Before You Begin

  1. Unpack the box and visually inspect the package contents for any evidence of shipping damage. [See the Important Notice document in the box for a list of contents.]
  2. In addition to the contents of the box, you may need to have the following items available:

    • Four #8-32 or M4 screws for mounting (not included)
    • Haivision cabling kits (see Product Numbers), or your own custom cables (see Makito XCR Encoder Pinouts)

    • A laptop with Web browser, Telnet client, and video player (e.g., VLC)
  3. In order to be able to view the output from the encoder, make sure you have a decoding device or video player that supports the UDP Transport Stream format.


If the device is to be installed in a remote location (e.g., on a utility pole, or on a mobile platform), we recommend that you follow the instructions in this Installation Guide to perform an initial setup in a "staging" environment, such as a lab or control center. Once the device has been set up and is demonstrated to be operating normally, you can then move it to the remote location.


Before installing the device, please refer to Safety Guidelines (in the Makito X Encoder User's Guide). Only connect the unit to a compatible power source. If an electrical fault occurs, disconnect the unit and contact Haivision Technical Support. Never try to force the connections when setting up the system as this may damage the unit.


Hot surface. Avoid contact. The chassis can achieve a surface temperature 95°C in poorly ventilated environments, and may cause personal injury if touched.
ATTENTION Surface chaude. Eviter le contact. Le châssis peut atteindre une température de surface de 95°C dans des environnements mal ventilés et peut causer des blessures en cas de contact.


This unit is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area can be accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security.
AVERTISSEMENT Ce produit est destiné à être installé dans une zone d'accès restreint. Les zones d'accès restreint sont protégées par un mécanisme spécifique, par une serrure et une clé, ou par tout autre dispositif de sécurité.


The device is equipped with a supercapacitor (with a 30-minute charge time) that will keep time for approximately 3 weeks. However, it has no real-time clock (RTC) battery, and in the event of a power loss, the system date and time settings may be lost. For any application with a requirement for standalone synchronized system timing (or derived time codes), an NTP server should be used to provide time and date synchronization. For details, refer to Configuring Date and Time (in the Makito X Encoder User's Guide).
