The Haivision Makito Encoder is an H.264 Full HD low-latency encoder & streaming media server that was tested and found compatible with the Hyper Media Player, especially the HMP200 for Full HD rendering.

Setting up streaming from the Makito

Requirements

  • Haivision Makito Encoder (tested with firmware 2.0);
  • Makito 2.0 Quick Start Guide;
  • HMP200 having the latest firmware; (for rendering the encoder output)
  • Web browser (on a PC, tablet or a similar device) to access the encoder web interface;
  • Video & Audio source(s) for the encoder; (for this tutorial a second HMP200 was used as A/V source)
  • 100/1000 Mbps network switch. Other devices present on the network may affect stream performance; always test with an isolated network first.

Steps

  1. Install the Makito, connect the power cable, the network and the A/V Sources, then power it on.
  2. Open a Web browser, type the IP Address for the Makito into the URL address bar and press the Enter key.
    • The Makito comes pre-configured with the following settings: IP Address = 10.5.1.2, Subnet Mask = 255.255.0.0, Gateway = 10.5.0.1 and you might need to temporarily change your PC network configuration to be in the same range to be able to access it.
  3. Log into the Makito Web Interface. Please refer to the Makito User Guide for the default username and password.
    • Once logged in, you can access the device manual / help by clicking Help from the main menu.
  4. (optional step) Configure the network settings on the Makito to have it in your main network:
    1. Click Network from the main menu (at the top of the page) to open the Network Settings page.
    2. Configure the Network, NTP and Timezone settings accordingly. Once done, press the Save button, then the Reboot button.
    3. Return your PC network configuration to the previous state if necessary.
    4. Wait for the Makito to reboot and log in again to its web interface.
  5. Configure the Video settings:
    1. Click System from the main menu and then click Encoder>Video from the sub-menus.
    2. Enable the High configuration for Full HD streaming (on HMP200) and / or the Low configuration for the low bandwidth streaming (on HMP130 / HMP200).

      • Note that the Total Load must remain under 100%!
    3. To apply your changes, click the Apply button. Note that the changes will take effect immediately but will not be saved and will be lost after a reboot.
  6. Configure the Audio settings:
    1. Click on the Audio menu (or click System from the main menu and then click Encoder>Audio from the sub-menus).
    2. Enable the High and /or Low configurations similar to Video Settings.

    3. To apply your changes, click the Apply button. Note that the changes will take effect immediately but will not be saved and will be lost after a reboot.
  7. Configure the RTSP settings:
    1. Click on the RTSP menu (or click System from the main menu and then click Encoder>RTSP from the sub-menus).
    2. Set the High and /or Low configurations (depending on the Video settings) and once done, click on the Save button.

    3. Make sure that the RTSP service is enabled - click Administration from the main menu and then click Services from the sub-menus.
    4. Finally, display the streaming media content using the appropriate URI: rtsp://{Encoder_IP}/high or rtsp://{Encoder_IP}/low.
  8. (optional step) Configure additional streams:
    1. Click on the Streams menu (or click System from the main menu and then click Encoder>Streams from the sub-menus) to view a summary of defined streams for the encoder.
      • The RTSP streams defined above are added into the table when they are active (i.e. they are used by a client) and removed otherwise. The protocol used is "Quicktime".
    2. To add a new stream (or to view an existing stream), click a line in the table.
      • You can specify up to eight streams and up to a maximum of 50 Mbps video bitrate (or 35 Mbps video bitrate with AES and FEC enabled).
    3. To add a multicast TS over RTP stream, configure the options as presented below:

      • The Session Announcement Protocol (SAP) section is optional.
    4. To apply your changes, click the Apply button. Note that the changes will take effect immediately but will not be saved and will be lost after a reboot.
      • The stream becomes active immediately after creation. Press the Refresh button and the rest of the options will be completed automatically. Also the Average Bandwidth for the stream will be displayed (which indicates that the encoder is streaming properly).
      • Use the Stop and Pause buttons to stop and pause the stream. The Still Image option is used for the pausing state.

    5. Click the grid button to get back to the Stream Overview page. The TS over RTP stream has been added to the table along with some basic details and the following actions that can be applied to it: Pause, Stop, Remove and Start (when the stream is paused or stopped).

    6. Finally, display the streaming media content using this address: code>rtp://239.192.3.121:5000/</code>.
