Haivision Makito X4 Video Encoder


The ultra-low latency Haivision Makito X4 video encoder (https:/ provides the quality, flexibility, and reliability needed for live broadcast contribution. The Makito X4 is highly portable, extremely secure, and field-proven by thousands of users worldwide, including customers Fox Sports, NASA and Microsoft, and is available in a wide variety of configuration options making it suitable for broadcast, enterprise, government, and defense live streaming workflows.

The Haivision Makito X4 powers workflows with ultra-low latency video streaming, even over unpredictable networks like the public internet, making it ideal for mission-critical, contribution, interactive, and collaborative decentralized workflows. It offers support for low latency SRT, RTP, and UDP unicast and multicast mode, and slice-based encoding for extremely low latency video streaming. The Haivision Makito X4 provides optimized quality for any network by providing complete control of video encoding settings, enabling users to optimize picture quality based on network performance and deployment needs, whether it’s high bitrate broadcast workflows or bandwidth constrained applications.

Users can simultaneously stream content to different types of downstream receivers with a variety of bitrates, codecs, and resolutions and a single video source can be encoded with multiple bitrates. Key features of the Haivision Makito X4 video encoder include:•Broadcast-Quality Video: Encode in resolutions up to 4k UHD with 4:2:2 chroma subsampling and 10-bit picture quality. •Ultra-Low Latency: Ideal for when latency must be kept as low as possible for live television or mission-critical applications. •Powerful and Flexible: High performance with 8 encoding cores for multi-camera video encodes and multi-bitrate workflows •Secure and Reliable: Extreme reliability and enterprise-grade security when transporting live video across IP networks including the internet. •High-Destiny Video Processing: Highly flexible deployment options from ultra-compact appliances to high-density chassis solutions make it ideal where saving space is crucial. •Stream Sync: Keep multiple camera feeds synchronized over IP.

The Haivision Makito X4 comes in modular blade and chassis design options, making it ideal for high-density video applications within space constrained locations. It can be combined with Haivision Makito X4 video decoders, with central management, to create a complete end-to-end ultra-low latency streaming solution.
