MONTREAL — 12 September 2017 —Matrox® Graphics Inc., a world leader in high-efficiency video encoding, today announced the immediate public availability of their latest product, the Matrox® Maevex 6150 quad 4K enterprise encoder.
With industry-wide interest and anticipation since product details were released at NAB 2017, the Maevex 6150 dramatically increases the potential encoding density of a stand-alone appliance—the first in the world to deliver quad 4K input capture and encode, supporting a total of four concurrent 4K streams and recordings. This makes Maevex 6150 the ideal appliance to simultaneously stream on premises, stream to the cloud, or record for distribution later.
“The density we offer is unlike anything available on the market today,” said Ron Berty, Maevex product manager, Matrox Graphics. “This isn’t a ‘stream or record’ device; it’s a multi-streaming, multi-recording device—all in one. When we talk about Maevex 6150 we’re really talking about major streaming and recording horsepower.”
The plug-and-play Maevex 6150 quad 4K enterprise encoder appliance provides system independence and eliminates the need for additional equipment. Integrating seamlessly with standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks, Maevex 6150 includes a zero-latency pass-through for real-time output of audio/video content on all four 4K inputs.
Built on the open-standard H.264 codec, Maevex 6150 is compatible with all computers, devices, and networks, including the full range of Maevex Series products as well as third-party technologies. Multi-chroma sub-sampling delivers 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0 and 4:0:0 options to best balance quality and bandwidth demands of different encoding environments and markets.
“In the past five years, we’ve defined and refined what it means to encode video,” noted David Chiappini, Matrox Graphics’ vice president of research and development. “Today we can move multiple 4K desktop-quality videos at extremely low latencies over standard networks to any endpoint. This device is a disruptor in the world of AV over IP—it packs a lot of punch in one appliance, and reinforces the value of developing technologies on an interoperable platform like H.264.”

Harness the Power with Maevex PowerStream Plus

In terms of management, the Maevex PowerStream Plus AV-over-IP management application provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network—including Maevex 6150 appliances and the Maevex 6100 PCIe® quad 4K encoder cards, as well as Maevex 5100 Series Full HD encoders and decoders. For those looking for customized control, the PowerStream Plus API grants integrators and developers command-level access to build their own Maevex control application or to integrate Maevex functionality in third-party applications.
The Maevex 6150 quad 4K encoder appliance delivers an unlimited number of streams through third-party technologies like streaming media servers, and content delivery networks (CDNs), thereby guaranteeing ample stream and VOD reach and performance.
