The Matrox® Maevex 6100 quad 4K encoder PCI Express® card is part of the next generation in Matrox’s H.264 AV-over-IP portfolio—the world’s first card to deliver quad 4K input capture and encode, supporting at least four concurrent 4K streams and recordings—simultaneously.
Coupled with Maevex PowerStream Plus software, the Maevex 6100 quad 4K enterprise encoder card delivers reliable industry-leading technology for flexible management of local or remote data, ensuring complete reach and control over the entire network.
The Maevex 6100 card is part of the Maevex 6100 Series, the next generation in Matrox’s AV-over-IP portfolio offerings. Built on H.264, this plug-and-play solution fits seamlessly into existing infrastructures and interoperates with virtually any network device, ensuring high-density content distribution and system scalability. Flexible setup and management of local or remote data comes via complimentary Maevex PowerStream Plus software.
The Maevex 6100 quad 4K enterprise encoder is the first in the world to drive simultaneous quad 4K/UHD and Full HD capture, encode, stream, and record concurrently from a single PCIe card.
A native network jack on the Maevex 6100 card eliminates reliance on the host computers’ network. PC independence means there is no need for a driver and no system bus data transfer is required or executed—all processing is performed on the card itself. Streams and recordings are sent over the Maevex 6100’s independent network connector, and only power is taken from the host system’s PCIe bus.
The multi-chroma sub-sampling feature delivers 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0, and 4:0:0 options to best balance quality and bandwidth demands of different encoding environments and markets. With up to 4K/UHD 4:4:4 sub-sampling support, the Maevex 6100 quad 4K card ensures best-in-breed encoding, while using standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks.
Matrox’s powerful PowerStream Plus software supports multi-protocol and multi-bitrate streaming, chroma sub-sampling, picture-in-picture (PIP) and quadrant composite options, and more. PowerStream Plus software is compatible with both generation of Maevex technology, namely the 6100 and 5100 Series.
The Maevex 6100 quad 4K encoder card ensures easy-to-implement scalability, with the flexibility to adapt set-ups as needs evolve. The Maevex 6100 PCIe card offers flexible ease-of-use, reducing overall cost per stream and making minimal power consumption demands of the PC system.
Combine up to 17 cards per validated chassis for complete support of up to 68 channels of 4K/UHD and Full HD multi-channel encoding, decoding, and streaming from a single PC-based system and delivered over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks. For efficient use of existing system and rack space, Maevex 6100 cards can also be placed into available slots in existing systems without compromising system integrity and stability. Customizable settings on each independent channel provide powerful scaling and deinterlacing to ensure only pristine graphics and video are encoded.
Work on multiple tasks in multiple settings and achieve multiple concurrent goals—all without sacrificing quality. This powerful Maevex 6100 card can feed on-premises and cloud-based servers and systems to reach internet viewers, push many streams over LAN for local viewers, and record to local or network storage for later editing and viewing, simultaneously. Maevex 6100 can also help deliver an unlimited number of video-on-demand streams through third-party technology like streaming media servers, content delivery networks (CDNs) and others.
H.264 technology meets almost every need and requirement for streaming and recording at excellent quality with minimal network bandwidth consumption—including at 4K. It also allows for delivery of multiple streams of almost every type of content over standard 1 Gigabit Ethernet networks; network streams or recordings can then be decoded using virtually any device.
Complete Reach and Control
Discover devices, manage content, access hardware, and monitor all streams and recordings from any location on the network via robust Maevex PowerStream Plus software. Included with the purchase of Mavex hardware, PowerStream Plus renders both generations of Maevex products entirely monitorable, configurable, manageable, and updateable via an intuitive and easy-to-use application able to be installed on any network-connected computer.
Easily tailor operations by integrating PowerStream Plus features into existing applications or creating new software applications with the PowerStream Plus API —available for both Windows® and Linux®— and provided source code examples. A REST API is also available for more flexible and portable software development and more direct access to Maevex devices.
