Makito X4 HEVC Encoder: 
The Pinnacle of Fast Transmission

Haivision's Makito X4 Series - as well as their compact cousin Makito X - are designed to transmit 4K/UHD quality video at the lowest end-to-end latency. HEVC compression reduces bandwidth needs, while SRT technology minimizes the impact of packet loss, jitter, and fluctuating bandwidth from unpredictable networks.

The quad-channel configuration of the Makito X4 is ideal for live broadcast deployments that require live cooperation such as field contributions, return feeds, or remote production of multi-camera feeds.

Makito X4 Video Decoder

The Makito X4 Video Decoder is the perfect companion to the X4 Encoder, ensuring low-latency video encoding for 4K/UHD video.
