Matrox Announces Maevex 6150: Quad-4K Capable Encoding Appliance

Following the release of the Matrox Maevex 6100 series of multi-stream 4K products, Matrox Graphics is unveiling an all-new multi-4K capable stand-alone encoding appliance. The Maevex 6150 quad 4K encoder appliance affords the full feature set of the Maevex 6100 quad encoder PCI Express card, delivering quad 4K capture plus multiple encodes to stream and/or record at low bit rates.

Offering four or more channels simultaneously, the Maevex 6150 provides an all-in-one, dual density form factor with the additional IO befitting an appliance; the quad encoder appliance allows top-quality 4K streaming & recording functionality, enhanced with zero-latency pass-through. With flexible encoding administration options, the Maevex 6150 can be easily programmed and controlled with the included robust Matrox PowerStream Plus software, managed via custom applications using the PowerStream Plus API, or started/stopped directly on-device with designated on-appliance buttons.

Value added Maevex 6150 features:

  • Integrate 4K streaming and recording seamlessly into workflow, with per-input, zero-latency pass-throughs providing content to local workstations in real-time.
  • Preview media through a composited DisplayPort output display to ensure all content appears exactly as intended before transmission.
  • Find device IP and multiple stream addresses, system information, and other key information on the on-device LCD screen; allowing for swift operation and troubleshooting without need for a separate display.
  • Operate without a dedicated system; six on-appliance buttons allow commands (start/stop streaming and recording) to be executed directly on-device in instances where software access is limited.
  • Safeguard content integrity with three integrated USB connectors to preserve content to connected mass storage.
  • Encode and autosync HDMI and/or analog audio inputs, with support for whatever AV content streaming your installation requires.

Matrox will be demonstrating the capabilities of the Maevex 6150 quad encoder appliance at the 2017 NAB Show, in Las Vegas.
