Technology innovator Matrox Video has announced the launch of the new Matrox Maevex 7100 Series of single-channel 4K60 AVC/HEVC encoders. Per the company, the two new lower-cost members of the Maevex family of premium video products are ideal for low-latency, high-quality, low-bitrate encoding of single high-resolution HDMI sources for audio and video streaming, contribution and collaboration.
For low-bandwidth applications requiring high levels of compression, Maevex 7100 Series encoders provide high-quality streaming and recording. This is applicable for both motion video and desktop content with a wide range of compression rates, says Matrox.
Per the company, the Maevex 7100 Series comes built with the Matrox Video quality and reliability, and augmented with advanced security features. Thus, the new professional encoders are ideal for use in control rooms, command centers and other mission-critical environments. Moreover, they provide flexibility with support for multiple streaming protocols suited to all network topologies.
Performance and Flexibility
Integrators, administrators and users can choose H.264 (Maevex 7112A) or H.264/H.265 (Maevex 7112H) models. With this, they can enjoy streaming and simultaneous recording with support for five streaming protocols. These include RTSP, MPEG2-TS, RTP, SRT and RTMP. They can increase productivity and ease deployment with the included Maevex PowerStream Plus application and the all-new web-based Maevex Command Center. According to Matrox, the latter is the ultimate tools for configuration, monitoring, and streaming management, no matter the installation size.
Maevex 7100 Series users and IT administrators can avail integrated enterprise-grade security, says Matrox. Here, users can leverage existing security infrastructure with support for Microsoft Active Directory and also receive regular device vulnerability and firmware updates. All updates are authenticated and validated before installation for additional protection, the company states.
In addition, users can securely manage devices with 802.1x network authentication support and execution of IP control communication over the HTTPS protocol. The Maevex 7100 Series supports the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol with AES encryption. This enables secure, low-latency, high-performance streaming on noisy or unpredictable networks.
Matrox states that its Maevex 7100 Series encoders are fanless, small-form-factor, energy-efficient appliances ready for high-density rack mounting or throw-down installation. They offer zero-latency input pass-through for real-time video output. As a result, they empower flexible, simultaneous uninterrupted operation for operator desks, video walls, remote rooms, etc.
Thanks to Matrox Video’s complimentary Maevex SDKs and APIs, users can seamlessly add the encoders to any mission-critical environment. Operators can easily integrate the Maevex 7100 Series with third-party AV systems, Video Management Systems (VMS) and others. TAA-compliant SKUs are also available, says Matrox.
Included, Dedicated Customer Support
As with all Matrox Video products, Maevex 7100 Series encoders include dedicated technical support. This allows users to maintain uptime and productivity in case of operating issues. Moreover, they can gain convenient access to technical support experts to solve problems without additional expense.
“For more than a decade, Matrox Maevex encoders have been an obvious choice for capture and collaboration, streaming and recording, and pro AV applications and digital signage; and they’ve been especially useful in control rooms for health care, military, government, security and beyond,” says Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox Video.
Berty adds, “With the Maevex 7100 Series, our customers can now get AVC and HEVC streaming and recording capabilities in a secure, convenient, single-channel offering at an affordable price point with renowned Matrox Video quality, reliability and ease of use.”
