Pairing the Encoder with Haivision EMS

Haivision EMS (Element Management System) allows simple management of Haivision-only devices. To get started, you enable the EMS service on the Makito X Encoder and then pair the encoder with Haivision-EMS.  This allows the EMS to communicate with the encoder, for example, to monitor the connection status.

To manage a Makito X Series device through Haivision-EMS, the device must first be discovered and paired with the system.


For device discovery to work, mDNS must be enabled on each of the Makito X devices you wish to pair.

To pair the Makito X device with Haivision-EMS:

  1. On the Services page, toggle EMS on.
  2. On the EMS/Cloud Services panel, enter the passcode (copied and pasted from Haivision EMS).


    On a new system, the EMS Address and Port are blank. When a pairing code is pasted in, the address and port are automatically filled in to reflect the IP address and port contained in the pairing code. 

  3. (Optional) You may change the EMS Address and Port in order to override the defaults extracted from the paring code, for example, to accommodate network security requirements.
  4. (Optional) Increase the value in the Keep Alive field to ensure the Makito X can be paired with EMS and remain connected during file transfer.  

    The Keep Alive value is also filled in when the pairing code is pasted in. "Keep Alive" is the time interval in seconds in which the device will ping the EMS server to maintain its connection. 

  5. Click Pair.
    This initiates the pairing and communication with the EMS server.

To unpair the Makito X device from Haivision-EMS:

  1. In the EMS/Cloud Services panel, click Unpair.

    The unpairing takes effect immediately.
