Setting Up Streaming Outputs

From the Outputs Detail View, you can create and configure streams, start and stop streaming, and display statistics for streams. When creating a stream, you begin by selecting the content sources and then configure the destination, link, and other streaming parameters.

To configure Output Steaming parameters:

  1. From the Outputs List View, click a link in the table for an existing stream, or click the 

    Plus Icon
    Add button to add a stream.
    The Outputs Detail View opens. 

  2. Enter the stream name and select the sources (Video, Audio, and Metadata, if applicable). See Stream Settings.
  3. To configure multi-track audio, click the 

    Plus Icon
    Add button next to the Audio field and select the next Audio Encoder to add to the stream.

    Audio sources should always be associated with the same video interface for the dual channel SDI encoder. Selecting Analog or SDI audio sources that do not originate from the same video source is not recommended as audio artifacts will result at the decoder. For example, selecting video from BNC1 and audio from BNC2 will cause audio artifacts. Analog audio must be associated with a single BNC input.
  4. To add metadata to the stream, select the Metadata source, and (optionally) select the encapsulation type (Data Carriage).

  5. To stream metadata from multiple sources, click the 
    Plus Icon
    Add button next to the Metadata field and select the next metadata source to add to the stream.
  6. To enable ad insertion, select the appropriate SDI input from the SCTE 35 drop-down menu, as in the following example: 

    For information on setting up ad insertion sources, see Configuring Ad Insertion Sources and adinsertion


    The SCTE 35 field will only appear if this feature is licensed on your Makito X4 encoder. For more information about obtaining licenses, see Managing Licenses

  7. Under Streaming Parameters, select the Protocol.
  8. To configure the Transport Stream settings (for TS over UDP, RTP, or SRT), click TS Settings and enter the values.
    Transport Stream Settings
  9. To configure a stream using the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) streaming protocol, select TS over SRT for the Protocol and then complete the additional fields under Connection and SRT Access Control. See Configuring Secure Reliable Transport (SRT).
  10. Enter the values for the Destination and Link Parameters. 


    The ToS setting must be chosen so as to not interfere with Voice over IP systems and other equipment that may reside on your network.

  11. If dual network interfaces are available, to assign the stream to either interface, select either eth0 or eth1 from the Interface drop-down list.  

  12. To configure SAP network announcements, check the "Transmit SAP" checkbox and fill in the SAP fields. For details, see Session Announcement Protocol (SAP).
  13. Click Apply to apply your changes and start streaming. 

  14. To start or stop streaming, click Start or Stop (as applicable).
  15. To view streaming statistics, click Statistics. For details, see Output Statistics

  16. To return to List View, click Outputs on the sidebar.
