Makito XCR Encoder
Makito XCR Encoder
The Makito™ XCR encoder is a compact and ruggedized military-grade H.264 encoder designed for deployment in the most demanding ISR environments. Makito XCR combines the unrivaled low latency and performance of Haivision’s commercial Makito X encoder in a completely ruggedized MIL-STD-810G/DO-160G compliant form-factor with full KLV/CoT metadata support






  • H.264 video up to 1080p60 with metadata
  • 4-input and Multi-bitrate streaming
  • Extremely low latency (55ms)
  • NATO STANAG 4609 Compliant
  • Fully Ruggedized DO-160 / MIL-STD-810G / MIL-STD-1275 design

Powerful Encoding

With up to 4 inputs and 8 encoding engines, the Makito XCR carries forward the strong heritage of the Makitofamily with features designed to address the most demanding video applications. The excellent picture quality at low bandwidth and the lowest end-to-end latency in the industry makes the Makito XCR encoder ideally suited for mission-critical ISR applications.

Designed for Demanding Ground and Airborne ISR Applications

The Makito XCR addresses the most demanding Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) video challenges by delivering H.264 video with metadata. This encoder can support two or four input video channels; in four channel mode, each channel can support up to 1080p30, and in two channel mode, each channel can support up to 1080p60. The Makito XCR encoder can support constrained data links found in the most challenging operating environments by reducing the spatial resolution of the video without affecting image aspect ratios. Additionally, two different bitrate (resolution/framerate) H.264 streams can be produced simultaneously from the same source. The Makito XCR allows for scaling and frame rate settings to be adjusted on-the-fly, should controls be established from data rate sensing systems.

KLV Metadata

Makito XCR supports industry standard MISB-compliant Key-Length-Value (KLV) metadata transport within the MPEG-2 transport stream. Metadata is captured via serial port, Ethernet or the SDI-VANC embedded input video. KLV may be transported using the MISB 0604.2 defined asynchronous or synchronous formats. KLV and video synchronization is achieved by leveraging the MPEG-2 transport stream Presentation Time Stamp (PTS) allowing receivers to resynchronize the metadata with the video. Additionally, the Makito XCR supports Cursor-on-Target (CoT) metadata. CoT is converted into standard KLV format prior to being multiplexed in the MPEG-2 transport stream.
