The Matrox Maevex 6120 dual 4K enterprise encoder appliance is now shipping, according to an announcement this week from Matrox Graphics.

Leveraging the same capture and real-time encoding technology as the Matrox Maevex 6150 quad 4K encoder, Maevex 6120 “delivers simultaneous dual 4K capture, stream, and record—with options to stream and record even more channels in different configurations—all on a standard one-gigabit Ethernet network,” according to the company press release.

“The powerful standalone appliance is ideal for a variety streaming and recording applications in corporate, education, digital signage, military, government, control rooms and more,” according to the Matrox announcement.

Dual 4K Enterprise Encoder

Packaged in a rack-ready form factor, Maevex 6120 “features ground-breaking encoding capabilities that can easily feed cloud-based servers to reach internet viewers, push many streams on-premises over the LAN for local audiences and record to local or network storage for later editing and viewing—all concurrently,” according to the Matrox press release.

“The appliance’s ability to also stream multiple resolutions, bitrates, and protocols—including Secure Reliable Transport (SRT)—at the same time, significantly offloads or eliminates cloud transcoding operations and costs for organizations,” according to the company announcement.

Increased Reach and Control

The included Maevex PowerStream Plus software management tool “provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network—including all Maevex 6100 Series 4K enterprise encoders and Maevex 5100 Series Full HD encoders and decoders,” according to the Matrox announcement.

The PowerStream Plus API for Windows and Linux and lower-level REST API are also available for integrators and developers looking to create personalized Maevex control applications. These APIs can be used to include Maevex functionality into existing or even third-party applications.

“Maevex 6120 and 6150 dual and quad 4K enterprise encoders provide best-in-class high-performance, low-bitrate, low-latency encoding appliances interoperable with virtually any third-party hardware, software, or service,” says Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox Graphics Inc.

“And now with Maevex 6120, this provides customers with even greater flexibility to meet a wider range of requirements, either as a better fit for single- or dual-input streaming and recording applications, or by mixing and matching with Maevex 6150.”
