Audio/Video Interfaces

Following is a description of the available Makito X audio/video interfaces:

SDI Video and Embedded Digital Audio Interface

The Makito X SDI video interface consists of either one or two 75 Ω BNC connectors.

Makito X SDI Dual-Channel Video Interface (#S/B-292E-HDSDI2)

SDI Dual-Channel Video Interface

Makito X SDI Single-Channel Video Interface (#S/B-292E-HDSDI1)

SDI Single-Channel Video Interface

The BNC connector(s) are used for Composite (CVBS), SD-SDI (Serial Digital Interface) and HD-SDI video input signals. It is also a 3G-SDI capable interface supporting 1080p 50/60 fps video @ 3Gbps.

In addition, the BNC connector(s) support auto-detection of the HD resolution and embedded digital audio.


Be sure to use an HD video-capable RG-6 coaxial cable such as the Belden 1694A up to 300 feet. Otherwise, the video signal may be too attenuated and the encoder will not sync on it.

DVI Video and Embedded Audio Interface

The Makito X DVI video interface consists of a single DVI-I connector.

Makito X DVI-I Video Interface (#S/B-292E-DVI)

DVI Video Interface

The DVI-I connector supports the following inputs:

  • Component Analog video (Y,Pb,Pr / RGBHV)
  • Component Digital video (Y,Cb,Cr / DVI)
  • SD and HD video
  • Computer graphics
  • Two channels of DVI-I digital audio

Only one input format – either digital (DVI-D) or analog (DVI-A) – is encoded at a time.


The Makito X encoder supports EDID resolution capabilities negotiation.

If the content is HDCP copy-protected, the stream will not be encoded.

Analog Audio Interface


The Analog Audio interface is the same for both the Makito X DVI (#S/B-292E DVI) and the Makito X SDI (#S/B-292E-HDSDI2).

Analog Audio Input

The Makito X analog audio interface consists of a single 8-pin Mini-DIN connector used for two-channel balanced/unbalanced analog audio input (one stereo pair) and a mono audio output (for Audio Talkback).

An adapter is required to interface with the audio port. An RCA cable adapter for unbalanced audio is included in the package. An adapter for balanced audio may be ordered from Haivision. 

For the pinout, see Audio Connector Pinout.
