Matrox Maevex 5100 Series Shortlisted for 2013 AV Award
Video over IP encoders/decoders extend full-HD-quality 1080p60 video and audio over a standard IP network
MONTREAL — Aug. 15, 2013 —Matrox® Graphics Inc. today announced that the Matrox Maevex™ 5100 Series of video over IP encoders/decoders has been named a finalist for Systems Product of the Year by the judges of the prestigious AV Awards 2013.
Matrox Maevex extends full-HD-quality 1080p60 video and audio over standard IP networks, with minimal bandwidth consumption, at a fraction of the cost of other solutions. The Maevex encoder captures video and audio from a host PC or another media source and seamlessly extends the signals to one or more Maevex decoders via standard networking equipment — switches, routers, CATx cabling. The H.264 encode/decode platform delivers excellent-quality video extension over standard LAN connectivity at user-defined low bit rates for minimal network bandwidth consumption. Matrox PowerStream software is used to remotely discover, manage and adjust the Maevex network and lets administrators conveniently define multiple stream parameters and balance network bandwidth consumption.
Maevex solutions are used to drive dynamic digital signage in such environments as retail, restaurant, transportation, banking and healthcare. They are also used to distribute high-quality video in academic, medical, training, collaborative video wall and control room settings.
“With Matrox Maevex, AV professionals can now distribute full-HD-quality 1080p60 video as never before — much more easily, efficiently, and cost effectively,” said Ron Berty, business development manager at Matrox. “We are honored that the AV Awards judges recognized the technological innovation and commercial success of this new product.”
Winners of the 2013 AV Awards will be announced on 11 October at a ceremony to be held at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
