Video Input Connectors

The Makito X4 Rugged video encoder supports four (4) video inputs. The port marked SDI1 can support input up to 6G/12G-SDI. The ports marked CVBS/SDI support up to 3G-SDI or analog video (NTSC/PAL).  

  • SDI is governed by SMPTE 259M (SD-SDI), 292M (HD-SDI) and 424M (3G-SDI) standards. Each coaxial pin is 75ohm impedance (3-GHz bandwidth).
  • Composite video allows for NTSC and PAL input signals among others.

The requirements for external cable assemblies are as follows (assuming the customer wants to avoid water immersion on them):

BNC Coaxial Cable Assemblies  

The cable assemblies must be waterproof. We recommend using waterproof compression type BNC connectors for better reliability and mechanical properties. We suggest use of a connector such as the Belden p/n FSNS6BNCU with a cable retention force of 40 lbs. per SCTE IPS SP401.

The input impedance must be 75 Ohms.


We recommend that you keep the protective cap on any unused video connectors.
