Configuring Video Encoders

From the Video Encoders pages, you can configure four or eight (Makito X4R only) independent H.264 video encoders to apply to streams. You can start and stop each video encoder, as well as display statistics for the encoder.

With the Makito X HEVC, you can also configure two (additional) HEVC encoders. The Makito X HEVC supports concurrent AVC/H.264 and HEVC/H.265 video encoding.
