Montreal — June 7, 2018 — Matrox® Graphics Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of the Matrox Maevex 6120 dual 4K enterprise encoder appliance. Leveraging the same industry-leading core technology as the multi-award-winning Maevex 6100 Series quad 4K enterprise encoders, Maevex 6120 delivers simultaneous dual 4K input capture, stream, and record—with options to stream and record even more channels in different configurations—all on a standard one Gigabit Ethernet network. At InfoComm 2018, Matrox will be demonstrating Maevex’s best-of-class capture, real-time encoding, streaming, recording, decoding, and fully-programmable command-and-control in booth N1322, by the North Hall front entrance.

Industry-leading dual 4K enterprise encoder

Packaged in a convenient, rack-ready, plug-and-play 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 simultaneously. The appliance supports all the popular transport protocols for IP video streams, including Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) that is optimized to deliver high-quality, low-latency streaming over the internet.

Complete reach and control

The Maevex PowerStream Plus software management tool provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network—including Maevex 6100 Series 4K enterprise encoder cards and appliances, as well as Maevex 5100 Series Full HD encoders and decoders. For rapid customization, 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 easily include Maevex functionality into existing or even third-party applications.

“When we launched the Maevex 6100 quad 4K enterprise encoders, we proved we have top-of-the-line real-time encoding technology in the market for balancing reach, performance, programmability, and performance,” says Ron Berty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics Inc. “Maevex 6100 Series products have been integrated into software and services for cloud streaming, multi-platform socialcasting, video management systems with integrations into learning management systems, enterprise video platforms and corporate communications, digital signage, collaboration, and unified AV/IT control rooms. Like its predecessors, the Maevex 6120 is a robust stand-alone solution for the applications covered by Maevex PowerStream Plus, but also great for integration into ecosystems by virtue of its stability, full support for all popular protocols, and well-developed libraries, documentation, and support resources. Our OEMs for this series have also grafted vertically-specialized software into dozens of workflows and created fully-integrated, world-class solutions.”
