Configuring Logo Overlays


The maximum file size for logo and still image files is 10 MB.

You can configure the Makito X to display a graphic file as a logo overlay in the encoded video. One logo may be configured for each physical video input interface, i.e.:

  • Two logos on the Makito X SDI dual-channel #S/B-292E-HDSDI2 (BNC1 and BNC2);
  • One logo on the Makito X DVI #S/B-292E-DVI or the Makito X SDI single-channel #S/B-292E-HDSDI1.

The image file can be uploaded in either BMP, JPEG, PNG, or GIF format. The image file will be converted to Haivision's image overlay (.oly) format.

The logo position can either be relative (top left, top right, centered, etc.) or absolute (positioned at the exact X and Y coordinates specified).

To configure a logo overlay:

  1. On the Streaming page, click Media on the navigation bar and Logos on the sidebar. 
  2. The Logos page opens, displaying the list of logo image files that have been uploaded for the encoder.
