What's New for 1.6

Version 1.6 introduces the following features and enhancements for the Makito X4 Encoder and Makito X4 Rugged Encoder: 

  • Makito X4 Single Channel Encoder: The Makito X4 Encoder series now includes support for a new single channel encoder. The Makito X4 Single Channel provides the same encoding and streaming quality as the original Makito X4 Encoder, but with a single SDI input rather than four. This encoder is optimal for low density deployments. 
    See the Makito X4 Single Channel Encoder Installation Guide.

  • Argon design update with Preview Thumbnails: This version includes an enhanced user interface to provide a more streamlined and intuitive experience. The Argon design includes preview thumbnails of running streams for confidence monitoring. Users can configure the preview thumbnail settings from the Services page.
    See Exploring the Web Interface and Enabling and Disabling Network Services.  

  • Support for 32 audio encoding cores: The number of encoding cores on the Makito X4 Encoder has been increased from 16 to 32. This enhancement allows operators to use video that incorporates all associated audio from their SDI source. 
    See Configuring Audio Encoders.

  • UHD input in SQD mode: The Makito X4 Encoder now supports SQD mode to ingest and encode UHD video signals. This allows users to stream UHD video using four 3G-SDI inputs.  
    See Connect to A/V Sources (in the Makito X4 Encoder Quick Start Guide), Configuring SQD Inputs, and Video Encoder Settings.
