Setting Up Streaming

From the Outputs pages, you can create multiple output streams using the defined video encoders, audio encoders, and metadata (if applicable). Each output stream is configured independently. For details see:

From the Outputs pages, you can create and configure streams, start and stop streaming, and display statistics for streams. When creating a stream, you begin by selecting the content sources and then configure broadcasting, destination, link, and other streaming parameters.


There is a limit of 16 streams that are exact duplicates. This refers to streams that have the exact same content sources (i.e., the same encoders and/or metadata sources).

To configure Output Steaming parameters:

  1. From the Outputs List View, click a link in the table for an existing stream, or click the 

    Plus Icon
    Add button to add a stream.
    The Outputs Detail View opens. 


    On the Makito X with Storage, you will see the Streaming and Recording Parameters toggle buttons.

  2. Enter the stream name and select the sources (Video, Audio, and Metadata, if applicable). See Streaming Output Settings.
  3. To configure multi-track audio, click  

    Plus Icon
    Add  next to the Audio field and select the next Audio Encoder to add to the stream.

    Audio sources should always be associated with the same video interface for the dual channel SDI encoder. Selecting Analog or SDI audio sources that do not originate from the same video source is not recommended as audio artifacts will result at the decoder. For example, selecting video from BNC1 and audio from BNC2 will cause audio artifacts. Analog audio must be associated with a single BNC input.

  4. To add metadata to the stream, select the Metadata source, and (optionally) select the encapsulation type (Data Carriage).

  5. To stream metadata from multiple sources, click
    Plus Icon
    Add next to the Metadata field and select the next metadata source to add to the stream.
  6. (Makito X with Storage only) To set up streaming, toggle the Streaming Parameters button to On. This step is not required if your encoder is not a Storage platform because streaming is already enabled.
  7. Under Broadcasting, select the Protocol.
  8. To configure the Transport Stream settings (for TS over UDP, RTP, or SRT), click TS Settings and enter the values.
    Transport Stream Settings
  9. Enter the values for the Destination and Link Parameters. 


    The ToS setting must be chosen so as to not interfere with Voice over IP systems and other equipment that may reside on your network.

  10. To configure a stream using the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) streaming protocol, select TS over SRT for the Protocol and then complete the additional fields under Connection and SRT Settings. See Configuring Secure Reliable Transport (SRT).
  11. To configure a static image to display when the stream is paused, select a Still Image file. (Image files must have been previously uploaded for the encoder. To upload image files, see Configuring Still Image Streaming.)
  12. To configure SAP network announcements, check the “Transmit SAP” checkbox and fill in the SAP fields. For details, see Session Announcement Protocol (SAP).
    Outputs Detail View (SAP Settings)
  13. (Makito X with Storage only) To set up a recording session, toggle the Recording Parameters button to On. See Configuring Recording Outputs.
  14. If you only want to create a streaming session, click Apply now to apply your changes and start streaming. 

  15. To start, pause, or stop streaming, click Start, Pause, or Stop (as applicable).
    Outputs Detail View (Statistics button)
  16. To view streaming statistics, click Statistics. For details, see Streaming Output Statistics

  17. To return to List View, click Outputs on the sidebar.
