Maevex Delivers Full-Featured, Low-Bandwidth AV-over-IP at InfoComm 2014

phpyJma8MAMDistribute Full HD 1080p60 signage and other AV content over a standard and existing IP network at low, user-defined bit rates. See what the press has been talking about at InfoComm 2014. We’ll have a side-by-side comparison showing exceptional-quality results next to the original source content.

New Maevex™ features include fail-safe protection, enabling the decoder to continue playing signage or other pre-recorded content in the event of a lost connection, and recording AV source content over IP at resolutions up to 1080p60 to NAS. Features can be accessed using the upcoming API or Matrox PowerStream™ software release. Get a live demonstration at InfoComm in booth #N2247, or contact us to find out more.

The Matrox Maevex video over IP solution consists of the Maevex 5100 Series encoder/decoder pair that extends 1080p60 video and audio over a standard IP network. Matrox PowerStream software is used to remotely discover and manage the Maevex network, allowing administrators to adjust multiple stream parameters. Based on a dedicated H.264 encode/decode platform, Maevex Series enables excellent-quality, cost-effective video extension and playback over standard LAN connectivity at user-defined low bit rates for minimal network bandwidth consumption.

Video and audio over IP
