Matrox MVX-ED5150F overview

  • 1Description

The Matrox Maevex Encoder & Decoder solution, consisting of a Maevex 5100 Series Encoder and Decoder, allows you to extend or record up to 1080p60 video and audio over a standard IP network at user-defined low bit rates. The Maevex Encoder streams or records high-quality video and audio and uses the H.264 video compression standard. It can stream to Maevex Decoders or any device or PC that supports the required network protocols. It can also record to a shared network or NAS drive.

Matrox's PowerStream software is included and is used to remotely discover, manage, and adjust the Maevex network as well as let administrators define multiple stream parameters and balance network bandwidth consumption and quality. The Maevex API is also available to enable programmers to integrate current features into existing applications or create new, independent PowerStream-like software to meet specific needs.

  • Extend/record up to Full HD 1080p60 and 1920x1200 video and audio
  • H.264 compression for high-quality, low-bandwidth AV-over-IP
  • Support for wide-screen and standard aspect ratios and many resolutions
  • Scale streams before distribution for lower bandwidth consumption
  • HDMI or analog audio support
  • Open encoding allows for third-party software decode (e.g. VLC)
  • Record up to 1080p60/1920x1200 to NAS or shared network drive
  • Control frequency and duration of recording
  • Schedule the start time and date of recording sessions
  • Recorded user-defined file name includes timestamp for easy file management
Network Management
  • Operates on standard 100/1000 Mb Ethernet networks

    Matrox MVX-ED5150F reviews

    Maevex H.264 Encoder & Decoder is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from low quality, delayed images Okay, I get that this is marketed to be low-bandwidth, but take advantage of what's available! Even at 2 frames per second over a gigabit network, the image is too highly compressed for text at 1920x1080 to be legible, and even then the video and text are delayed a full second or two. This might be fine for most applications, but don't expect to be able to make out fine details (like small text).
