The Matrox Maevex line of encoders, decoders and high resolution streaming solutions fill the need for “major streaming and recording horsepower,” according to their business development manager Ron Berty, who showed CI some of the Maevex products at InfoComm 2018.
The Matrox InfoComm 2018 booth tour (as seen in the video above) highlighted three Matrox Maevex products, including:
A quad 4K encoder that simultaneously records and streams. Matrox calls it a complete enterprise-wide streaming and recording appliance.
“This isn’t a ‘stream or record’ device; it’s a multi-streaming, multi-recording device—all in one,” Berty says. More from Matrox:
The plug-and-play Maevex 6150 Quad 4K Enterprise Encoder appliance provides system independence and eliminates the need for additional equipment. Integrating seamlessly with standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks, Maevex 6150 includes a zero-latency pass-through for real-time output of audio/video content on all four 4K inputs.
Built on the open-standard H.264 codec, Maevex 6150 is compatible with all computers, devices, and networks, including the full range of Maevex Series products as well as third-party technologies.
Multi-Chroma sub-sampling delivers 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0 and 4:0:0 options to best balance quality and bandwidth demands of different encoding environments and markets.
This is a dual version of the 6150 4K encoder described above, but with lower price.
“It reduces the price but gives you the same look and feel of the 6150 quad encoder but with dual-channel for where you don’t need 4 streams of if you need multiples not divisible by 4,” Berty says.
The Maevex 6120 will be available in September. Learn more here.
Berty calls the Matrox Maevex 6020 a purpose-based encoder built for use with the Panopto visual management system.
The dual 1080p60 encoder records up to 5 streams of each of the 2 streams for use with VOD and will be available in the second half of 2018. See CI’s Matrox InfoComm booth tour above for more information on the Maevex products.
