Panopto and Matrox Jointly Develop Media Capture Appliance

Panopto and Matrox Graphics today announced the forthcoming release of a new Panopto-certified media capture appliance. Purpose-built for the Panopto video platform, the new Matrox Maevex 6020 Remote Recorder supports video recording and live streaming in a compact, turnkey form factor.

Panopto and Matrox Graphics engineering teams jointly developed the Maevex 6020. With a compact form factor, low power usage, and whisper-quiet operation, the appliance is ideal for organizations looking for broadcast-quality video recording and streaming at an affordable price point. By simply connecting the appliance to the network and plugging in video sources, businesses and universities can:

  • Capture live and on-demand video: An intuitive, web-based dashboard enables the scheduling of video recordings and live broadcasts from anywhere. Customers can also control, schedule and monitor recordings from their phone using the Remote Control capability in Panopto for iOS and Android.
  • Share videos to any device: All videos captured by the Maevex 6020 are automatically published to Panopto’s video content management system, where they’re encoded for on-demand playback on any device.
  • Search inside videos: Panopto’s unique Smart Search technology enables users to search inside videos and fast-forward to any word spoken or shown.

The appliance is built for simple operation with no extraneous features. It provides presenters with a visual indicator of the current recording state and one-touch controls to start, stop, and pause recordings. In addition, the appliance enables organizations to automate the capture and streaming of presentations, lectures, meetings and events. It supports the scheduling of one-time and recurring events, remote configuration of recording devices, and previews of video feeds and audio histograms.

The Maevex 6020 remote recorder will be released this fall with full pricing details coming later this summer.

Here are the specs.
