Video Input Connector


This page includes information regarding both the original Makito X1 chassis and the Makito X1 chassis v2. The Network connector and DC IN/IO connector on v2 have been changed in order to meet higher vibration requirements. 

The Makito X1 Rugged video encoder supports a single video input. The port marked CVBS/SDI can support up to 3G-SDI or analog video (NTSC/PAL).  

  • SDI is governed by SMPTE 259M (SD-SDI), 292M (HD-SDI) and 424M (3G-SDI) standards. Each coaxial pin is 75ohm impedance (3-GHz bandwidth).
  • Composite video allows for NTSC and PAL input signals among others.

The requirements for external cable assemblies are as follows (assuming the customer wants to avoid water immersion on them):

BNC Coaxial Cable Assemblies  

The cable assemblies must be waterproof. We recommend using waterproof compression type BNC connectors for better reliability and mechanical properties. We suggest use of a connector such as the Belden p/n FSNS6BNCU with a cable retention force of 40 lbs. per SCTE IPS SP401.

The input impedance must be 75 Ohms.


We recommend that you keep the protective cap on any unused video connectors.
