Haivision – Makito X1 Rugged Video Encoder


Makito X1 Rugged is an ultra-compact H.265/HEVC and H.264/AVC video encoder for low latency streaming of full-motion video (FMV) and KLV metadata. With dual encoding cores, the Makito X1 Rugged can encode video in H.264 and HEVC simultaneously, providing high quality streams suitable for all downstream systems.

By deploying the Makito X1 Rugged, high quality video can be streamed from all types of platforms over all types of links and networks even when bandwidth is limited.


SWaP Optimized

Lightweight and Portable for ISR

Makito X1 Rugged is available as an ultra compact, rugged appliance for ISR platforms and wearable systems, or as an OEM board for integration with sensors, datalinks and mission computers.

The smallest, lightest and most power-efficient (under 5.5W) ruggedized HEVC/H.265 encoder on the market, the Makito X1 Rugged is ideal for air, ground, manned and unmanned applications.

SWaP Optimized

The smallest, lightest and most power-efficient (under 5.5W) ruggedized HEVC video encoder

Reliable IP Streaming

Network adaptive encoding and hitless failover to ensure non-stop streaming

Dual Encoding Cores

Network adaptive encoding and hitless failover to ensure non-stop streaming

MISB & STANAG Compliant

Metadata is aggregated & preserved in a format that adheres to defense standards


Capable of combining H.265/HEVC and H.264/AVC encoded video with synchronous or asynchronous KLV metadata, Makito X1 Rugged optimizes streaming bandwidth through highly efficient encoding options and selective filtering of metadata parameters. Adhering to MISB and STANAG specifications for video and metadata, Makito X1 Rugged streams provide the compliant imagery and metadata needed to meet mission requirements.


Weighing under 50g, the small, but powerful Makito X1 Rugged OEM video encoder board is ideally suited for integration into an ISR system alongside cameras, mission computers and datalinks, or embedded with robots and small drones.


An intuitive web-based interface enables systems administrators and users to configure and manage a Makito X1 Rugged Video Encoder from anywhere. For managing multiple Makito X encoders and decoders, the AVIWEST EMS element management system can be used to organize and group devices with custom tags, monitor their status in real time, and perform firmware upgrades from a central location.


Secure Reliable Transport

AVIWEST’s Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) technology provides end-to-end security, resiliency and dynamic endpoint adjustment based on real-time network conditions to deliver the best video quality at all times.

With SRT, you can optimize video streaming across unpredictable networks, like the Internet, by assuring quality-of-service when faced with packet loss, jitter, latency, and fluctuating bandwidth.

SRT offers significant operational flexibility and cost savings over (or compared to) satellite or custom network infrastructures.
