the same video input which can be configured to different decimation settings (as well as security reclassification and mission ID override). For example, you can have one high bitrate stream sending out all the KLV as well as a lower bitrate stream that uses KLV decimation.


Only progressive scan formats are supported (i.e., 1280x720p and 1920x1080p). 

The Makito X1 can capture only 1024 bytes of KLV metadata per video frame.

To configure HD-SDI metadata sources:

  1. From the Metadata List View, click the link for the HD-SDI metadata source.
    The HD-SDI Source Detail View opens.
    HD-SDI Metadata Source Detail View

  2. To create an additional HD-SDI source, from the Metadata List View, click the 
    Plus Icon
    Add button.
  3. On the New Metadata Source dialog, select HD-SDI for the Metadata Type and click Continue.
    New Metadata Source Dialog (selecting HD-SDI)

    The Create New Metadata Source page opens.
  4. Type in the Name for the source.

    Decimation Settings: 
  5. To configure frame-decimation to reduce the bandwidth used by the metadata service, select either a decimation factor or reference encoder from the Decimation drop-down list. See “Decimation” (under "HD-SDI Sources") in Metadata Settings.
  6. Select or enter the remaining value(s). For details on the Metadata fields, see Metadata Settings.

    UAS KLV Tag Filtering: 
  7. To filter MISB 0601 metadata tags to eliminate unwanted KLV information, see Filtering UAS KLV Metadata Tags.

    Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion: 
  8. To configure a mission ID or security data to replace or insert, see Configuring KLV Metadata Insertion.

  9. To apply your changes and start the Metadata stream, click Apply.

  10. To start or stop the stream, click Start or Stop (as applicable).
  11. To view Metadata statistics, click Statistics. For details, see Metadata Statistics.
  12. To return to the List View, click Metadata on the sidebar.
