Configuring Network Metadata Sources

You can configure the Makito X1 to capture metadata from a user definable network port (up to eight UDP inputs). The encoder can receive either (a) KLV payload encapsulated in UDP or (b) CoT inside UDP that is converted to KLV and then streamed (see CoT/UDP with SPI Message Filtering Based on UID).

You must specify the UDP port on which the Makito X1 will listen for incoming metadata. However, the IP Address is only required for reception of multicast metadata, or if you only want to accept messages coming from a specific sender.

To add a network metadata source:

  1. From the Metadata List View, click the Add Metadata button.
  2. On the Add Metadata panel, type in  a unique name for the metadata source, and select Network from the the Metadata Type drop-down list
  3. Configure the remaining Input, Network, Mission ID Insertion and Security Data Set Insertion sections.

  4. If CoT has been installed, select CoT for the Data Format (under Input).
  5. Select or enter the remaining value(s). For details on the Metadata fields, see Metadata Settings.

  6. (Optional) To set up CoT re-transmission, see Configuring CoT Retransmission.

    Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion

  7. (Optional) To configure a mission ID or security data to replace or insert, see Configuring KLV Metadata Insertion.

  8. To apply your changes and start the Metadata stream, click Add Metadata.

    (as applicable).
  10. To view Metadata statistics, click the Statistics icon
