Matrox Unveils Maevex 6150 Quad 4K Encoder Appliance

The Maevex 6150 quad 4K encoder delivers industry-leading quad 4K capture plus multiple encodes to stream and/or record at low bitrates

Following the customer, partner, and media enthusiasm seen after releasing the Matrox® Maevex™ 6100 series of multi-stream 4K products, Matrox Graphics is today 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 industry-leading 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.

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.

“The Maevex 5150 encoder and decoder appliances are extremely popular devices in digital signage, corporate communications, and military applications. The Maevex 6150 appliance builds on that success and will allow users with high-density streaming requirements, 4K and general high-quality desktop encoding needs to attain the results they require,” said Ron Berty, business development manager, Matrox Graphics. “Our customers will be excited to discover how easily and flexibly they’ll be able to put 4K streams onto their network—with the existing bandwidth they have available—and under the same software and development umbrella as the Maevex 5100 Series.”

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 NAB 2017 (Las Vegas, NV. Las Vegas Convention Center, Apr. 24-27, Stand: SL 6316).

Matrox Maevex 6150 will be available in Q3 2017. Register to be notified of the latest Maevex updates.
