Video Encoder Statistics

The following table lists the Video Encoder statistics (some only available when Status is Encoding): 

Video Encoder Statistic



The current operating status of the encoder, either:

  • Encoding
  • Resetting
  • Await Framing
  • Failed
  • Stopped

Up Time

The length of time the encoder is actively encoding (e.g., 1d22h5m41s).

Input Present

Indicates whether an input signal has been detected from the video source: Yes / No

Input Type(only available when Status is Encoding) The video input for the encoder: For example, SDI, ST 2110, or Composite (Makito X4 Rugged Encoder only).
Input FormatThe input signal detected from the video source.
Input Aspect RatioThe aspect ratio of the video source.
Input Color Primaries

(SDI or SQD Personalities only) Indicates the chromaticity coordinates of the source primaries as specified in terms of the CIE 1931 definition of x and y.

e.g., BT.709, BT.601(625), BT.601(525), BT.2100

Input Transfer Characteristics

(SDI or SQD Personalities only) Indicates the reference opto-electronic transfer function (OETF) of the source picture, or indicates the inverse of the reference electro-optical transfer function (EOTF) of an output linear optical intensity.

e.g., BT.709, BT.601, BT.2100(PQ), BT.2100(HLG)

Input Matrix Coefficients

(SDI or SQD Personalities only) Describes the matrix coefficients used in deriving luma and chroma signals from the green, blue, and red.

e.g., BT.709 BT.601, BT.2100(NCL Y'CbCr)

Output ResolutionThe stream output resolution.
Encoded FramesNumber of encoded frames.
Encoded BytesNumber of encoded bytes.
Encoded Frame RateThe video frame rate per second.
Number of Slices

The number of slices per frame being generated by the encoder. The range is 1 (default) up to 11.

Dropped FramesNumber of dropped frames.
Encoder ResetsNumber of encoder resets.
Encoded BitrateThe video bitrate used for the encoder (in kbps).
Encoder PTSThe current encoder Presentation Time Stamp (PTS) based on a 90 kHz clock: e.g., 0x138a56483
Encoder LoadThe video encoding processor usage of the stream instance in percentage (%).
Scaler LoadPercentage of FPGA scaler capability being used by a given encoder. 
Closed CaptioningIndicates whether Closed Captioning (CC) is Enabled or Disabled on the output Stream.
Extracted CC Bytes(CC must be enabled) Number of extracted Closed Captioning Bytes.
CC Errors(CC must be enabled) Number of Closed Captioning errors.
Extracted CSD Bytes

(CC must be enabled) Number of extracted Caption Service Descriptor Bytes.


CSDs define signaling and announcement of caption services.

Timecode Source(Timecoding must be enabled) The selected timecode source. 

The timecode for the encoded video frame.

Or the system time if user has chosen “system” for the TimeCode Source displayed as (HH:MM:SS:FF) Hours, Minutes, Seconds and Frames.

H.264 or H.265 Profile

The application profile class for the encoder, either:

  • H.264: Main, High, or Baseline or
  • H.265: Main, Main-10, Main-4.2.2 10.
H.265 Tier

The application tier for the encoder, as defined by the HEVC standard, either Main or High.

The Main tier is a lower tier than the High and was designed for most applications. The High tier was designed for very demanding applications (in terms of their maximum bit rate)

H.264 or H.265 LevelThe required level of decoder performance to be able to process the video incoming stream: e.g., 3, 3.2, 4, or 4.2
