Quad 4K Encoder Card
Experience Flexible 4K Streaming & Recording
Maevex 6100 Quad Encoder Card
The Matrox Maevex™ 6100 quad encoder PCI Express® card is the next generation in Matrox’s H.264 AV-over-IP portfolio—the world’s first card to deliver quad 4K input capture, plus multiple encodes to stream and/or record four or more channels simultaneously.
Coupled with Matrox PowerStream Plus™ software, the Maevex 6100 card delivers industry-leading technology providing flexible management of local or remote data, ensuring complete reach and control over the entire network.
The Matrox Maevex 6100 quad encoder card delivers industry-leading 4K/UHD and Full HD multi-channel capture, encode, and stream AV-over-IP. Built on H.264, the world’s most common codec, this plug-and-play solution fits seamlessly into existing infrastructures and interoperates with any device on the network, ensuring high-density content distribution and system scalability.
Matrox is the first in the world to drive quad inputs and four or more streams simultaneously from a single PCIe card. With the Maevex 6100 card, benefit from multiple channels of 4K/UHD and Full HD capture, plus real-time encode, stream, and record capabilities. Combine multiple cards to support high-density encoding of up to 68 channels of 4K capture and real-time encoding and streaming within a single system. Matrox’s powerful advanced hybrid streaming (AHS) features provide multiple picture-in-picture (PIP) and picture-by-picture (PBP) composite options, multi-protocol and multi-bitrate streaming, and more. Our technology promises unprecedented quality you expect, without the need for a dedicated distribution network; we help you use the infrastructure you have and expand its capabilities.
With simultaneous streaming, processing, and recording on all channels, Maevex 6100 allows for transmission of live or recorded content to and from multiple video-on-demand platforms. The H.264 universal codec lets you encode on multiple channels at low-bitrates for excellent quality and minimal network bandwidth consumption—even at 4K; you can then decode network contents using any device. Customizable settings on each independent channel provide powerful scaling and deinterlacing to ensure only pristine graphics and video are encoded.
Complete Reach and Control
Manage content, access hardware, and monitor all streams from any location on the network via robust Matrox PowerStream Plus software. Installed on the network, PowerStream Plus renders Maevex cards and appliances entirely configurable, manageable, and updateable via on-demand access to any network-connected computer. Easily tailor your operations by integrating PowerStream Plus features into existing applications or creating new software applications with the modifiable Maevex PowerStream Plus API and provided source code examples. Parallel processing capabilities let you conduct different tasks simultaneously within an AV-over-IP environment. The Maevex 6100 card delivers an unlimited number of streams through third-party technology like streaming media servers, content delivery networks (CDNs), and others, thereby guaranteeing complete control over your network installation.
