Network Metadata Sources

You can configure the Makito X4 to capture metadata from a user definable network port (up to eight UDP inputs). The encoder can receive either (a) KLV payload encapsulated in UDP or (b) CoT inside UDP that is converted to KLV and then streamed (see CoT/UDP with SPI Message Filtering Based on UID).

You must specify the UDP port on which the Makito X4 will listen for incoming metadata. However, the IP Address is only required for reception of multicast metadata, or if you only want to accept messages coming from a specific sender.

To add a network metadata source:

  1. From the Metadata List View, click the Add Metadata button.
  2. On the Add Metadata panel, type in a name, and select Network for the Metadata Type. 
  3. Configure the remaining Input, Network, Mission ID Insertion and Security Data Set Insertion sections.

    Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion

  6. (Optional) To configure a mission ID or security data to replace or insert, see Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion.

  7. To apply your changes and start the Metadata stream, click Add Metadata.

  8. To start or stop the stream, click the Start/Stop icon
    (as applicable).
  9. To view Metadata statistics, click the Statistics icon
    . For details, see Metadata Statistics.
