Managing System Status Information

From the Status page, you can view status information about the Makito X4, such as the operating system uptime, along with information about the hardware and software components. You can also take a system snapshot and reboot the encoder, as well as initiate blinking of the Status and TX LEDs (on non-rugged units, to help locate particular encoders in a lab or rack).


Starting v1.4, on non-rugged Makito X4 encoders with the ST 2110 license installed, the first item on the Status page is the system Personality setting. You can use this option to switch between SDI and SMPTE 2110 input. For details, see Configuring ST 2110 Inputs.

The Status page is available to Operator and Guest users as well as Administrators.

To view status information:

  1. Click the 
    Gear icon
     Administration icon on the toolbar. 
    The Administration Settings page opens to the Status page (the following example shows an encoder with the Personality drop-down available):
    The Status settings are read-only, with the exception of the Personality setting. For details, see Status Settings.
  2. To display a snapshot of system information, see Taking a System Snapshot.
  3. To initiate blinking of the status and TX LEDs, click Locate. On the Device Locator dialog, adjust the time allowed to blink the encoder LEDs and click Start.

    The blinking can last from 1 minute to 1 hour; the default is 15 minutes.

    The Locate feature is not available on the Makito X4 Rugged.

  4. To reboot the encoder, see Rebooting the Encoder.
