Matrox Expands AV-Over-IP Maevex 6120 Dual 4K Enterprise Encoder

Matrox Graphics announced the launch of the Matrox Maevex 6120 dual 4K enterprise encoder appliance. Leveraging the same technology as the Maevex 6100 Series quad 4K enterprise encoders, Maevex 6120 delivers simultaneous dual 4K input capture, stream and record — with options to stream and record even more channels in different configurations — all on a standard one Gigabit Ethernet network.

Maevex 6120 features encoding capabilities that can easily feed cloud-based servers to reach internet viewers, push many streams on-premises over the LAN for local audiences and record to local or network storage for later editing and viewing — all simultaneously. The appliance supports all the popular transport protocols for IP video streams, including Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) that is optimized to deliver high-quality, low-latency streaming over the internet.

The Maevex PowerStream Plus software management tool provides complete reach and control over the entire Maevex network — including Maevex 6100 Series 4K enterprise encoder cards and appliances, as well as Maevex 5100 Series Full HD encoders and decoders. For rapid customization, the PowerStream Plus API for Windows and Linux and lower-level REST API are also available for integrators and developers looking to create personalized Maevex control applications. These APIs can be used to easily include Maevex functionality into existing or even third-party applications.

Here are the details.
