Configuring Serial Metadata Sources


The Makito X auto-detects the hardware setup of the encoder and automatically creates the source if the serial port is connected.

The Makito X4 Rugged automatically creates the Serial metadata source if the COM Port Mode is set to Metadata.

You can configure the Makito X SDI to extract either KLV or CoT metadata packets from the serial port. You must specify the Data Format, and for CoT metadata, the Max AirCraftSPI Delta.

To configure the Serial metadata source:

  1. From the Metadata List View, click the link for the Serial metadata source (i.e., the first line in the table).
  2. On the Serial Source Detail View, type in the Name for the source.
    SerialCOT Metadata Source

  3. If CoT has been installed, select CoT for the Data Format (under Input Settings).
  4. Select or enter the remaining value(s). For details on the Metadata fields, see Metadata Settings.
  5. (Optional) To set up CoT retransmission, see CoT Relaying.
  6. (Optional) To configure a mission ID or security data to replace or insert, see Mission ID/Security Data Set Insertion.
  7. To apply your changes and start the Metadata stream, click Apply.

  8. To start or stop the stream, click Start or Stop (as applicable)
  9. To view Metadata statistics, click Statistics. For details, see Metadata Statistics.
  10. To return to the List View, click Metadata on the sidebar.
