Dual Channel vs. High/Low Encoding

In addition to encoding single input sources, the Makito X supports dual channel and High/Low encoding. Dual channel encoding features two input sources as two independent encoders. With High/Low encoding, the Makito X encodes a single input source and emits both high and low bandwidth streams simultaneously. Following are some differences between the two in H.264 vs. HEVC encoding: 

Dual ChannelHigh/Low
H.264 EncodingBoth inputs can be up to 1080p60, with no limitations on the coded picture resolution or frame-rate.No limitations on the two resolutions/frame-rates that a single input video source can encode.
HEVC EncodingEach input (BNC1 and BNC2) supports up to a 720p60/1080i30/1080p30 HD-SDI signal.

A single input can be up to 1080p60, but both HEVC encoders must select lower coded picture resolutions/frame-rates.

For example, Input is 1080p60 video, HEVC Video Encoder 4 is set to 1080p30, and HEVC Video Encoder 5 is set to 720p60.
