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.

Video Encoders List View

To open the Video Encoders List View:

  1. Click Streaming on the sidebar, and select the Video Encoders tab. 
    The Video Encoders List View opens.

    The Video Encoders List View displays the status, Name, Input format, Resolution, Codec (Algorithm), and Bitrate for each video encoder.

  2. From here, you can perform the following tasks:

    • To view or modify the video encoder Name, Input, and Detailed Settings, click the Settings icon 

       on the video encoder panel. See Video Encoder Settings

    • To view or modify the video encoder statistics, click the Statistics icon

      on the video encoder panel. See Audio Encoder Statistics and Video Encoder Statistics.

    • To change the video encoder status, click the Start/Stop icon

      (as applicable) on the video encoder panel.

    • To change the status for multiple video encoders, check the check-boxes on each video encoder panel and click the Start or Stop buttons (as applicable) that appear above the list. To apply your changes, click Apply.
