Matrox Video announced the launch of the new Matrox Maevex 7100 Series of single-channel 4K60 AVC/HEVC encoders today. These two new lower-cost members of the Maevex family of premium video products are “ideal for low-latency, high-quality, low-bitrate encoding of single high-resolution HDMI sources for audio and video streaming, contribution, and collaboration.”

For low-bandwidth applications requiring high levels of compression, Maevex 7100 Series encoders provide high-quality streaming and recording for both motion video and desktop content with a wide range of compression rates.

H.264 (Maevex 7112A) or H.264/H.265 (Maevex 7112H) models both stream and simultaneous recording with support for five streaming protocols — RTSP, MPEG2-TS, RTP, SRT and RTMP. They can increase productivity and ease deployment with the included Maevex PowerStream Plus application and the all-new web-based Maevex Command Center.

All updates are authenticated and validated before installation for additional protection. In addition, users can securely manage devices with 802.1x network authentication support and execution of IP control communication over the HTTPS protocol. The Maevex 7100 Series supports the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol with AES encryption for secure, low-latency, high-performance streaming on “noisy or unpredictable networks.”

Maevex 7100 Series encoders are fanless, small-form-factor, energy-efficient appliances. Matrox says they offer zero-latency input pass-through for real-time video output, empowering “flexible, simultaneous, uninterrupted operation” for operator desks, video walls, remote rooms, etc. Thanks to Matrox Video’s complimentary Maevex SDKs and APIs, users can “seamlessly add the encoders to any mission-critical environment.” Operators can easily integrate the Maevex 7100 Series with third-party AV systems, including Video Management Systems (VMS). TAA-compliant SKUs are also available.
