Configuring Video Encoders

From the Video Encoders pages, you can configure up to eight video encoders to apply to streams. Each encoder can be configured independently and assigned to multiple outputs to support multi-bitrate streaming. You can start and stop each video encoder, as well as display statistics.

The Makito X4 supports concurrent AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 video encoding.


On systems licensed for SMPTE ST 2110 input with the Personality set to ST 2110, the available inputs for video encoders are ST 2110 essences. For more information, see Configuring ST 2110 Inputs.
