_Connect X1 Network and A/V Sources

To connect the encoder to the network and A/V sources:

  1. Remove the protective caps from the encoder's connectors.

  2. Connect the encoder's Network port to the IP network using the Ethernet/Factory Reset breakout cable (shown following): 

  3. Connect the encoder's CVBS/SDI video input to your video source, referring to the above image.

  4. (Optional) Connect the encoder's DC In & I/O port to your audio source(s) using the Power/Audio/Serial breakout cable (shown following).

  5. (Optional) If you have a KLV or CoT source that uses RS-232 or RS-422, connect the encoder’s DC In & I/O port to the metadata source or to the serial port of a computer using the power/audio/serial breakout cable.

    The DC In  & I/O port may be used to ingest KLV/CoT, as a management port or as pass-thru for camera control.


    The Reset button provides two options:

    • If you press and hold the button for less than 4 seconds, the system resets and loads the last saved "startup" configuration. If no configuration was previously saved as the startup preset, the default settings prevail.
    • If you press and hold the button for more than 4 seconds, the module performs a complete factory reset. It clears all of the previously configured settings, including IP, streams and encoder configurations.

  6. (Optional) To capture analog audio, connect the encoder’s Audio/Serial connector to your audio source(s) using the the audio/serial breakout cable, shown in the previous step.


    As of Release 1.1.1, the Makito X1 Rugged supports two (2) input channels of analog audio. To configure analog audio, see Set Up a Test Stream.
