Configuring Logo Overlays

Administrators and operators can configure the Makito X4 to display a graphic file as a logo overlay in the encoded video. One logo may be configured for each physical video input interface, i.e.:

  • Four logos on the Makito X4 SDI Quad-Channel Encoder,
  • Four logos on the Makito X4 Rugged Encoder,
  • One logo on the Makito X4 Single Channel Encoder. 

You can configure the size, transparency, and position of the logo. These settings will be saved in the current preset configuration. For more on presets, see Saving and Loading Presets


Logo overlays are available in DEFENSE personality only, with a license upgrade of 1.7 or higher.
To configure the Makito X4 Encoder personality, see Managing System Status Information
