Matrox Maevex PowerStream Plus Software and APIs

Complete reach and control

Maevex PowerStream Plus is the most advanced AV-over-IP software management tool on the market, a game-changer in terms of software and system capabilities. This powerful software application provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network topology through an easy-to-use interface.

Boasting compatibility with the complete Maevex family of products—Maevex 6100 Series, as well as Maevex 5100 Series—PowerStream Plus delivers remote control over all network-connected units from one central location. Operators gain flexibility over all network connections—zoom out for a macro-level overview of the entire Maevex infrastructure, and drill in on particular units or groups to fine-tune parameters for each stream within a given device.

PowerStream Plus offers three levels of implementation to best suit any need:

Easy deployment with PowerStream Plus

PowerStream Plus offers plug-and-play functionality and full access to the complete feature set immediately after download. This complimentary software renders all Maevex Series encoders and decoders entirely configurable and manageable from a single easy-to-use user interface, that is accessible from anywhere on the network.

  • Simplify set-up with auto discovery of any Maevex unit on the subnet, and easy manual addition for units outside the subnet.
  • Control what features users can access by establishing credentialed profiles for any system operator.1
  • Fine-tune encode/decode parameters and adjusts bitrates for any stream.1
  • Stream via multiple protocols (RTP, RTMP, RTSP, MPEG2.TS over UDP, SRT over UDP).1
  • Record or schedule recording to a shared network drive or NAS; access content on-demand at a later time.1
  • Group encoders and/or decoders and identify groups by name; adjust settings for multiple selected units and configure to the same parameters.
  • Manage inputs and chroma sub-sampling pixel formats.1
  • Choose preconfigured composite outputs such as multiple Picture-in-Picture (PiP) and quadrant composite options.1
  • Manage and save favorite configurations and apply to other devices.1
  • Adjust, scale, and crop content to suit different outputs and ensure pristine visuals for all transmissions.
  • Deliver Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMPv2) support for network administration and management.1
  • Access 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.
  • Balance bitrate and compression demands to optimize performance.2
  • Switch channels or streams at each decoder without need for additional equipment.2
  • And much more…

The PowerStream Plus application is free to download and is compatible with both the Maevex 5100 Series and Maevex 6100 Series. The separate Maevex Firmware Updater tool also ensures the most current version of the software is always running and allows for system-wide or chosen deployment from a single software tool. PowerStream Plus is compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 10 (64-bit), Server® 2016, Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit), and Windows Server 2008 R2.
