New Software, Firmware and API Now Available for Matrox Maevex H.264 Encoders/Decoders
The ability to capture, encode and record MP4 files to NAS or a shared network drive at resolutions up to Full HD 1080p60 with zero-latency pass-through of the video and audio signals gives IT administrators a low-cost, high-performance recording solution for medical, legal, transportation, military and surveillance applications.
Failsafe playback ensures that pre-recorded digital signage content will automatically play on screen in the event of a lost network connection that interrupts streaming from a Maevex encoder — blank screens are eliminated.
The RS-232 conduit allows communication with a 1-to-1 bidirectional link between encoder and decoder and enables third party control software connected to the encoder to communicate commands and confirm execution on downstream devices. For example, displays connected to the decoder can be turned off to extend lamp life.
User-definable RTSP addressing lets users conveniently list and better manage video stream destinations by configuring port and path selection.
DPMS monitor enablement lets users take advantage of the energy saving mode on DPMS displays when no stream is detected at the decoder.
