HD-SDI or ST-2110 Metadata Sources

The Makito X4 auto-detects the hardware setup of the encoder and automatically creates either SDI KLV metadata source(s) or SMPTE ST 2110-40 metadata sources. 

You can also create additional HD-SDI or ST-2110 sources linked to the same video input which can be configured to different decimation settings (as well as security reclassification and mission ID override). For example, you can have one high bitrate stream sending out all the KLV as well as a lower bitrate stream that uses KLV decimation.


Only progressive scan formats are supported (i.e., 1280x720p and 1920x1080p).

The Makito X4 Encoder can capture only 1024 bytes of KLV metadata per video frame.

To configure HD-SDI or ST-2110 metadata sources:

  1. From the Metadata List View, click the Settings icon 
     on the metadata panel.
    The Metadata Source Detail View expands. 

  2. To create an additional source, from the Metadata List View, click the Add Metadata button.
  3. On the New Metadata Source dialog, type in a unique name for the metadata source.

  4. Select HD-SDI or ST-2110 for the Metadata Type,

  5. Select the Input from the drop-down list.

    Decimation Settings:

  6. To configure frame-decimation to reduce the bandwidth used by the metadata service, select either a decimation factor or reference encoder from the Decimation drop-down list. See “Decimation” (under "HD-SDI Sources") in Metadata Settings.
  7. Select or enter the remaining value(s). For details on the Metadata fields, see Metadata Settings.

    UAS KLV Tag Filtering: 
  8. To filter MISB 0601 metadata tags to eliminate unwanted KLV information, see UAS KLV Tag Filtering.

    Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion: 
  9. To configure a mission ID or security data to replace or insert, see Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion.

  10. To apply your changes and start the Metadata stream, click Apply, or, if creating an additional source, click Add Metadata. 

  11. To start or stop the stream, click the Start/Stop
     icon (as applicable).
  12. To view Metadata statistics, click the Statistics icon
    . For details, see Metadata Statistics.
  13. To retract the Metadata Detail View, click the Settings icon
