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 Settings from the sidebar, and select the Status tab. 
    The status page opens (the following example shows an encoder with the Personality drop-down available):

    The General Status settings are read-only, with the exception of the Personality setting. For details, see Status Settings.
  2. To change the encoder Personality, click the Personality drop-down menu, and select SDI, SQD, or ST 2110.

    Changing the personality of the encoder requires a reboot to take effect. To reboot from here, click the Reboot button at the top of the page. For more information, see Rebooting the Encoder.
  3. To display a snapshot of system information, click the Snapshot button at the top of the page. For more information, see Taking a System Snapshot.
  4. To initiate blinking of the status and TX LEDs, click the Locate button at the top of the page. 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.

  5. Scroll down (when applicable) to configure User Preferences. For details, see User Preferences
