Matrox Maevex 6100 Quad 4K Enterprise Encoder Card

Award-winning Maevex 6100 quad 4K enterprise encoder card

The Matrox® Maevex 6100 quad 4K encoder PCI Express® card is part of the next generation in Matrox’s H.264 AV-over-IP portfolio—the world’s first card to deliver quad 4K input capture and encode, supporting at least four concurrent 4K streams and recordings—simultaneously.

Coupled with Maevex PowerStream Plus software, the Maevex 6100 quad 4K enterprise encoder card delivers reliable industry-leading technology for flexible management of local or remote data, ensuring complete reach and control over the entire network.

The Maevex 6100 card is part of the Maevex 6100 Series, the next generation in AV-over-IP portfolio offerings. Built on H.264, this plug-and-play solution fits seamlessly into existing infrastructures and interoperates with virtually any network device, ensuring high-density content distribution and system scalability. Flexible setup and management of local or remote data comes via complimentary Maevex PowerStream Plus software.

Industry-Leading Technology

Maevex 6100 is the first in the world to drive simultaneous quad 4K/UHD and Full HD capture, encode, stream, and record from a single PCIe card. Benefit from up to 4K/UHD 4:4:4 sub-sampling support plus H.264 capability for best-in-breed encoding—all using standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks.

Matrox’s powerful software supports multi-protocol and multi-bitrate streaming, Chroma sub-sampling, picture-in-picture (PIP) and quadrant composite options, and more. The multi Chroma sub-sampling feature delivers 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0, and 4:0:0 options, to best balance quality and bandwidth demands. Our technology promises unprecedented quality, without necessarily needing a dedicated distribution network; we use existing infrastructure and expand its capabilities.

Flexible Communication

With simultaneous streaming, processing, and recording on all channels, the Maevex 6100 Series allows for working on multiple tasks in multiple settings on a single card—all without sacrificing quality. This powerful appliance can feed on-premises or cloud-based servers and systems to reach internet viewers, push many streams over LAN for local viewers, and record to local or network storage for later editing and viewing, concurrently.

Compressed H.264 technology meets almost every need and requirement for streaming and recording at excellent quality with minimal network bandwidth consumption—including at 4K. It also allows for multiple streams of almost every type of content to be delivered over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks; network contents can then be decoded using virtually any device. Customizable settings on each independent channel provide powerful scaling and deinterlacing to ensure only pristine graphics and video are encoded.

PowerStream Plus software and API

Complete Reach and Control

Discover devices, manage content, access hardware, and monitor all streams from any location on the network via robust Maevex 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 operations by integrating PowerStream Plus features into existing applications or creating new software applications with the PowerStream Plus API and provided source code examples. Parallel processing capabilities allow for conducting different tasks simultaneously within an AV-over-IP environment. The Maevex 6100 quad encoder 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 each network installation.
